    Default A Wade & Butcher With Spanish Point

    Hello everyone. After a long absence, so long in fact that I can't remember my old user name and password from the forum that was compromised.
    Here is a W&B that I shaved with today after finally completing the resto.

    I forgot to use tape along the spine and I also forgot to sand and smooth the inside of the scales. Why, I have no idea. New Rosewood scales. I feared to put it to the greasless because I would probably have eradicated the remaining nomenclature that is readable but faint.
    OMgosh!! Scratches, scratches and still more scratches. I'm embarrassed.

    It performed the parlor trick; AKA cut a hair as you drag it across the blade. Pops hairs on my arm.
    Anyway it shaves awesome.

    Restored one very similar, recently. Like yours, it needed a lot of the heel, reshaped. You still need to thin and remove some of the stabilizers, so your not honing on them. Its causing a frown, just in front of them.

    Their not really meant to be Spanish points, though it is nice to shave with, they've just seen a lot of use, and time on the hones.

    Scales look good, too.!
    You could carefully sand the insides with a fingernail file/ emory board, or sandpaper on a Popsicle stick.

    Thanks Mike, that's a good idea. I've got a number of small files and various grits of emery boards. I see exactly what you mean about the stabilizers. Will have to work on that.

    W & B got it right. I also notice that for some reason my W & B razors seem to really like coticules.

    I set bevels on a 1K then go through Norton 4K/8K and end on my coti with light slurry to just water. Then I finish with CrOx on balsa.

    The edges are keen and comfortable and last a long time with just stropping on linen and leather. They refresh easily using just the coticule.

Mike honed the 1 above for me on a coti, and it is a beautiful edge, keen and smooth. (Sorry, I originally uploaded a pic of a different WB I rescaled, and I couldn't seem to delete it-2nd razor in the SOTD is the one.).

    I've been searching all over the web, trying to figure out what vein that coti came from, Aaron. Out of the four that I have, this one is one of those Coties, coti lovers search for, as for finishers go.

    Very hard, with a look of quartz in it, and a rainbow of colors. Semi hard to slurry, with DMT.
