Here too this blade came in sans scales. The razor was in very nice shape but again I had to do my thing pushing it just a bit further. I love these big W&Bs.
For the scales I happen to have a duplicate original razor to this one so I used it to make a set of scales matching the thickness over their length, shape, even matching the radius of the surface.
The kicker in my opinion was the challenge of duplicating the much beloved triple stack washers W&B is famous for. I couldn't settle on just piling up some washers and calling them triple stacks so I made these hoping I came out close. I'm pretty happy with them.
I also had on hand an original wedge for these scales so in it went. Fit like a glove. Cool!
I even like the reflection of my lamp in the scales showing very little distortion.That's an original W&B washer in the pliers against my rendition of them in the scales/pinning on this razor. Doesn't take much to make me happy.

It doesn't take much to make you happy? That absolutely gorgeous razor qualifies as "much" in my book. The washers really add some "awesome."

Thanks guys for your comments.
At times I do think razors out weigh my full time carving work! I do want to build them as well but the restorations just keep piling up. Can't even work on my own.

But now that this last job, 1,300+ feet of hand carved molding , over 33,000 leaves, I've carved is now done maybe I can find some time to peruse it.
