    Nice scales engine...they look real sleek and suit the style of your razor well.

    I like the spine notch half way up, adds a nice line break visually.
    Nice choice of material and wedge shape for that blade.
    GJ bro.
    Thanks Mike!
    I could have gotten fancy with the wedge & made one out of brass but I already had one made from lead so I went with that.
    Thank you too Slasher!

    Thank you very much. I think they turned out good on there much better than the Thomas Turner Everlasting blade I have because of the blade geometry between the two.

    Mike, you're so right about that spine notch or whatever they call that. I have rarely seen that on the Greaves blades. You actually don't see that too much but every now & then one will pop up. Thanks buddy!

    Well done my friend.
    I love the look of this one ,I like to see vintage blades with a bit of patina to them as every time I use them they give me a connection with the past.
    Cheers Paul

It is ok for right now but I can take it back apart later & polish it. I have a regular buffer & don't know if it will work with some extra wheels & some greaseless compound but I'm thinking it would work for now until I build me a buffer which is what I would like to do. Roy, cudarunner, sent me his plans quite awhile back. I have then saved in a file. If I remember right, this scale material started out as black but as I got them thinner, they have a transparency to them. You can actually see the blade through them. I used to use Mother's to hand polish new scales but I found that Maas works a lot better & is more glossy even though Mother's does do a good job.
    Beautiful scales - I love the shape.
