Kept this one looking more original. Wasn't the worst I have seen but it wasn't the best.

I never seem to get the ones you can rub with a bit of polish and say " Look what I restored!"

Did the main part of the blade with a brushed finish but polished the spine, shaft , shoulders and tail. Managed to keep the etch in nice shape all things considered.

Duplicated the shape of the original scales in Black Horn with bullseye style washers and reused the wedge.

That you could salvage the etching like you did is amazing. Beautiful restore.

Another unbelievable job. I wish I could find someone to do that for me, as this old guy is getting a little "rusty".
