One of my razors needs to be restored and to do that, obviously I should remove the scales. Well, one of the scales is cracked right at the fulcrum and I'm afraid I won't be able to put it back on when the restoration is done.
classicshaving.com has some Thiers Isard replacement scales, but this is not a Thiers Issard razor. I doubt it would make any difference, but I would like to find scales that closely resemble the originals. Does anyone know of a place that sells a variety of scales?
By the way, I don't know what company made it, but it's called "The Commander" and it was made in Germany. There isn't any good lighting around at the moment, so taking a photo is not an option. But someone else seems to be selling the same razor on ebay:

In the Gallery section of the Workshop forum you will find many pics of some the work being done...
Send a PM or an E-mail to a few of the Restorer's and see what we charge for scales that are custom fit to your razor, as buying replacement scales from the Internet is a hit or miss option on sizing....
