    You might be the only one. Nice razor. Any chance you have a close-up of the writing on it?

    I'll join the club with this one.

    Too bad I clumsy and broke the scales when unpinning it for polishing, bakelite is fragile! Well, that's what happens when you're green...Hopefully I've learned my lesson....!

    On the bright side, now I have to make new, custom scales for it!!
    Haven't test-shaved it yet, but longing for it!!

    Best regards

    You know, if you don't mind this suggestion... we could call this club The 4LeafClovers... after all, four leaf clovers are very desirable, rare and is the brand motif.

    Hope be granted entry into this prestigious Lucky Clover Club. This Morley girl is one fabulous shaver and her see-through dress makes her even more appealing.

    Well, since Clover normally has 3 leafs and the fourth leaf isn't normal, I'd say "Lucky Clovers" says it all.

    Thats just my 2 cents, though, maybe we ought to have a meeting and vote about it!!!

    By the way Smythe, lovely scales! As a matter of fact, I have decided to "borrow" the idea of using polycarbonate for scales, but I think I will use smoke-colored instead!

    Best regards

    Thanks for the compliment Clas, I donít know how experienced you are at scale-making, but you may read this thread for a few tips of how I made them.

    I cannot find Polycarbonate in any other color but transparent (though I am told it can be had in Bronze, I am unable to find a reliable source). Acrylic on the other hand can be had in all the colors of the rainbow, but the two are quite different.
    In my experience, Poly is flexible, tough and quite durable. Acrylic is harder, less flexible and almost as brittle as those original scales found on the Morley.

    If you find a source for colored polycarbonate please let me know, I would really appreciate it.

    Best.
    C.S.

    I have worked with smoke colored pc sheets, used to use them as protection on automatic assembly lines and maybe there is on my new work, will check it out tomorrow.

    I know there is clear pc, but, if I'm lucky, there will also be smokecolored.
    I'll be happy to send you some if there is, I'll stay in touch.

    BTW, sorry for highjacking the thread....
