    Default Wostenholm , stub

    Pretty simple, pretty cheap. When I got it I cleaned it up some to see what I had.

    The line is rusted where the blade rested on the scales. It was on both sides.

    It bit me, but I have used it a few times now and it got used to me :<0)

    I basically unpinned and took my time with this. It had scale issues. Cracks inside at the pivot holes and crooked as a dog's hind leg. I thought for awhile they were turtle , but experts say no. I call it weird horn :<0) Weird grain pattern and just did everything weird. Smelled weird sanded weird. The pivot hole was so crooked I had to put the scales back to make it close at all.




    I am having such a fun time finishing off some razors , I don't make time to build a photo tent. Sorry.

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

    Looking good!

    It's fun restoring these old pieces of history, I never thought I'd enjoy it so much, even just some soaking, cleaning up, and sanding is very enjoyable.

    Yes, sometimes a lot of work on a razor, get it looking good, and the pics don't do it justice, these pics look great though - great job.

    That's a nice one, I love the wide gimped tang. I can still see it in identical but new horn scales, though. Maybe it's just reflections that make it look cloudy and delaminating.

    Nope you see. Those scales are full of character :<0) Fixed the scaling but it has bubbles too.

    Looks great as usual. I need to add a stub tail to my batch badly.
    May your lather be moist and slick, the sweep of your razor sure, and your edge always keen!
