need info on where to buy scales?
Depends on the type, make, and size of the blade. Also the type of material you are interested in. Whatcha got? Whatcha interested in? Ebay has an assortment.. I just got a decent deal on two pair of wood blanks.
In the past, I have made my own scales from horn.
There’s some on eBay, etsy, Maggards razors, Larry at the whipped dog,or you can make them fairly easily out of wood or there’s a lot of other material options.Another place you can look is knife making material suppliers.
Some Scales to Consider..
they’re for an F.W. Engles 3/8” blade. I want to reuse the brass from the original scales.
It might be easier, and cheaper to find an FWE razor on ebay, that has a damaged blade, and swap out the scales. I have done that with several razors.
But, if you are intent on using the brass, I would probably buy Acrylic Blanks that are the color you want, then shape them. Or make your own out of resin. Both are very labor intensive.
