W&B Vintage Restore

Post by Gssixgun »

OMG I remembered a before pic

This one came down from Canada for a restore, pretty straight forward except I got sidetracked for 2 days after the initial 220 grit sanding on the scales and left them soaking in Neatsfoot oil for that time. WOW if you have the time to soak them longer I would definitely recommend it.. It wasn't that the outcome was so much better it was just way easier to obtain after that

Full buffing on the blade, but kept the stamps, all new Tri-metal stacked washers and pins...

Bevel set = Chosera 1k

Sharpening = Naniwa SS (Henckles Version) 1-3-8

Nice job Glen! Glad the etching could be saved. What's the blade measurement?

I like the detail of the stacked washers and pins.

Glen, my dear friend, once again you show the master's hand. You've taken a peg-legged pirate and turned him into a prince. Oh yes, well done.
