    Default W. Greaves & Sons circa 1820

    An early W. Greaves and Sons 6/8 with a round toe and fancy spine. Circa 1820. The blade was too corroded to determine the original finish. A glaze finish was chosen to mask some light pitting that remains around the makers stamp. I believe a glazed finish was also the most common finish used. The shape of the original scales were copied with a lead wedge in honey horn and are .105 thick. The original steel collars were used in the restoration. In process pictures are off the 400 grit belt and the bevel set on a 1K.

    Another stunner-Man, I would probably pay to watch you take one of those old junker blades to the beautiful, even lustre you get on your restores.
