Beautiful scales! Any idea what they are made from?When I first shaved with this razor, I trusted the edge the previous owner has left on it, but it did not leave me very satisfied. Luckily, I had bought last year a Coticule that I had forgotten and left behind. The shave today was much improved.
Based on my experience cleaning up a Friodur 17, if you gently rub the inside and outside of the scales with food-grade mineral oil and 00 and then 0000 steel wool, they will return to their original light yellow. No need to remove the blade. Mine was the same color as yours before, and here is the after color:J.A. Henckels Zwillings, Friodur 72,
Nice Nice razor! +1 on the scale design, materials, and finish quality. I enjoy seeing rarities and nice restorations here.Thank you, those are made in horn. I have to confess I did not do this restoration. I got this razor from some guy in Nice, France.
