A very nice EK. I presume, early made. Thanks for showing.

Joe,

I can't recall ever having seen one by this outfit before..? I'd imagine some EK collectors
would love to own an example by this rare maker.

Can you tell us about your method to clean the oxidation that's so often found along the edges of Iron Crosses? Maybe a photo of the finished piece, too?

Many thanks! Smile

Bill

Bill, sorry to leave you hanging, all I do is rub the edges with a dry q-tip. where there is rust I use the q-tip with a little wax. Seals the rust from oxygen but is removable should someone down the line wish to do something different.
I do very little to items, I figure they earned there rust, dings and dents and tarnish from years beyond my existence. Smile

Regards, --dj--Joe
