    Default OOOOooooooo Gotta love a W&B

    Wade & Butcher 7/8+

    Just a polishing on the steel somebody played with Sandpaper and almost erased the Stamps and Makers Marks
    I had to work with what I had so I only polished the steel and used no actual cutting compounds

    Scales are Black Buffalo Horn with very light streaks that become more visible when the light hits it right..
    The scales are .110" thick and patterned from an old set of W&B scales I keep on the bench just for this use..
    Faux Ivory wedge is .060 at the very end.
    Pins are Solid Brass, with Brass and SS washers to lock it all down.. Bearing Washers are also Solid Brass..

    Superlative work as usual Glen! When I get back to the world again I'll have to send mine for a touch up I miss using them.

    Great job!

    I like the fact the the blade still has a bit of character, a mirror polish would have lolst that and also the stamps.

    Really nicely done.
    Just the right amount of patina for a razor of its age.
