    Geneva Cutlery Co. Razor. Is it a knock-off ? ?

    120 grit to start is to coarse. Try 400 and work your way up to 2000.

    New scales for Halls Electro Temper 8/8

    The blade is marked Halls Electro Temper, the face has Barber and an R, probably once was marked barber razor or rattler. It's got light pitting throughout but I feel the pitting adds a little character. The scales are made from redwood burl and it has some very nice birds eye burls and lots or...

    New scales for 19/16 GB and Anchor straight

    The G10 has red and black layers. The red is pretty light and hard to pick up on a camera without perfect lighting. I get my G10 from masercraftsupply.com. They have all kinds of neat materials to work with.

    New scales for 19/16 GB and Anchor straight

    New van halen

    Got me a cool Frederick Reynolds

    I've never used oil and wood hardener together so I don't want to say one way or another. Oil won't improve the strength of the scales like hardener or CA glue, it just rehydrates them and improves flexibility. All three methods will definitely improve the appearance though so if the delam is...
