    New customs made with slightly streaked black horn at .110" thickness,,, even used the original Lead wedge at the end BTW that is .045 at the end

    Brass pins with SS and Brass stacked outer washer as close to the old originals as I could fashion.. Tried to bring it back to original always fun trying to match their old tolerances.. Those old farts could build a razor

    You've got a ding in the horn of your anvil.

    You'd better fix that soon.
