Well I got in a Hart Steel razor a couple of weeks ago and just could not like the black resin scales that came on it.....so I sent it to Max Sprecher for a set of tortoise shell scales and a hone. Well it arrived today and I totally like the looks now, so I figured I would share it with everyone here at the Nook! I have to say Max can put one heck of an edge on a straight....Biggrin

If anyone knows how to make some beautiful scales, it's Max. Very nice, indeed.

Richard, that is so true!! I have had Max do a couple so far and have been very happy with his work. I sure was sad that I missed out on that straight you sold from Max the other day......Biggrin

After your posting of these beautiful scales, I decided to send him a 7/8 Helje with cheap looking plastic scales for new ones. I can't wait to get it back, and am thinking of sending him several razors with great blades but mediocre scales.

That is what I have been doing with some of my straights just to give them a better look. Max does a fantastic job and it does not take him very long to get your razor back to you!
