    Default Thiers Issard with Mother of Pearl scales

    Here is a 5/8 Thiers Issard in white Mother of Pearl, I just completed.

    Scales are white MOP shell sandwiched between Toxic Green G10 liners and clear epoxy resin. So it's G10, white epoxy resin, shell, clear epoxy resin. Scales shaped similar to the popular Thiers Issard style. White Ivory G10 wedge with domed stainless washers and Nickle Silver rod to hold together.

    My lightening isn't very good right now, so the images don't show the MOP very well, but here you go:







    More pics available here if wanted. Thanks for looking.

    Thank you, unknowingly you provided a complement that you may not be aware of. There are 3 MOP panels on each side. Cut to the direction of the MOP grain, and similar to angle of the scales triangle tips. I just went back to my pictures to find a shot that clearly shows the seams. Can't really find one. Maybe it's the poor lighting the pictures where taken in, but as I twirl this razor in my hand, they really are a nice tight seam.

    I've been busy on this, and another project, trying to finish in time to get them back home enough time before Christmas. Now that getting caught up, can start replying to emails from some good friends, lol. Happy Holidays all.

    Lovely work. The lines of the scales suite the blade beautifully when closed.
    And great work joining the MOP, cant see any joins from here.

    Very nicely done. MOP is one of my favorite scales. Really first class.
