    Wow, Mike-That one has potential-it'll be interesting to see how you handle that rusty swiss cheese on the heel end. The scales look good, though! We know you're up to the challenge.

    So I finally finished the Wosty IXL smilin' Sheffield in a near-wedge grind, and took a few quick deck shots while I had the light:

    Camel bone scales with brass pins, and collars from our Romanian supplier. Turquoise recon wedge. I polished it up mostly with 600 wet-dry, followed up by 1k grit crocus cloth lubed with 3M marine polish and elbow grease. I left some minor age marks and it's sort of satin/gloss. It'll have to go in the honing cup for Christmas break at this point, but nice to get another one off the bench!

    It will be interesting to hear how the heal works out. I’m a little bit cautious after having tossed to that I put a lot of time into, so I would start with getting a clean bevel. There is so much steel in those old wedge you will likely find good steel, just how far away is it. I’ve had a couple where the rust was just on the very surface.

    A A Ron, looking good and always nice to get another off the bench.

    I’m carving, one side done and the other about to hit the jewellers block.

    The heel is questionable, but I think I'll be able to reach good steel, without too much loss. We'll see.!

    Hit it with some 600. One side is almost clear, the other, the dark side of the moon.

    I have absolute faith that if that razor can be salvaged it is in the right hand.
    My carving adventure is done for now. I have to see if they get bleached or just oiled. The colour will even up a little from just oiling them but I am partial to unbleached.

    Man, gotta catch up

    Nice work ScoutHikerDad, that recon stone looks really nice. How difficult is that stuff to work?

    Outback, looks like you've got a bit of challenge. I look forward to seeing how you deal with it.

    Rezdog, really nice carving. Those look incredible.

    I had a bit of a setback with my Wosty. Apparently, I didn't cut a deep enough chamfer in one of my pivot collars. After sanding the pin flush, it worked it's way loose while I was working on the bevel. No drama and it should be simple to correct.
