i understand what you mean..
Rodgers rescale coming in from @doc226 - patterned black horn. Gotta love a nice Joseph Rodgers.
Fitting scales for that razor Steve... beautiful.
Hey guys and gals I'm pretty sure I'm in the wrong thread and I apologize but I need some advice. I finally got my honing ability to the point where I can shave proudly and comfortably!! But I have a new problem, replacing scales! I need help and advice and a tool list. I want to restore the 10 or so SR I have but so far all I can work on is the blades.
Without breaking the bank what tool should I get to remove the old scales and attach new ones? Please any and all advice would be extremely helpful and I promise I will post a before and after picture of my first full on restoration
Here is a Very Clear,,No Nonsense Video Demonstration & Tools Needed to Peen & Un Peen SR Scales by Jamie from Wales in the UK..
Billy you sweet Scottish scoundrel thank you very much I shall watch this video again and again. I shall also dedicate my first full restoration, not to myself or my wife but to the Scottish Ninja
Och Aye the Noo..
Now for my next inquiry....before I check Ebay and Etsy does anyone have any of the hardware necessary for pining scales they'd be willing to donate for my first full on restoration?? I will forever be in your debt
All I have is “Tiger” for this one. I have seen Tiger razors as a Lauterjung precursor to Puma, but this tiger looks slightly different.
Close up of the mark:
Maybe, maybe not, but feels good in hand.
Also got my hands on another 14, a Mann & Federlein. A little over 7/8, not the greatest of scales, but should be a nice addition to the 14 team.
Very nice additions...
I managed to find a decent pinning kit on Ebay for fairly cheap (I think) it's enough of what I need to scale two straight razors. I also got a set of really nice looking scales that are black with thin blue pinstripes. Can't wait to put them on my Wade and Butcher that I just honed and polished.
Waiting on this Rather Beautiful Very Rare Otto Fromm 50 Redhead Solingen 7/8th + Barbers Notch..Arriving from Germany..I Have Never Seen One of these Razors this Size Never Mind in this Kinda Condition..Its a Rare Bird for Sure..Its Shave Ready & Been Finished on a 20k Suehiro Gokumyo Stone..
Now the Wait..
Absolutely stunning Fromm! Congrats.
Tom..It Cost Me a Few Dollars More But Hey..Its a Rare Bird & I Just Could Not Resist it..One of those Once in a Lifetime Jobs Maybe..
I’ve never regretted buying a razor, but I’ve regretted selling many. You’ll be happy with this one in your collection for a long time.
That Redhead got some sweet curves.
Looking Forward to Shaving with it..
This 8/8 coming in from Max Sprecher in a couple of days, the orange scales are University of Tennessee colors.
