Twin Duck restored as close to the original condition as possible. The original tang was black , so I blued it after I cleaned up the rust. I could not buff it because it is hammer forged, but the new finish is very even and deep black.
The blade has no hone wear at all. I did not want to buff with compounds to avoid rounding the spine so I did full progression hand sanding followed by felt and leather wheel buffing with black emery. As a result some pitting is left on the blade
The original scales were bone with a crack running through the wedge pin. The original idea was to strenghten with CA and leave the scales as they are , but during unpinning one of the scales snapped at the pivot pin. I made new bone scales and stained them with coffee to achieve more antique look.

Looks awesome! I sold one of these not too long ago. They are the precursor to the Dubl Duck line and that hand forged tang is really cool.
