    I bought this razor, not being able to see the blade well, from the sellers pics. The blade that was inside the scales was a Kiebitz. The scales were in fantastic shape, just needing some polishing, and light sanding in areas. Well, being this is a C-Mon, I needed to find a donor C-Mon blade, and make a swap.

    Original scales and blade.



    Found donor blade, with a good C-Mon Blade.

    After some very delicate blade removal, so neither scales are damaged, I was successful. Just for yuks, I applied a coating of epoxy, to the inside of the C-Mon scales. This is because they are celluloid, and I don't want a chance of it gassing out.
    So, the scales and blade were both polished, and repinned. It is nice, tight, and perfectly centered. Now, just waiting to be honed.

    After it was all done. The pics don't do it justice. These are some of the most eye catching scales, in my opinion.

    Thanks guys. I've been a little unmotivated, to restore, and hone, lately. Hopefully I can find some time, to put a nice edge on a few, this week.

    Looks great, but not being a person fully educated in all things of a straights razor; what was wrong with it's original blade. I don't see chips, uneven wear or other things that would lead me to the conclusion of a bad damage; was it due to corrosion? More pics please. :)

    I believe that in the first post, he said that it was a mismatch and not a C-Mon blade.

    Though the green scales look nice, it looks great in black scale. :happy088:
