    Cool Finishing up a couple of customs W&B and a Boker

    These came out to me from Freebird for rescales and some clean up...
    I did some light polishing on the buffers after I tore them down... Just to get the the blades gleaming again....

    The Boker went into a set of Bolivian Rosewood scales, the wedge is Black Buffalo horn, pins and washers are Nickel Silver and SS...

    The W&B was done essentially the same way except using Lignum Vitae for the scales, and a Emerald acrylic wedge, same pins...Both sets of scales were finished in wipe on poly... They were then buffed with Ren wax...

    Absolutely beautiful! They're beyond my expectations. When I sent them I told you to surprise me, and you have.

    Both beautiful pieces of work Glen. I dig the slick lines on the W&B scales

    Two superb restores Glen. I love the dark grains on the Rosewood.

    Freebird, one lucky bloke to own two such nice razors.

    The bolivian rosewood has an awesome grain. And the wedge on the set of Lignum is very striking. Nice job Glen!

    Well done once again my friend. You definitely have an eye for a classically lined scale despite the added Glen-ness. I especially like the lines in the lignum.

    Thank you for sharing.
