I used this blade the other day and posted it in the Shave thread. Oscar11 asked to see the spine on it so here it is. It's in original condition as I haven't done anything to the blade itself. But I did a repair on the case since it was missing a small trim piece.
I made some acrylic in a matching color to make the stock for the piece.
I made a matching profile in a block of wood to which I added brass strips to act as a depth gauge as I filed in the small saw tooth edges. When done I simply glued it in place.
Now the razor is complete. I'm leaning towards not breaking it down and using it as it. It's a wonderful shave.
