Here we have a pair of Ebony and high impact white acrylic scales i finished a while back, waiting for the right blade, i kept everything minimalistic and modern with clean angular lines, will finish wihtout using a back pin only a single pivot pin using nickel silver pin, and stainless steel washers, the blade must be a square point i just dont see any other shape blade fitting into the scales.

Jamie, great job!

I know who to ask for a *mach* fret-job on custom scales, if I ever get into straights Biggrin

seriously, you could do it... you already have a nice piece of ebony, all you need is some nickel fret-wire... you could create something cool for a straigh-shaving guitar enthusiast!

Blessings

Thanks, strangely enough you should say that, over on TSR a UK based forum there is a restored razor by a guitar restorer from the UK, just thought i would give it a mention.

Those are really nice! If I decide to restore the W&B I found a couple days ago, some simple, well executed scales like those would look really nice.

Jamie,

If you lived in the states I would totally pester you to let me commission some scales from you Biggrin

Beautiful work sir. When you find the right blade, that hard work will be well worth it. Love the clean, understated elegance. Well done indeed

Cheers Nick, well i have come across a nice square point, and as it happens it's from your side of the pond an American 1930s Kinsfolk 6/8 made in New York, i believe these were made by the same people who make the classic American folding pocket knife Case.

That sounds like the perfect match. I'm looking forward to seeing the final product
