    Cool 5/8 Boker Spanish Point in Aquamarine scales

    My personal favorite color of acrylic, Aquamarine... I really tried to capture the 3D effect that is has in these pics..
    The Boker just needed a small bit of TLC on the steel, it came without scales to me so I used the flared wedge design I like so much.. The wedge is a translucent White acrylic Nickel Silver pins and bi-metal washers...
    The finish was 12000 grit Micromesh and Novus 1-2-3 polish...

    That is very cool. I'm with Catrent....very calming scales. That would be a good razor to take out after a hard day at work, and just look at it for a minute before using it!

    Hello, Glen:

    That Boker conjures up the image of a beautiful lady in a flowered dress lounging along the blue waters of a south seas paradise. Then she turns to you and utters a sultry, "Hello."

    Well done, my good man.

    Regards,

    Obie

    Beautiful razor Glen...Just beautiful!

    Can I send a razor to you and get it rescaled like that?
