I have here a 14KY Dueber Hunter in for service.

Normally I buff and clean the cases as this is for a retail client, NOT a collector.

But there is this photo on the inside of the cover.

I remember many years ago reading these were made with egg white. These will come off if washed in water.

Does anybody know??

Thanks for the warning, Bryan. I thought that was the case.

Buff to me is different than polishing.

Polishing is the removal of all scratches and and making it "shiny".

Buffing is just making it "shiny". Only very light scratches are removed.

Have to do this Jon, retail customers do not understand why their beloved PW does not look like it was "serviced"!!
