    One rusted C-Mon blackie, one rusted junker

    might I suggest you actually use washing soda or borax rather than baking soda.

    well I figured I'd update the thread, the fat turned into tallow which quickly became... some soap I'm looking for 2 people in the US to test it after it's 3-4 week curing period. Scent is Black Amber Musk.

    Polishing, honing, repair questions

    ultimately you hone a razor AFTER it's polished. If I were to throw it in my polishing tumbler now it would need to be rehoned. I'd try to work it out with classic personally. Perhaps send them another email or even call them. Their phone number is at the bottom of this page...

    M.J.Higgins Restoration

    Got this in the mail as a restoration project. The purpleheart, epoxy finish and Nickel Silver pins were upon request of the owner. I popped the grain a bit on the purpleheart by scorching it a bit before finishing. Before: After:

    Making Scales

    maybe try something a little tougher like polyurethane, CA or epoxy.

    Making Scales

    No I think you just need to peen softer and use a better wood finish? You should not have cracked the scale just from peening.
