Cleaned, striped, frame and main gear re-painted. Paint color is matched to the original as close as possible.

Wood on all handles cleaned. Cocobolo sanded and polished. Three coats of BLO applied and thoroughly dried. The final finish is six layers of Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil Gunstock Finish Liquid. It is probably one of the best high quality finish for exotic hard wood.

The side handle is made in domestic hardwood, stained with red mahogany and finished with polyurethane. It is in the shape of mushroom and it is detachable.

All exposed parts were polished to high gloss.

Greased, oiled, tuned and checked. Great addition to your toolbox or collection. Lovely Tool!
