    Default Friodur 72 custom restore

    I am experimenting with some different ways of finishing a razor and one of the "victims" was this Friodur.
    I took the blade to 600 greasless, then light buff with emery to make it shine just a rad, but in essence it is bright satin finish.

    The scales are Mica Acrylic, with overlay transfer. I used brass pins and stainless washers to put the razor together, the wedge is smoke acrylic.

    Very nice custom. She's not too far over the top, but just right.

    Nice work my friend!

    What brand of Emery did you use? I've been wanting to play with some but there are some out there that seem to be lacking while others are said to cut better.

    Just wondering
