    A little back round on Mr. Diller and Dr. Mikenstein. On Monday I was going to shave with my Isaac Diller. When I opened the razor to shave, one of the old scales broke at the hinge pin. I sent a PM to outback and we decided to go with new scales. Today was some good natured joking around in the SOTD about Mike raising Mr. Diller from the dead and Mike's avatar.

    OK.!
    The scales have been washed, but still need polished.
    The blade is all cleaned up, and ready for assembly.

    I started by cutting off the active rust with a SE razor blade.

    Then finished it off with 3M metal restorer/polish, and a rag wheel in the dremmel.

    It has some pits, but I can live with it.
    Especially now that I know it's NOS.!!
    Nothing more than a factory edge, with no signs of touching a stone on the spine. It also had no washers between the tang n scales, with no visible wear from opening and closing, except from me opening it with the rust that was present.

    Some of the pieces I've been working on in the last few months. Plain steel razor is 80CrV2 to be paired with toxic green Kirinite scales. The fine lined damascus kami is a smidge under 8/8 and is a pure wedge. The smaller ones are a lot lower layer count and around 5/8 and hollow ground.

    How are you going to hone the pure wedge. In theory a pure wedge has zero hollow grinding and the bevel would be from spine to edge, unless I'm missing something.

    Indeed you are correct. This one must have a taped spine in order to be honed.

    You know, those occasional dark rays in it are really pretty unusual. Could it be red alder? Are you on the Pacific coast?

    It'd be really interesting to see what that would look like sanded really smooth and given a couple coats on something glossy. Sometimes rays like that have different refractive properties than the surrounding wood and you can get a really cool depth effect.

    Good job cleaning that blade up Mike. Too bad it was abused considering it's NOS.

    Would that be a single layer of tape or multiple layers?

    Bob, I'm thinking a single layer might not be enough & it would have a wide bevel. I could be wrong. I'm wondering how many layers of tape it will take. I guess it also depends how wide the spine is. It would have a slightly stronger edge than a hollow ground wedge.
