This Drew is the Friday razor from a set. The blade had the usual smattering of pitting and some blemishes that cleaned up well. The original Ivory scales were cracked and were a bit small as they allowed the blade to protrude out the bottom. I made new scales copying the shape of the old ones but making a few changes to correct this. Also , on request, I made the scales a bit heavier than is usual and this allowed me to radius the surface . Washerless brass pins and a black horn wedge completes the razor.[Image: AV7oQ2u.jpg][Image: pbvnxd7.jpg][Image: puvowOq.jpg][Image: PnouQCG.jpg][Image: jA1Dbvv.jpg][Image: Dr7o3El.jpg][Image: g1k3Cbl.jpg][Image: LpFbPWk.jpg]

Thank you gentlemen.

Doing this one inspired me to get cracking on my boxed 7 day set of Ivory   Drews.

Every time I see your work I want to reach through my screen, grab the razor and head for the shaving brush, shaving soap, and get started. Lovely restoration.

Ivory remains my preference in both brush handles and razor scales.  It just has a simple, classic elegance to it.
