    Cool Wonder-Warp

    "Rush a restore,,, Wreck a razor"

    Man taking these things apart to fix warps is nerve racking
    Especially when the pins come out and you see this

    Now to gently and slowly warm it up and take the warps out and get it back together all without cracks

    I like Steam the best as it is accurate and easy to use

    By doing this on a Brass plate I can adjust as needed, I do it 3-4 times and let the Katalin relax slowly and cool it under cold water to hold

    If I want I can add a Tin Funnel over the pot and get a direct jet of super heated steam to adjust Horn, Bone, Ivory.. It just works for me pretty easy..

    The Brass acts as a heat sink and keeps everything even

    Why do you call the material Katalin when I call it celluloid, Glen?

    It is all types of Celluloid, Bakelite, or Formed Phenolics (phenol formaldehyde)

    But much like they are all Thurigens but some are Eschers and we make that distinction

    The Cracked Ice or Swirled type is often referred to as Catalin or Katalin by collectors..

    I always thought Catalin was the clear type on the Adoration De-Luxe? Indeed, sounds better than celluloid!
    Giesen & Forsthoff Adoration De Luxe

    I am going to de-scale a few I have in cracked-ice/tortoise celluloid to clear-coat them and see if they do not last longer.
    Them Goldedge scales....
    May be a good candidate as they are unpinned and straightened?

    A few Old Hess razors and such. Thin lamination of white inside, like the Goldedges.

    They way I understand it and it seems to bear out, is that the White coated ones are a more stable compound...

    Has not been my experience, Sadly!
    I have several examples which need straightening at times.
    Tired of messing with them. Straighten and coat. See if lack of air will stabilize them?


    Sort them out, they seem to go back.....
