    Finished this Filarmoica yesterday for my collection.
    I have never seen 1/4 hollow Filarmonca before, so this is a first. It is also of the more rare Medallion Taurino model.
    Decided to blue the tang, scales are bone, domed SS washers with brass pins.

    The etch is still there, the gold wash is gone.
    The condition it was (tiny rust spots all over), it had to be cleaned up more aggressively.

    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.
    When I restore for others, I do as they ask, then all kinds of tricks are in play.

    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?
