    Default Boker in Black Paper Micarta

    Here is the second of two from Dllandry. Very similar razors, so I went with opposite scale colours. Here's the link to the first razor: Dovo BQ in Hunter Orange, and a Boker Extra Hollow in Micarta

    For it, I did ivory paper micarta with a blond horn wedge and brass hardware.

    For this one I did black paper micarta with a white bone wedge and brass hardware.

    This is the last one (I think) until after my wedding in July. I may putter around with my own stuff, but I don't think it would be good for my sanity to be doing restores and helping to plan at the same time.

    Enjoy the pics.

    Wow, not sure I had ever seen a set of micarta looking that glossy. They could pass for horn.
    Is that a CA finish?
    Congratulations on the wedding!

    Nope....wet sanded to 2500, then up to 12k micromesh. buffed out on fabulustre, with spiral sewn. Then a clean loose cotton wheel to finish it off.
