A nice clean up using the Bakelite scales.
I read on a thread that you can't remove the surface and have Bakelite shine again. I didn't think this was true and here are my results.
The blade came out very nice and has a true mirror finish to it. As it did from the factory.

In the pics you'll see the scales with one being done. The second is sanded, then deeper to remove the odd circular scratch at the wedge end, then polish.
Wrapped it up with SS washers and Nickle pins.

Very nice.

Super short history on Kron-Punkt:
Originally a brand name held by Heups but was acquired by Dovo in 1969.

That is just amazing.

How do you get the stamping to look like that, so dark and crisp? Do you paint it in?

I don't paint it in. It's most likely some cmpd. left and the contrast between the polished metal and stamp.
