    Default StubTail Rebuild

    Just finished up a full rebuild
    Almost exactly the same thickness on the scales too
    The old ones came in at .107” and the new customs left at .102”
    Cleaned up and transferred the silver Badge also. That was fun, drilling into a perfectly polished completed front scale😅
    The owner decided on any wedge other than lead, so I did a polished Elk Antler wafer
    Matched the old outer washer’s look going with domed SS and Brass pins
    Honing 1-5-10 Chosera into a Select grade Coticule finish
    Stamped Warrented “Amsterdam”
    I guessed it at 1795 give or take

    Beautiful razor and outstanding work on rebuild. It is hard to believe something that old can still be used for it's intended purpose. Job well done.
