And the result after a progression of sanding and some metal polish.
Some pitting and sanding marks are still there but I don’t mind that. The blade may show its age a bit.
Next up is to come up with some scales...

@Kitchen
my advice would be to see if the razor will hold an edge before you put a lot of effort in making scales
and also when you eventually make the scales to make sure the balance is righT

here is my latest scale project for a GB
