Product Description

THESE SCALES ARE NOT PRE-DRILLED!!

These factory-made black plastic scales will accept blades up to 6/8″, and grinds ranging from half hollow to full hollow.  I would not recommend a very heavy grind razor be pinned into these scales – it will stick out pretty far.  Although the “wedge” on these scales isn’t very “wedgie”, the scales are at least functional.  For the price, they aren’t so bad.  A cheap alternative to custom scales to get your old razors going again.

These scales are not drilled at the pivot end.  Does not include pins or washers – pinning kits are available for sale separately.

These scales will accept blades up to 4.5″ from pivot hole to tip of blade.   if your razor is longer than that, send me an e-mail, there is a chance I can find one that has a smaller wedge (they vary slightly from the factory, some wedges are longer than others, allowing for slightly longer blades).  Or, you could check out some of the other replacement scales I have available.

    :

    I have used vintage razors on and off for 45 years. One of them had broken, the scales having grown brittle with age, and had therefore laid unused for years. Then I found Maggard Razors and this product. I frankly opted for the black scales because I wasn’t sure I could successfully pin a replacement and didn’t want to spend more than was necessary. After viewing a couple of videos on-line, I carefully and patiently went through the steps of replacing the scales, and to my delight, my old razor had new scales. This product exceeded expectations and I am very pleased. I’m considering doing another and will certainly go for one of the nicer choices if I do. I’m glad I can obtain the supplies I need here.

    These scales are nothing fancy, but the quality is there. These scales brought life back to my old Wade and Butcher. Except for tools (drill, cut off wheel), this kit came with everything I needed.

    I collect and restore old straight razors, These are the closest match I have seen to replace many original scales. All the others have been ridiculously oversized or very cheaply made ( though not cheap to buy! ).
