    Default Krusius Bros.

    A basic resto to keep it original. Polish up the blade, scales and repin it.

    Awesome work.
    Love the way the blade cleaned up so nicely.
    What did you use on the blade?

    I think I could see the scratch patterns on the blade polish being from spine to edge ... if so... you mush have used a very small wheel (maybe 2 inch) to reach right under the spine... am I right?

    What you're seeing is a ghost of the factory grinders. With some blades being so thin I can only sand them so far. But I don't regrind or use wheels to restore razors. Just sanding.

    But to get that mirror polish, you must be using polishing compound on a wheel....??

    Sure,, that's the last step. A pass on the buffer to get the shine. But I use it as sparingly as possible.

    I am sorry to ask that many questions, but what sanding/polishing progression to you use?

    as for me, I usually start from 600grit greaseless, then black emery, gray stainless, white rouge, then hand polish... I usually do the polishing compound with a 2 inch wheel in order to get the spine to edge scratch lines which I think look better

    I try to use the buffer as little as possible. The majority is sanding and it depends on the blade. One like this I may start at 600 or so possibly to 1000 but not too often.
    The buffer maybe if it needs it two fine grits for the polishing. I generally don't care for the smaller wheels.
