    Cool Aquamarine Acrylic - Reynolds

    Haven't done one like this in quite some time

    This flash Acrylic is so beautiful in hand the pics never quite capture the 3D effect nor the subtle little flashes of light

    I brought the scales down to .115 in thickness the wedge is .065 at the end, pins are NiAg and I used a double stacked set of SS lock washers..

    Polished out the Frederick Reynolds blade to a period correct soft satin, this one has a very unique grind to it for a Sheffield, makes me think it was a Factory Re-grind.

    Honing- Chosera 1-5-10 with a Select Grade Coticule finish

    Beautiful job Glen! That Acrylic with the NiAG really sets it off. Love those Frederick Reynolds, great shavers.
