    Great work Rez really like the vintage look you pulled off on the Johnson with straight scales and patina. Man what a looker

    Nice work Rez, those are looking sweet! I like the collars, I have a pair of Joseph Rodgers I put similar ones on. "Bead findings" or something like that. They don't work on every razor but I think they are good when they do.

    Outback, I like what you are doing with the Packwood. I recently dug out one I did about three years ago and looking at it now I wasn't quite satisfied anymore. I had to take it apart, thin down the horn scales which were too thick, get a lead wedge in there instead of the faux ivory acrylic "spacer" I had in there before, use thinner thrust washers and use floret washers like was common on those instead of the domes I used before. I still don't think I have the shape of the scales quite right but it's doing ok.

    Three years ago..

    I've also been working on a Northfield that needed scales and a chip taken out and a heel reshaping. Black horn scales now, brass "cup" washers brass pins, lead wedge. There is some uneven hone wear but I managed to get a pretty even bevel after reshaping the blade.

    It is a nice feeling to get them off the bench, whether it is their first time there or not. Sometimes we learn a little along the way and fix some of the stuff we had done earlier.
    There is a lot of good work going on.

    Thanks for all the support guys.

    Indeed, I do appreciate the fine work.
    I have not been able to get much done as of late, personally. Living and working vicariously through you fellas is quite rewarding.

    Thanks for sharing your fine work!

    I think we all take turns in that regard Tom.

    My last endeavors were a bit short as the razor I rescaled and honed for Richard (Razorfeld) somehow slipped out of a hole in a priority box...How does THAT happen?
    Will find him something else around...

    Salute?

    Did you get an answer explanation about the hole in the box, Tom? That sounds pretty mysterious.
