Crown & Sword with macassar ebony scales

Discussion in 'General Straight Razor Talk' started by Buddel, Apr 6, 2008.

  1. At this beautifol Crown & Sword Razor from Ern the original plastic scale was broken. So I made new scales, from macassar ebony. The wood is oiled and polished. All pins are adjustable an the wedge is from tin/vulcanfibre.

  2. That is a BEUTY:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
     
  3. those scales are fantastic!
     
  4. Nice how the scales imitate the maker's mark. :thumbup1:
     
  5. Very nice!
     
  6. :a47: unbelievable!
     
  7. I love how you carried the scimitar from the sword & crown into the scales.
    Well done.
    It's a razor I'd be proud to use.
     
  8. I want to start making scales AFTER iI can resurrect a razor from neglect.
    What was the thought behind using the third pin?
    Is it top do with weight of blade
    shape of scales I think the three pin would strengthen the scales
    OR did you just carry over the three pin from the original?
    ????
     
  9. In this case, the third pin is only a aesthetic gimmick. Here I used a wedge, that is not really a wedge. I wanted, that the blade go deep in the scales. So I took a wider wedge than in other cases. When you use a smaler one, with a real wedge form, the third pin expand the scales for the shank. Depends from the scales and the blade. Here it was not really necessary.

    @all: Thank you for the compliments.
