    Thought the same thing, Rez. If I could...I would. If I had a donor that would work, I could faux the black streak into it. That I can do.!

    I have come across a few that had black on one side, dark brown on the other. So I can deal with it till I can change it, or not.

    Don't think any of those would work on naturally black horn. These are dye removers, and I'm leery about bleaching or peroxide use, as used with bone or ivory.

    But the info is still useful.. Thanks.!

    I’ve tried stuff for bleaching hair, peroxide, and have even tried getting the oil out first with industrial degreasers first. I was trying to imitate the nice silver patina you get on very old and well kept scales. I have not been successful. I will likely tinker with it more when I get back into razor work.

    To me, its a sign of horn that is getting dry.

    I have a set of very nice, and well hydrate scales on a Wade and Butcher that I really like that are all turned silver. They hydrated and polished up quite nice, matched with a very nice patina blade that is a nice dark gray, no black on it. It’s a nice set. I have half a set of scales with the same effect and have tried to make a match for it a few times. More experimenting is needed.

    po-TAE-to, po-TAH-to I guess. What some people call "patina," I call, "dirty old crap I want off my razor." To each his own.

    I have one razor where the razor was kept very well for a very long time, leaving a nice gray effect on the steel. The rest were not that well kept and I cleaned all the black rust and soap scum off of them.

    That's how I felt about this one, Rez.

    No rust or pits, just years of Patina.

    That is a nice example of nice patina.

    I understand why people like it. It's just not for me. I have this one that is "nicely patina'd"

    I used it as an example of what the 3M Marine will do.

    You can really see how much it has there. It looked really nice and even...if you like that kind of thing. When I get to it I'll polish all the rest of it off of there also.

    It's not a judgement. To me they should just be shiny.
