In my oppinion excellent polishing job on the blade especially if we consider lots of etching that is preserved after the polishing. Which set up did you use to polish the blade?

That's amazing ! :blink:

I don't understand how you managed to keep the gold etching whilst using which basically are very low grid polishing compounds :confused: Enlighten us please !

Or did you use some decent gold paint ?
Whatever you did, it's looking great :thumbup:

The blade is not etched its engraved. I used gold paint.:) Then i rubbed down excess of paint with soft cloth.
I'm amazed myself how it turned out to be honest with you.

Very beautiful indeed my friend.I have used gold color in the past for other applications, not on razors.
You have to apply a coat of clear varnish on the gold, if not will be oxidized and darkened.
Best regards
