Hennes makeover

Gents..no funny stuff this time:)

This is a restore of a Hennes (Peter Hennes) Haan Solingen.

The blade could need some more polishing but I dont want to loose that pretty etching,so this must do.

Scales are made of oiled mahogany. The wedge is from another razor and fitted to this one.
Actually the scales went on fire - they were oiled- as the Dremel was used to fit the plastic wedge, too high RPM`s caused the plastic to catch fire and then the scales ;-)

respones would be very welcome and I`dd be sure to be offended by any harsh words(Matt):lol:

Regards gents.

Looks like a very fine job, Torben.

Personally, using Mahogany, I would fill the pores before finishing it. Mahogany's beauty and depth really stands out when you apply a

Kind regards,

As for the oil...it seem to soak up all you give it! Guess a filler would be better but yet I have no experince with that..next time!

Mmmm, beautiful piece of equipment! :thumbup: The pinning is really something with character. And a fabulous razor, too! Indeed, scales are probably slimmer than the original ones and I actually think that they knew what they did. :D IMO they lack just a little balance with this wide blade, if the scales were a tad wider at the point area, it'd be perfect IMO. Just 3mm maybe would be enough. But as we know it's all a matter of personal taste. :)

It's just me, meet the perfectionist. :)

regards,
Matt

PS. And the wedge! It's perfect and so stylish!

Matis..What I was trying to say, was that the scales are slightly _thinner_ than the originals :) The shape was copied off the original. Pardon my lousy english.

I think its was a cheap razor, the scales were pretty cheap looking but it shaves very well indeed.
