Well I thought I would share this with all my friends....several months ago I took the plunge into straights and have really been enjoying the journey thus far! Well I got another Ralf Aust 6/8 Spanish point in and the scales were cracked. I was kind of bummed, but I figured that I would send it off to my friend Max Sprecher to have some new scales put on....I have to say that I am very pleased and can't wait till May to get my Custom in from Max......but that is for another time....LOL! Anyway here it is......I also wish everyone a very Blessed Christmas!

Max does some insanely good scales. I have a custom of his in blue paua... those are so good looking! He's pricier than most, but his work is very sharp and meticulous.

Very nice. I have the same scales on a Max Sprecher razor. They sure do spruce up your Ralph Aust, a very fine razor. I'm eager to see you Max Sprecher when it arrives.

Thanks Richard....It will be about mid May before I get it, but I know it will be worth the wait.....7/8 Spanish point with B/W M3 Mokume Gane scales

The razor is great and the scales seem to fit the razor well.
Good choice!

I have those same scales on a Max Sprecher restoration of a Frederick Reynolds razor and the pic's don't do them justice.
One of my favorites.
Great upgrade for your RA.
