    Default 24 K Gold Scales for straight razors

    I made 5 sets of these the other day,2 are already on members razors,but someone asked me to post some pictures so here they are.The swirl is mixed 24K gold powder,very finely milled(like talcum powder) I add it to the base casting,and swirle it.This is very little amount of gold,maybe a few cents only.These are not finished,but will fit any size razor up to 9/8.They will look better when they are fit,and finish polished,they are also much prettier in person.The materials are also impervious to most solvents and disenfectants so you can soak your razors in Clippercide overnight to disenfect,and prevent rust,and it will not damage the scales like it will bone,or wood .Best Regards GAry

    That's really cool. Every thought of doing different color/metal combinations as well?
