    Cool Case Red Imp & Robeson Suredge

    Here are a couple of recent American restorations. Both are super smooth shavers!

    First up a Case Red Imp. Finished this blade in a two-toned soft finish on the faces and high polish on the spine. Touched up the lettering on the tang and polished the scales.

    Next is a Robeson Suredge. Polished soft satin on the blade faces and high polish on the spine. Gold leaf applied on the dimpled tang instead of black to match the look of the scales and the brass end caps.

    Thank you...Surprisingly the scales were straight for being 'so bendable and flexible'.
