    Nice job. Sometimes the crazy coloured scales really work well, like in this case.

    My restorations have been with wood scales only; even though I'm happy, it's a real job doing it with the set up I have, in a condo etc.

    Buying ready-to-set G10 or Kirinite would be nice.
    I did restorations, my early years, in a one bedroom apartment. It is messy but doable.
    To me the issue with pre-cut scales has always been fit for the size of the razor and also the wedge.

    Super job and I love the fact it does not look like every other razor out there, the Mrs always tells me get something that has some flare to to it and not plain black or white scales.

    Exactly my thoughts, one of my least favorite colors is plain black. Pearlescent black or white is something I like as it gives some life to the scales.

    As I said above I will be making scales for mine in the same material, I really like the look.

    The scales are "Patriot" Kirinite with white acrylic wedge. I used brass pins with stainless washers to pin the razor together.
    Fine work Stefan hats off to you.

    I have put that kirinite color on several razors. I like the look and the colors really pop the razor visually.

    That particular kirinite is great because the least little sanding changes the whole complexion of colors. What was a white or red line becomes something else.

    Stefan did a good job.
