View Full Version : Waxing horn scales
03-03-2008, 05:05 PM
I am the happy owner of a nice 6/8 W&B wedge with horn scales. Although it looks good, the scales could be shinier. I oiled them and planned to wax them, but I'm not sure of what to use. I've heard about "Renaissance wax", but I won't shell 30$ for the quantity I need for one razor. Would bee wax do the job? Or something else available locally?

Probably any waxed base product would work. Try Pledge!

... and I'll have a dedicated razor for my lemon scented shaving creams. :w00t:

Check in your local antique shop and pick up a bottle of Howard's Feed and Wax.It's made with beeswax and orange oil.Works great on horn scales.And,it only costs about 6 bucks for a big bottle.
