I was honing up my henckels 401 today and thought "man, these plain cream scales just suck" and finished honing the razor. 4 hours later as I got done shaving I walked out of my bedroom and did a double take. I have 6-7 cigar boxes I took from home before I moved to Terre Haute for college. I am going to try and make so scales out of these! Im using a red stained Camacho box, and a hoyo de monterrey dark sumatra box that has a cool shield cut into it. Will post pics and updates after I sleep on it and hammer out the details. Also all I have to work with is a dremel, maybe I can use the machine shop at college.
