    Default Satinedge #2

    I got my 2nd Satinedge yesterday. I bought it thinking I was going to have to replace the scales and rub on it for a week straight. I polished it up a little and here it is.

    Now I am wondering how I got it so cheap. The 1 question I have is, are these scales supposed to be this color ? My last 1 was clear and I have always thought that yellow meant they were going bad. These are as transparent as my other one except for the color. They have some warping so I have to be careful when closing and the toe hits the spacer on the way in if I don't pull back some. The blade is almost perfect with no pits or anything. I stropped it and it shaved fine this morning. I was fully prepared to change out these scales but I'm not sure I have to now that I got it in my hand.

    Looks identical to the one i picked up after i cleaned it, and the same issues. I just gave it a strop and shaved with it, great shave. As to whether the scales should be that color, not sure, i am keeping a close eye out for any sign of cell rot. Bottom line is mine was a bargain too, and three months on, still very happy with the way it performs, sometimes you just get lucky.

    leave it as is for now, but inspect it frequently. at the first little measle speck, replace them.

    Will look at it every 7th day. :<0)
    Right now I am thinking of making some in my spare time. (should be a year from now) I have an extra set of scales with nice inlays I got for a buck (a cell rot special). Somewhere I saw some frosted white ice scale material . It was a white translucent with a hint of blue. Won't look original but maybe better in my opinion.
