Polished up the blade which has a very nice etch reading
"You lather well, I shave well". Did the scales out of streaked horn adding an Ivory wedge which I scalloped to fit the tip of the blade just for fun as a nice detail.

Hi Mark

The streaked horn material is pure class Clap

As is the scallop detail in the ivory wedge Thumbsup

Do you have a photo that clearly shows the etching on blade?

Take care, Mike

Not a very good one Mike but here is what I have. Unfortunately with this type of etch there is little you can do to restore them or remove pitting.

Hi Mark

Thank you Smile

Does it say, "Lather Well, I'll Shave Well"? The etching does look good on the blade...

Take care, Mike
