Here is a razor I got as part of a barter. The guy I got it from bought it as you see it in the first shots. Apparently someone used a Dremel to start a restoration.
I figured most anything I do would help this razor. I broke it down and decided against using the blonde horn scales. I had made this acrylic some time ago but never used it. So I make up some scales. Yellow isn't my favorite color, but seeing so much black in my collection it's a nice change of pace.
Hope you enjoy it.

We use space magic & fairy dust. Biggrin

No, it's just a matter of putting in the time & effort. You start by sanding away the imperfections and get a rough shape. Then refine the grit of sandpaper until about 1,000 or so. Then polish it up using abrasive compounds to give it a mirror shine.

If all done by hand, it can take many hours. Probably 2 days work I'd say.

Beautiful restoration! If you have time, maybe you can tell us what honing progression you used to get it shave ready.

Beautiful restoration job. I really like those scales. I have too much black in my collection, also.

Thanks guys.
I've been doing this a while now as I'm working my way through my collection. Polishing a blade is pretty much the standard, sand, sand, and then sand some more before polishing.
Sorry for the delay responding but being new to the site I didn't realize I had to subscribe to each thread. I'm used to it being automatic.
