    Does look Bone-ish, Ivory scales typically were not pinned with washers.

    They also look thick, have a picture of the scale thickness?

    If bone, carefully unpin, drill the pins with a mask and sand with wet and dry up to 2K.

    They could definitely be bone, im only guessing and just knowing its not plastic. They are extremely thin. Half as thin as any other razor scales i have for sure. I cant quite get a great picture of the width but this will have to do:

    I think i will drill them out, fill in that weird saw mark near the pivot and the chip at the wedge... sand lightly and wax. blade will get polished up and honed . I'll try and do that this week and post up some pics.

    If you have materials to make new pins and washers for the razor, file the head of the pins off before trying to drill them. If you are fortunate, the pin will drop out of the other side. if not carefully drill after making a flat on the pin. Bone is very brittle and will snap. Pin the razor with the blade open at the final pinning. I pinned one a bit too tightly and my son whipped it open and the pressure broke the scales at the pivot.

    That looks like bone to me! I agree with Richard. Put a couple layers of masking tape around the pin & filled the head off. It should come apart.

    anyone have some tips or links for restoring the damage in bone scales?

    Reading through all the stickies and info i didn't see anything specific to bone. I'll probably be fine with everything except i'm not sure how to fill the chips and that saw mark.

    How thick are the scales?you can easily sand them down to about .085 if you have enough material.

    They are the thinnest scales i've ever seen. We'll put it that way. lol probably less than 2mm on the pivot end.

    The chips are around the edges in a few spots. The saw mark is visible in the photo above. I will be able to sand out the scratched lettering with no problem.
