When I got this set some time ago one of the razors scales were really trashed. I rescaled and cleaned up the one razor at that time. 
Now I broke it down again so I could "harmonize" it with the other 6 as I sanded and polished up their blades . I also had to make an additional 3 single scales and so this necessitated staining the new scales to blend in better with the other aged pieces .

Now I just need to gut the box , make new dividers and cover the interior with velvet and refinish the exterior. 

In the photos you'll see how the stock and the new scales are just too pure white to have looked good. 

Washerless brass pins and the lead wedges finished them off.

A brushed blade with polished spine,shaft ,tail is what they had originally . So I went with that. I like the combination. [Image: CuKAw7M.jpg][Image: 6C1Gjvf.jpg][Image: fdk9B7Z.jpg][Image: ICZqidy.jpg][Image: NeFE2Qm.jpg][Image: xoxmA2K.jpg][Image: kNlv14h.jpg]

Thank you guys.

What's interesting is Ive seen this box used by a number of companies. I'm sure some woodworking company at the time had a nice business supplying boxes for a number of companies.

Sort of like some of the scale makers.

Aleksey , that single razor was not part of this set. That's a different razor altogether . 

Entasis, as tempting as your offer sounds.,,,, ahhhh , they're in the black hole called my razor cabinet!

And thank you everyone yet again.

OTook the box apart. Gutted the interior. Made new dividers for the wedge and tail ends of the razors. Relined everything with Velvet. Stripped the finish and resprayed the box. 
Now everything is complete.[Image: EEuT619.jpg][Image: 5Ian40n.jpg][Image: lX0byWT.jpg][Image: e6kOYwC.jpg][Image: NGlI1eE.jpg][Image: MObzzc8.jpg][Image: BGTydFo.jpg][Image: I2COElC.jpg][Image: 933TEAR.jpg]
