I polished up the blades on this Clauss, Carbo-Magnetic and the Blue Steel. I wrapped them up in some various blue acrylic that I made. Since I had some extra I made up a matching brush for the Blue Steel.

   
   
   
   
   
   

Here are the finished pieces.

Do you buy your acrylic in sheets, rods, or both?

Neither. I don't buy acrylic. As I indicate here,, I made it. This way I can have it look any way I want it to. I like custom work.

I remember once on another thread you said I was "crazy" for doing this. I think it's fun. And comes in handy at times.

I also use it for all my brushes as I showed here

Again, as I have said before, your work is marvelous. It always amazes me how someone, yourself, can do all that you do and produce with your hands. Excellent.

Happy Shaving. Sam

Just got my razor back today which further confirmed that Mark is not just a woodworker. He is a magician. In case you didn't see it in another post here it is before and after. The mismatched scales were tossed and replaced with a pair of horn scales that he found with natural white streaking. A one-of-a-kind faux frameback Frederick Reynolds to be sure. I feel obligated to say that yes, it is actually the same razor - really.

I too suspect some time travel going on behind the scenes with the way those razors end up looking...

Happy Thanksgiving
