I finished this set of razor scales a while ago. The blade was ground by a guy I know from some straight razor meetings (yes, they exist). He ground it too thin to hone by normal means, so I got it for free and threw some bloodwood scales onto it. The finish is cyanoacrylate (Gorilla Glue Super Glue) sanded up to whatever the highest grit of Micromesh is and then polished with red and white turtlewax polishing compounds. The wedge is Ebony, and the pins are brass rod peened over micro-washers. If I can ever get the thing to sharpen up, it’s by far the most comfortable razor I’ve ever held.
