    Default Genco Henry XX Heirloom restore

    Another Vintage restore this week for Scott, he sent me his Grandfather razor and asked if at all possible to keep it as close to stock as I could...

    I polished out the blade on the buffers

    The scales were the real work they were oxidized out to a solid brown..
    I took the razor completely apart the sanded off the brown starting at 600 grit worked up through 200 then used the buffer with Plastic polish on it to get the shine back... Finally I used the Novus 1-2-3 plastic system on them...

    Re-pinned and ready for service again....

    The Novus 1-2-3 is specifically made to take out scratches and polish out Acrylics/Plastics... MAAS works pretty well as an all around cleaner/polish...

    Thanks for doing such great work on my Great Grandfather's razor. I cannot wait to shave with it and show my family what it looked like years ago. I appreciate everything.

    Thanks,
    Scott
