Wonderful little blade. I could only take it so far as the blade is relatively small and though a wedge , quite thin but it turned out nice and took a great edge.
Scales , dull and yellowed as they were came up fine.
Love these DD razors.

Nice job! What do you use to bring the scales up so clean without scratching them?

Sandpaper!

They are first sanded , starting with 320 (220 in some areas) to remove flaws etc. then polished with the usual buffing compounds.

Just going to polish wouldn't produce as good a result .
So basically you have to scratch them up even more before you can make them clear.
