    Default Mastro Livi Damascus -Pearl Acrylic Re-scale

    This was a 7/8 Spanish Point Mastro Livi Damascus wrapped in the standard Cocobolo one piece scales....

    The razor came to me last year with some edge problems, I had to straighten out some very bad hone wear..The size is now 6/8+ the former owner sold this one to me last week....I just put it in some new White Pearlized Acrylic scales...

    I had to do some modification to get the effects I wanted, Livi uses 1/8 pins on his razors so I slipped in a brass tube to take up the slop going to 1/16 pins... I took it to a 3 pin design and used a square 1/8 brass tube for the center pin spacer, giving it a slightly different look ( I could not get a pic to come out)...
    The hardware is all two-tone I used NiAg rod with brass and SS washers to give it a multi-layered and multi-colored look on the pins...
    This one is rather subtle with plain white scales that have just a flash of pearl when you look close.... The wedge is blue acrylic with white threads in it...
    I think I will be keeping this puppy in the rotation for quite some time...

    making scales for a Livi that go with the blade has got to be a challenge in itself without all the other problems, you pulled it off perfectly wow

    All of you restores are very well done but I think this one is my new favorite of those you restored. Very classy looking and well balanced appearance.

    Beautiful job as always Glen! Here's a "Thumbs-Up"

    I think that the pearlized acrylics are the closest things out nowdays to the celluloid "cracked ice" look. Have you been able to find that material in yellow?
