I've fallen considerably behind in my razor restore production schedule, but am hoping to find some time in the coming weeks both pre and post-Christmas to make a dent in the backlog. I had prepped about 10 blades a month ago or so and most have remained as shown here — cleaned-up but without any scales... The blade at top left is an 8/8 hollow-tipped Sheffield 'Tally Ho' blade from F. Fenney. For this one, I chose some scales made of golden translucent horn. I had some time yesterday for some sanding and polishing of this set of scales. Hand-sanding starting at 300 grit up to 1500; then micro-mesh up to 8k. For this razor, the wedge will be of amber and the hardware all brass. Making progress.... more to come!
