    Default Henckels Newer 7/8 & 8/8 Friodur - Rescales

    Going on a trip in the "Way Back Machine"

    There was a time where replacing the unmatched misfit plastic Chinese scales on these was a weekly occurrence

    3rd Generation Henckels Friodur 7/8 size

    Scales are Cocobolo @ at sweet .105" thick
    Wedge is Amber Recon Stone @.065" at the end
    Pins and Washers are Solid Brass
    Used a Hand Rubbed Teak Oil Finish followed by Ren Wax

    I have not seen one with a scalloped spine for some time. The scales look great. Is that a brass bead of some sort that you used for the spacer on the middle pin?
    It's not what you know, it's who you take fishing!

    Well I'm pretty sure it is as 'mine/my son's' has one that's at least similar. I can imagine Glen out at a arts and craft show and being the only male there!

    Anyway I found it a nice touch!

    Impeccable job as usual Glen.
    There's just something about cocobolo wood that does it for me. I love the stuff! I'm sure that Roy will be thrilled with the results. The razor, with its scalloped spine, is a beautiful blast from the past!

    Now...the Wayback machine : Which one of you guys is Sherman and which one is Mr. Peabody??

    Sorry Peter, I should have let all know that Glen did my son's 8/8 Friodur several years ago.

    Fantastic looking job Glen. It brings back memories of the one I had, loved it and I was sad to have sold it the day after it was gone. I'll find another and send it your way!
