    Thumbs up Grelot, Friodur, Wonderedge, Wade & Butcher - Mix 'n Match

    These are some of the finest razors on the market. It's always such a pleasure to be able and enjoy them for a while.

    TI's Le Grelot. Wonderful smooth shaver. Blade was perfect and only needed new scales. Carbon Fiber/G10 in blue with brass, SS and nickel silver hardware.

    The wonderedge's original scales were badly warped. Razor was heavily tarnished with some deep patina. Got polished to a wonderful DD shine. Scales are black paper micarta and all hardware was transferred. Brass and silver nickel hardware.

    Friodur 17. What a wonderful blade. Blade just needed a light buff and scales chosen are burgundy micarta. The Twin logo and Friodur inlay were transferred from the old faux ivory acrylic scales. SS, silver nickel hardware and third pin.

    Lastly a W&B, The Celebrated, For Barber's use. A true classic. Blade had been restored a long time ago. Scales are faux ivory micarta. Brass, SS and nickel silver hardware.

    As you can tell none were easy scale materials. My fingers are still cramped from sanding. But alll took a really amazing edge and I enjoyed the brief moment of test shaving them. Couldn't resist.

    Great stuff Max! I especially like that you transferred the hardware from the old scales to the new on the DD and the Friodur.

    Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

    Max, you have one hell of an eye for creating a well suited scale. They always match perfectly!
    What did the blade on the Friodur look like? I have a 14.

    I'll vote for the Duck too, but it's not as if the choice is easy. Lovely razors.
