It looks like ebony scales? I know TZ had some problems with the original scales on the first batch (including mine) but I got a replacement set of scales from him in no time flat (and he was a first-rate gent to deal with throughout.)
I seem to recall that production of these razors was slower than expected because Tim's wife ran into some health problems ... so hopefully the arrival of the second batch is a sign that Mrs.Z is in better health!
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
