    great job very clean looking & nice mods thinning the tail & the notch addition.
    I like the green scales too are they stained wood or something else.

    Yes, you are right. Scales are made of stained oak wood and CA finished.
    Pins and washers - stainless steel

    Very very nice!
    I really like the stained wood scales, especially the green ones.
    I have read that the steel used in Russian razors is very good quality but the fit and finish is rough.
    Your workmanship has totally altered them for the better.
