have you tryd micro mesh? buffering with compunds tends to eat up the etching very fast, using micromesh on high grits (6k up to 12k) is milder on the etching and you will be able to take of rust without to much damage on the etching and gold..

I like nice clean blades, the etch is there, the wash is not too important for me. I can't stand blades with pitting marks on them, and I do not think they look well with brand new custom shiny scales.

well ok but the value drop alot by doing that. anyways it looks like a good shaver and you did a good job on the scales for sure.

Thank you for the info on the micro meshing.
My fili was also pitted when I bought it and I had to take it to the buffer.
Etching is still there but the gold wash is gone.
I always felt bad about that.
Where do you get your micro mesh from?
