    Default Wade & Butcher

    I've had this razor for a few months now and decided it was time to clean it up. Original dark horn scales look like a dog bit chunks out of 'em so I put them aside to make horn powder. These bone scales were taken from another razor. Blade around 11/16th, has taken a nice fine bevel. It was in good nick so gave it a scrubbing with 3M Marine and fine steel wool. Then very light sanding, polish and a satin finish. I could swear I have before pics but I can't find the bloody things anywhere.

    Very nice. I like the way you di the color motif with the scales and the stone for the pictures.
