    Default Friodur rescale

    Got this Friodur in NOS condition but with badly warped scales.
    I made a new set from midnight blue pearlescent acrylic with overlay transfer.
    The wedge is black acrylic. I used brass pins and stainless washers to put it all together.

    Great job. How did you remove the inlay from the old scales

    I didn't know you could remove the parts from the scales. When you soak them do they just slide off and you glue them back to the new scales?

    Very nicely done, Stefan. I think the scales are a perfect match for that razor.
