My old Sheffield returned form it's short trip to the Doc. Alfredo did a great job modifying the original horn scales. The scales extended too far into the tang when opened. He also replaced the brass rivets with small silver domed rivets. The wedge was black, maybe plastic? It needed some contrast and Alfredo recommended white bone. It came out stunning. In person you can see the subtle grain of the natural bone. Needless to say I couldn't be happier with the results. 

Before- Notice distance from pivot to end of scales

Alfredo did a great job for you Gabe.  Did you have him hone the blade?

It had a really nice edge when it came to me. He said he might freshen up the edge if he had time. Not sure if he did.

It is tough to beat. The weight, size and grind make it an incredible shaver. Then add horn scales, that's a great combination.

Yes...it just felt 100% right to me in appearance, in the hand, and on the face!
