    Default Duck sittin' in the green shade.

    Well the past 2 weeks have been grueling for me (self inflicted) but I did manage to get a Duck fixed up and flying again.

    I think this Duck was kept in the same medicine cabinet as the 15/16 I just did. Same seller, almost as bad.

    I got the blade all cleaned up before I did this to myself doing some charity work. My fault, being in a hurry I ran them into a tack strip cleaning some grout I just placed.

    Enough of the sob story here is what I got done today.

    11/16 Satinedge custom restore in green acrylic.
    1 more sob... I now have my 3rd freaking cold this season so, that is my excuse the for the less than average pictures.

    I almost didn't use this color because I thought it was too close to "Duck Under Glass" to be in the same 7 day set of Satinedges.
    Now that I see them together I think the color difference is enough to tell them apart.

    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    Nice Duck!
    I need to be careful looking at your restorations before I think I NEED a Dubl Duck.

    I Love that green acrylic satin edge, Pups! Those are my favorite DD's, but they've gotten very dear, including one I'm eyeing as we speak!

    Sweet work 10Pups I keep reading about these guess one day I'll have to get one. I read about a Spike got one in decent shape honed it up and it's a great shaver. Need to take it apart for a proper clean up and mild restore. I'm starting to develope an affinity for smaller blades (4/8s, 5/8s).

    Get healthy I caught one of those holiday colds also back in Nov.

    Pups, ur ducks come out awesome everytime. Thanks for sharing. As a Sheffield collector I usually pass right by ducks- even though they are gorgeous and renowned shavers- but seeing the ones you pump out I'm thinks I may have 1.... Or 2 in my future.

    Thanks for sharing and of course........
    Get well soon!
