Can warped scales be fixed?
Made a stop at an antique mall on my way home Sat afternoon. I'm having some second thoughts on a razor I left behind. I guess it's reverse buyer's remorse. No pics because it was in a locked case and the attendant was rather impatient. Vintage TI 6/8 at least Le Dandy with nice etch and no rust or pitting. I passed on the $170 price tag because the scales were badly bowed. As a result someone had "forced" it closed by forcing the tip between the wedge and the scale. No apparent damage to the blade.
Can the scales be returned to their original shape? Does it have to be unpinned to do so? At the time it seemed like a lot to pay for a razor that needs work, but now I'm not as sure.
