    Default WB 13/16 :<0)

    I actually got obsessed this last week and restored a few razors I have been looking at on my bench. This one I did in honey horn with no wedge, stacked washers (which I really am not to sure I'm crazy about) and stainless bearing washers.(cause I can't remember the right term.) Still working on the photography skills too !

    The way I got it.

    Unhoned but ready. I did hone it when I first got it and about took off my chin.

    I have a tendency to leave the spine and tang alone as much as possible but I can't resist polishing the heck out of the part that touches my face. This one had some deep pits and because it is so thin I left them. You may not be able to see them in the after shots but they are very easy to spot in the before shots. I could have gotten the wedge a little tighter in the rear but hey, it's my first shot at horn and the ca glue did not do what I had hoped :<0) .
    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    How do you do the wedge end? Leave more scale material on the inside? Very nice look.

    Yes I just thinned this set on the inside and left enough material on the end to shape in a wedge. The trick is to go slow and try to keep it even. This set is kind of lop sided in that one side of the wedge is actually thicker. It was the most time consuming part of making these scales for me. I lost track of even when I spent to much time worrying about the space it was making on the other end.

    It's a beautiful thing to see an old shaver back on the line, fine job.
