As mentioned previously I recently purchased two very expensive ( ) straight razors from the same Polish eBay website that sells Wapis, called "Double Arrow". The price was $8.90(each) + shipping. Believe it or not, they became my favorite shavers! Now, for this price one really cannot expect great scales. That the blades are as good as they are, is already a miracle IMHO. So, I rescaled one of them this weekend. The scales are oak, stained in "Golden Oak" and treated with tung oil for a change. Thanks Damon for the hint!
