Stanley No.199 - fully restored

The Stanley No.199 - fully restored and finished. I have to say that I'm very impressed with the finished knife, for more information, see this earlier post showing the knife prior to restoration.

The knife has been cleaned, polished and painted with a blue wash prior to being waxed and finished.

A £1.00 find at The Malvern Flea Market has been transformed into this beautiful working knife with nothing more than elbow grease and clear wax. I'm very happy with this restoration.

That came out very well. I like the blue; was that the original colour of the handle?

"Was that the original colour of the handle?"

No - the original colour was aluminium, the natural colour of the metal handle.
