This razor was also an original restore/clean up. Broke it down taking care with the paper thin Ivory scales, polish everything up and repin it. Interesting enough the spine and shaft are brass. Very cool razor. It also has "Damascus Steel" etched on the blade along with a very intricate swirl design.

Hi Mark

Wow! those scales do look really thin, nice work on breaking them down, cleaning them up and putting them back together Thumbsup

That etching does look different, but it also looks good on the blade...

Take care, Mike

This is such a beautiful and unique blade for so many reasons. The etch, being a frameback, and not often do you find an inlay on ivory, the design on the blade as well as it being solid brass.
I'd love to have it for my collection.
