    Default My Bengall in Carved Bone

    Here's a later 15/16 Bengall from "North of the Border" right here in Texas! . I have nothing against good black Bakelite but after unpinning, decided upon something different! (happens a lot!) . I had these larger than normal carved bone scales in my pile and went with it using Barbur's inner collars and small silver domes with bronze pins for a different contrast. The black wedge gave way to a recycled one donated from another old Sheffield, shaped to fit.
    Lots of time invested on the super thin blade and doing the best I could on the scales. Turned out really tight, feels great in hand, and honed up with a teeny bevel. Shaves SUPER!
    Thanks for looking............Tom

    Nice job! The scales go well with that blade. I have a Bengall almost identical to that and I can confidently say you will not find too many better shavers!

    Very well done, the new scales dress it up a notch or two for sure.
