I own a number of high end straights.  The problem is when I travel they can only be packed in my luggage and since I had one "lifted", decided to try a Feather Artist Club which I can take on a plane provided there is no blade affixed.  I like the razor but did not like the "flimsy" weight due to the plastic scales. Luckily, I found an artisan on Etsy who swapped out the plastic for carbon fiber scales and what a difference it made.  Here's an image of the finished product. PM if interested and I'd be happy to share the artisans name...thanks for looking.

I saw that in your SOTD today.  Very nice looking mod to the already nice Feather razor.

Thanks for sharing!

Those scales look sharp.  Very nice upgrade.

very nice. I had one done by UKRob a few years back and it also made a huge difference in handling.

Those scales are magnificent. If I ever plan to replace the plastic on my Feather Artist Club, that’s my choice. Does it come in any color other than black?
