    Default ERN 1166 in Stained Oak Scales

    This is my first full out restoration (i.e. blade to a mirror finish, scales, CA coat, decent looking pins). Let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    I think it looks nice enough that my first question would be, "How much?"

    Very nice looking razor.

    Mark that looks very nice. The fact that you say it is your FIRST full restore speaks aloud about what your future razors will look like. GREAT JOB!!!

    Wonderful work would you ever think of doing something for other members? If not you should

    Fantastic job. Mine never turn out like that- I just don't have the patience to sand and sand... to get that mirror finish. I'm sure you are on the right track!

    Very nice! You've done a thorough job there & the standard of work seems very high! Did it pin ok & are you happy with how the blade centres? I found that to be the hardest part.

    The centering part took a couple tricks. They first was to sand the inside pieces flat and then the second was to not install the internal (thrust?) washers. For some reason (maybe added play or wiggle room) they would cause the blade to be off center. Shimming the blade to either side with an extra one didn't seem to work either, but for some reason, no washers worked out.

    Thanks for the positive feed back. More to come eventually.
