    That is a beautiful example of a custom restoration. You must also have a Master's Degree in pictorial essay. Nice.

    Well guys! I finished up the project!!

    I decided to use the original lead wedge, but, it was pretty gunky, so, I started to clean it up



    Here are the edges, polished up



    Then it was just a matter of pinning it into the wedge end of the scales




    And finally, here it is - the reason for ALL of that work - a mother of pearl scale that is capable of flexing!




    Here are some finished pics!

    Stunning work Brad, and thank you for the brilliant documentation on the process. This gives inspiration to more that me, I am sure. Seeing the finished razor, I'll confess I did feel a small twitch of envy. Someone is going to be very proud to shave with that one. Well done
