    Default New scales for a 7 day set

    Actually, just for one of the razors...
    I bought this 7 days set of Joseph Rodgers for a great price because one set of scales was broken (and partly missing). The blades are all in terrific condition and look to have never been used! The other 6 scales are in good shape, they just needed cleaned and tightened. For the new scale I used ivory g10 to try to best match the original scales, and I think it turned out nice. Here is the new set of scales before I pinned it:

    Here is the whole set. As you can see, the days of the week are nice and clear! The Saturday one has the new scales, I matched them pretty well except it is a touch short. When it is laid out with its friends I bet you can't tell which one is the g10


    Thanks for letting me share!

    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.
