This was found in a box of blades at the flea market. A James Johnson (1818-1853), 6/8 Silver Steel near wedge, sporting a double thumb notch’s but no scales. Other than age funk, it is in respectful condition. I was going to make scales, but decided to look thru my donor draw of sacrificial victims. Glad I did. Another rescue from years ago that I forgot about will make a perfect donor. Someone tried to rescale a meat chopper that was way to big for its shoes and its heel came out past the bottom, ouch. The scales are pressed horn embossed with “silver steel” and “celebrated razor”—— perfect marriage. The usual sanding and polishing to the steel and horn. The scales came out better that I ever expected. Some dry fittings plus a few tweaks to have the blade fall in the center and YEAH BABY!!!
