This came in already shortened but the scales were way out of line. The blade had some scratches and the worst of it was on both sides of the stamping which I was able to remove.
I made up some new Black Horn scales and transferred the inlays from the old scales to complete the look.

Great work, Mark! I have one very similar, but not as short.

Thanks. Even as a shorty this will still do a great job and look great doing it. I like shaving with short blades. They're sort of like sports cars on your face.

Very nice, wouldn't mind a short blade like that (as I shave often with a feather DX).

Oh wow! We've had a few shorty blades show up here recently. I am a BIG fan of short edges.

Wish that one was a square tip instead of round..

There's a really cool YouTube vid on removing the inlay.. Actually, it was the logo and end caps on a DD. What a project.

I've done my share from DD's on down. Get so e Acetone and they just fall off. Easy peasy.

A square tip is only a grinder away. But so is a barbers notch , French point, Spanish point. Whatever you want it to be.

Sr.

Very well done work. I love friodurs. One of my first razors was a friodur 8/8. Very smooth shaves. I do reco them.

Thanks
Ken

Thanks for the tip ! And how do you put them on to the new scale ? Do you scratch the scale first, do you glue it or... ?

Epoxy works just fine. Scuff the back of the onlay and be sure there isn't any wax/cmpd. On the scale.

Great work Mark. It looks better than a production razor.
