    Glen's willing to have a go at straightening her out - but in his words, Duck scales are "the most beautiful, awesome, FRAGILE scales out there, they break if you look at them crosseyed", so here's to hoping it goes well! A few more pictures:

    See that diagonal band of spots on the spine? And how it matches perfectly with the warped scales? I just noticed that this morning - when I wrapped a rubber band around that exact spot to prepare it for shipping!

    ...I am never, ever going to put another rubber band around that part of a straight razor again. Maybe around the middle pin, to travel, if I don't have a case - but only on a cheap razor.
