    Default materials for working horn

    Hi folks,

    Another thread in the "where to get" genre.

    Anyone any idea where to get the following stuff (or equivalent) in the low countries ??
    (1) pure neatsfoot oil
    (2) jeweler's rouge or dixon's ruby polishing powder

    Thanks to y'all,
    Wim

    You can find neatsfoot oil in stores that sell products for horses. Some fishing and outdoor stores have it also, at least here.

    I passed on the powders. In stead of powders have a look at Micromesh. It's awesome stuff and will put a nice shine on almost any material. It's also washable and reusable.

    It'll cost you a pretty penny (my set cost me €50 from DICK) but I've used it so much that I wouldn't know how to do without now.

    Drooling, I mean browsing their siteI found myself intrigued by this fellow here:
    Inflatable Cylindrical Drum Sander | DICK GmbH - More Than Tools

    I wonder whether this is not a good-to-have tool to replace heavy duty hand sanding on razor blades ...

    It might be. I don't restore a lot of razors. But yeah, that website will cost you a lot of money of you're not carefull. The beautifull materials, the wonderfull tools....I could go broke there if I'd allow myself.
