    Good taste, sir!

    The MOP scaled one is a lot flashier. However, in my opinion, also made well past their prime. The fit & finish and general design are simply not as nice. While that Arrow Razor, despite being very near the point of the company's decline, still feels nicely rooted to their history. Plus it's in fantastic condition!

    I really love the way that Arrow razor looks so stunning above. It looks as new as this Boker Pearl I have:

    The Boker Brotherhood

    I have two MOP razors with almost the same design except the opposite end from the tang is carved alike, but one of them, the MOP is trashed on both ends of one side & just one end on the other so I'm going to do a transplant. I'm not going to make my cut straight down though, rather at an angle so that the MOP will be seen w/o any gaps. I'm going to wait until a day I feel I can do it. I'll probably use my scroll saw & cut both pieces the same angle with extra left on each so I can work each piece down until they fit perfect, kinda like grafting. They have Henckles blades which one is trashed & the other is okay, has very slight hone wear but I have some good W&B blades. I'll practice on one end near a break so I don't mess it up because I only have one chance at it. My scroll saw is variable speed, so I'll get my speed correct & proceed with the surgery. They are both exact same models, even the numbers on the blades match but got 'em separately.

    I had to come back & edit. I typed Henckles but my computer & this crazy auto-correcting misspells words that a person originally types correctly!

    Hello!

    Take in the club, got an unusual batcher 8/8. Wedge. Soon the razor will come to me. This is my first wedge, now all razors are full hollow.

    I want to thank Zak for the razor and its amazing restoration!

    I hope you enjoy it!

    I haven't sold many of my restorations, I'm too much of a perfectionist. I'll be looking forward to hearing what you think of it!

    This Wade & Butcher was still in my possession. It had black, mat horn scales.

    A few weeks ago I saw a Wade & Butcher in this style, a american restaurator made.
    And I decided to change to this style.

    The blade got a regrind and polishing, which was made by Ulrik from Koraat Knives.
    The scales I made from camel bone, red acryl for the wedge and nickel silver pins from Koraat.

    It turned out wonderful and took a great edge. Sharp and smooth...perfect!

    To be honest, I'm also a perfectionist. Therefore, I decided to buy this razor. I liked how thoroughly and professionally it was restored. It's good that a lot of metal was not removed and the original state was kept as much as possible. There is no deep corrosion. Also looking for a wide wedge. I also noticed that the razor does not have much wear and has good geometry. Another very rare form of the blade.

    If not a secret how you managed to achieve such a narrow cutting edge? If I later sharpen the razor, will it remain the same or become wider?

    Now my main razor is John Clarke & Son 8/8.
