This razor was in pretty nice shape except for the odd deep pitting on both sides of the nose. Doesn't look like much but it was a bugger.
Got it to a mirror finish.
The scales? Well my photos just don't do them justice. They are just ablaze with color reflecting all the colors of a rainbow. Blues, reds, greens, you name it. You almost need sunglasses now to look at it.
The blade as I said came up just fine.
Did Nickle silver pins and mini washers to wrap it up.
Oh , I just have to try this one before it goes back.

Very nice, there's a lot of similarities with that razor to the King Pelicans.

Beautiful as usual. A few things really stand out to me. The lines on the top of the tang, how the are just straight lines and not to a point like most that are under the tang of western straights. Also the scales, total classic retro/art deco type scales. One other thing that is small but I really like it, the small notch on the nose of the blade. very cool. This one is really really appealing.
