I have tried to clean some of my projects. Yesterday I put it into solution of barbicide and today when I took them out I have found that some of the scales which I believe were horn on old Rogers and Kayes blades warped, swelled up in places, got strange shiny/ lusture like colour and in places it looks like when you stripping old varnish from wood. I will try tomorrow to take some pictures.
Did anybody experienced something like this? Any advice about it? Thank you.
