    Default Amazing scales!!!!!!! (but alas, no shipping to USA)

    I have never seen these scales before. I am typically NOT into celluloid decorated scales but these are VERY cool!

    Antikes Geschnitztes Bein Rasiermesser , Mit Hetzjagdszenen , um 1850 | eBay

    Of course the razor itself is GARBAGE but wouldn't these look great on just about any blade that would fit?????

    That's the St. Hubertus pattern. The emblems on the back scale all relate in some way to his legend/myth. Very attractive, and one of the celluloids I've always admired. Not common by any means, but if you do your time on online auction sites, you'll see a handful of them come up for sale.

    I don't know what the market is like now, but in the past those decorated scale collectors would go really high $ on something like that regardless of the condition of the blade.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
