    Default James Barlow ECHO restoration

    Here's a James Barlow ECHO I just finished up. New scales made from horn, brass collars (from Austin), brass pins and a lead wedge. It measures 15/16 at the widest and the spine is 1/4 inch thick. It was a pretty straight forward restoration, I went with a mirror-like finish as that's what it looks like was originally on the blade. Plus, I like shiny things as much as the next guy The tang stamp is pretty light near the center so I was cautious with the clean up there. This is the second set of scales I made for it because I was being picky about the first set I made. Just off the hones and I think it's going to be a nice shave in the morning. Thanks for looking!

    That's nice Tuzi. I know there is a lot of patience involved.

    Barlow was a very good maker and you've done him justice - in particular, your scale making is top drawer. I've got a few of his razors: the best is a very heavy wedge in ivory that shaves beautifully - it also happens to be the most expensive vintage razor I've ever bought.
