W&B round point renewal


Well-Known Member
I finally got into the shop for a couple days and here is the result. I believe in "do no damage" but try to restore the item as close as possible to factory new. The original scales were trashed and I had to remove the rust from a couple of deep pits. I had to sleeve the pivot hole and since there was little hone wear I did a test hone and removed a couple little pits from the edge. The original grind marks are there and perhaps some later ones. I did pin with nickle-silver as I have had tighter pinning with those pins.
I have been experimenting with processes that were native to the 19th century. My polishing compound for the horn scales is "Bobbing" compound, a rottenstone/pumice in a tallow binder. The blade was done with Black Emery in a tallow binder.

This does not mean that I may "not" sometimes do a "bowling Ball" from time to time!!
