Nice work so far. Looking forward to seeing pics of the final result.

Good work, I can see a tiny bit of rouding off at the toe, did you use a sanding block? A hard block will really help get a pristine, smooth finish. Continue the grit progressions (220, 400, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000) and then use a sewn muslin wheel with green compound then white or red jewelers rouge for that "mile deep shine!" The final grits should be sanded in one direction only to avoid the swirls and "j-hook" marks that going back and forth creates. Be careful if using a dremel for buffing, it will cheate a lot of heat very quickly and if the steel turns brown or blue its toast in that area. Use the lowest speed possible, or if a bench buffer 1200-1800 rpm, but bench buffers are the most dangerous tool in th shop, so be careful!

That's a very nice razor. It is worth doing it right. Be careful. I have cut my hands up pretty good sanding razors. Funny how a "dull" blade will getcha.
