    As you can see the pitting was a bit deep, I cleaned and polished to the bottom of it, but I would have had to do a regrind to pull it out totally...

    Nice save G-man ! Like what you did at the pivot end of the scales & how the tail flows too.

    Blade and scales came together beautiful. Perfect description to the grain of the horn.

    Very nice save! I really like that Masecraft white streaked horn. I just wish they offered the solid black horn in the same size blanks. I don't have a bandsaw to cut the thick ones they do offer.

    I can't thank Glen enough! He was so patient and understanding about the restoration of my Great Grandfather's W&B Wedge!

    I love the look! The original scales seemed so wimpy! The entire project was well worth the wait!

    My Great Grandfather's name was Watson A.(Wat) Davis. My 17 year old son, Wat's Great Great Grandson, Connor Watson Davis will be the first one to shave with it. Wat died in 1934. What's going to be so cool is that Connor doesn't know that he gets to use it first! It's an early birthday present as he turns 18 in the middle of April!

    Thanks for the background Roy. I'm sure Connor will be thrilled!

    It looks great Glen. I like the flow with the tail as well.
