Evening Bevel, a silly question pertaining to neatsfoot oil rehydration of the horn scales and their effect on how well the horn/epoxy sticks to the scale. I've an old French razor that's been in neatsfoot for about four weeks now (was away on a trip longer than I expected). Is there any rule of thumb for how & how well must I clean the oil residue from the dings in order for the epoxy to stick to it? Is acohol or a more aggresive paint thinners necessary, or simply wiping? A very nice tutorial - cheers!
