This razor was simply a break down and gentle cleaning. Polish the original scales and repin it.

Hi Mark

Is it just me, or do the (original) scales look a bit small for such a beefy blade?

Take care, Mike

They do to a point. With a blade like this with the heavy frameback much of it projects beyond the scales which are only really covering the blade itself.

Hi Mark

That frameback (spine?) goes look very chunky...

Do you think making the scales (artificially) taller and changing their overall shape would help balance out the blade more?

Take care, Mike

Edit: Fixed grammar.

Oh I'm sure if I was allowed to build new scales I'd certainly do something to make it more balanced looking. But in this case the client wanted the razor restored to keep it original.

Agree on the pins..

Curious if anyone does flush pins on straights, without washers. Don't think I've seen any that come to mind

You'll almost always find washerless pins on Ivory as well as MOP scales.
