Pick up this Globusman for a song because it is missing a tip that broke off at the pin.
It is just to beautiful to give it a rescale, with a blade that is .880 inches wide.
Been looking at and thinking about how to make a new tip for a month. This is the results.

To give the tip strength at the pivot, i embedded pin stock into the rear to act as rebar.

Cut a Lexan backer just oversized of the profile, used tape to contain epoxy, mixed epoxy in a bag so there is 
No air bubbles, and filled it up.

Gave It some time to harden, filed to shape and wet sanded to polish.

The hardest part was to duplicate the transparent 3-D depth of the original. I used multiple coats pearlescent paint, sanding and polishing in between. A few black accent lines to finish. Put all back together and will hone soon.

It always a pity to see nice razors that succumb to accidental abuse or neglect. You bought it for a song, fixed it yourself, and your happy with it is all that matters.
