Awww. I was hoping I could do it myself, but honestly in my current living situation (at the hotel I work at, since I didn't want to renew my apt lease and the wife and I are moving here in a month back to West TN since we're done with college), getting all of the honing equipment right now just isn't feasible. So that's why I was hoping to be able to do it on the 12K barbers hone. Oh well. I will likely send it off to Larry to get honed then. I already talked to him and he said he'd do it for $15. I will definitely clean it up with some Mothers before I send it off though, and take additional pics of the progress.

Polished the blade with Brasso and here's what it looks like now:
As you can see, oxidation occurred on the scales when I got them wet. I washed the entire thing off after polishing, because there was some gunk down in between the scales. Rookie mistake I guess? Any ideas on how to get the scales back to black?

Oxidation problem easily solved with some Orange Glo!

Errr, scratch that. It oxidized again after the Orange Glo. ZAP Wood Restorer took care of the issue.

Nice blade at a good price! About 80% of my collection is from Ebay and I am continually amazed at the quality/price of many of the vintage blades on the 'Bay-Gearhead

1000 /1500 grit wet sand and finish the horn scales with mothers and watch the shine like new. Razor looks nice btw, good work.... And it only gets better :-)......... Making Old Razors Shine N' Shave, Once Again.
