    Default Filarmonica 7/8 Custom Crushed Emerald Acrylic

    This is one of those Classic Shaving Flarmoinca Doble Temple's they were selling off...

    Interesting to say the least The razor came to me with a cracked scale at the center pin if you look closely at the pics you can see they stress they created when it came from the factory

    The razor didn't sit right in the scales which I noticed here in this pic you can see the bottom of the tang when the razor is closed...

    After I popped the pins i found out why, look at how they drilled the pivot hole...

    I built new scales around all the problems, this is some of the new Acrylics that I found in "Crushed Emerald" this place has like 40-50 different colors for me to mess with...

    All Brass hardware and a new Star shaped concho for the center pin, after I re-sized the spacer to these scales and no stress

    Funny how some of the top makers skimp on little things like drilling a straight hole in the tang Just a slight impasse for da G-Man tho.

    Nicely done ma man. Like the "Texas Star" 3rd pin too
    Those in the room who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand.
