This razor came in without scales. The blade was in decent shape but showed some evidence of buffing on the script on the shaft. I fixed that while cleaning up the rest of the blade while preserving the scripts.
The scales are Black Horn. I kept to a traditional style and added a small bevel around the perimeter of the flat scales. I also matched the sweep of the scales to the sweep of the spine of the razor giving it a unified look.
I cut recesses into the insides of the scales to accept silver inserts which are located where the white faux ivory wedge is. Since I wanted the blade to fit very tight I added a small groove in the wedge for the blade to slide into.
NiAg pins and SS washers finished it up.

No sir, nary a one to my name. I'm looking at some vintage straights and might send some your way for a spit and polish.
