    Default C.V. Heljesttand N4 ~ Paualicious

    What we have here is a C.V. Heljestrand #4 in excellent condition.

    The scales consists of a top layer of green tinted acrylic, a center layer of real shell (Paua veneer) and black acrylic backing.

    True that 100% real Paua is hard to beat as any other 100% real natural material but it comes with a much higher price tag.

    That's why I just love these scales. It's affordable compared to the 100% real Paua, stunning, has lots of depth, contrasting reflections and colors. Pictures don't even do it justice really.

    It also balances out nicely with the C.V heljestrand which is an amazing shaver. It gives a nice heft to the overall weight. I will definitely be offering these in my line up as I personally think they're gorgeous for not being totally 100% real shell. It's also a change to the wooden scales we are so used to.

    Grind: 5/8 Full Hollow
    Total weight: 1.4 Oz
    Total cutting edge: 2.75 inches
    Scales: Green Paua Sheet (combination real Paua w/acrylic laminate)
    Pins: Nickel silver
    Washers: Nickel & Brass
    Wedge: Black acrylic

    Max, I don't know if I could shave with this one. I would be so happy to have it I wouldn't be able to stop jumping long enough to shave with it! Just love your work

    Bravo

    I was not expecting that as you are a mater of the wood scales.

    Beautiful and flowing those scales are awesome and they follow the lines of the blade so well !

    It's sold as a sheet and at 1/4 the price compared to 100% real Paua this is a no brainer. It's stunning in real for being what it is.
