I am experimenting with some different ways of finishing a razor and one of the "victims" was this Friodur.
I took the blade to 600 greasless, then light buff with emery to make it shine just a rad, but in essence it is bright satin finish.

The scales are Mica Acrylic, with overlay transfer. I used brass pins and stainless washers to put the razor together, the wedge is smoke acrylic.
