    Hello again!
    Here is some pictures. I didnt really turn out quite as good as i would like. The blade is ok and pretty shiny but the scales need more work. I peened it anyway because i really would like to have a testshave with it right away.
    I gonna have another go at the scales later. Buff them with some patience this time, sand down the area around the wedge and replace the wedge with.. brass maybe.
    What do you think about the text on the scales. Should i just wipe the color on there and sand/wipe the rest away, the text is quite deep so that could work. Whats the best procedure here? needle with a little paint on and dab down the sunken lettering?

    I think use a toothpick with paint.

    However, consider two things:
    1. I honestly don't know, but how well will paint stick to oil soak horn?
    2. If you're going to redo them anytime soon, I wouldn't worry about painting with them so you don't worry about messing the paint up later. JMHO.

    I use thin compound CA to seal the cracks. The thin mix is designed to wick into cracks but you wont get 100% of the air bubbles out of the scales. Then as others have said, buff them with some compound. You can get a nice shine back.
