    Default Vintage Hart Razor re-scale in Emerald Acrylic

    This is a vintage Hart Razor out of Solingen I know I got a kick out of it too

    Our very own "Sailinblues" gave me several choices for colors but his first choice was green with a yellow wedge....

    So I had some Crushed Emerald and some Crushed Gold acrylics right there on the bench and this is what I came up with....all brass hardware.. The acrylic was polished out with Micro-mesh to 12000 grit and then followed with the Novus 1-2-3 polish system...

    Wow, those are striking scales. The green/yellow wedge really pops! I like the way the scales seem solid without being bulky or too big. Great work as always.

    I like the color of those scales too. Nice contrast with the yellow wedge.

    A vintage Hart razor worthy of a G re-scale.

    Those are some mighty nice looking scales Glen. I like the shape of them at the bottom. Funny that it is a Hart razor made in Solingen. No relation to the American company I assume.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Great looking design and choice of colors. Yellow wedge really pops on those scales.

    Good looking,both scales and blade. You always get a nice hefty look to your acrylic scales that I like so I'd like to ask how thick you cut your blanks?

    I need to do a guide on how to do it...You have to still have thin material but you want to keep that rounded shape... I'll do an Illustrated guide this coming weekend
