They are both gorgeous. that is what I'm wanting to be able to do. I hardly ever see japanese razors cheap and even more rare to see them without scales. Where are you finding them at.

TBH I find them all over but I do have to hunt, as you say they don't come up often and I was lucky to get these 2.

Hi Ian, Whats your go-to method for restoring original scales? 🙏🏻

Hi Ian, Whats your go-to method for restoring original scales? 🙏🏻
You can and I start by stripping the razor down, then look at it all but I look to see how scratched the scales are. If they have lightish scratches then I go with fine wet and dry, 1k and work up just to remove the scratches so if the scratches are deeper. Then I go to a lower grit wet and dry and work up the progression until I'm happy with them, once at that stage I use a product called NOVUS Plastic Polishes as I have all 3 and I recommend it.
