As far as JMS's post about spine wear I can't really see it myself and it's quite possible that the toe end was made slightly rounded. I believe my Fila has the same type of rounding.
    Since I have never owned one, you might be right, but I would swear to the hone wear on the spine! But that's only judging by the picture!

    I'll see about digging mine out this evening and and I'll have a look at it but I'm pretty near certain that round toe is the way it's designed.

    As far as I can tell, the blade has not been touched.

    If I were to keep the razor, how could I go about putting custom scales on it, and how expensive would it be?

    This guy sells fillys regularly and should not be considered ignorant. And if you buy mint/NOS, that is exactly what you should get. Was the box/packaging damaged , if not shame on him!

    Nothing in the packaging was damaged, the razor box showed no sign of crushing. I just opened everything and found the crack. The area with the crack was also avoided in the pictures he displayed on ebay.

    Update:

    He offered to send me another one in exchange for the one I recieved. Either the same model (#12) or the #13.
    Any recommendations?

    Thanks again everyone who has offered me advice!

    V/R,
    Scott

    Mine's a #12 and the rounded toe is the way it's designed. I have yet to hone and shave with it but Filarmonicas are highly regarded around here. As to the choice between the #12 or #13 I would assume there's a difference in size so you'll want to decide if the one you now have is the size you want. The #12 is about 9/16-5/8 but has a fairly heavy spine so should be a good choice as an all around shaver. I don't know the size or grind of the #13 so I can't comment but I'm sure somebody else here has one and can provide you with info on it.

    Thanks so much for the help, advice, and other information!

    Hopefully the exchange for the new razor will go smoothly.

    I find it odd that the seller resorted to claiming shipping damage as if that somehow reduced his obligation. Unless the package is trashed, any damage to the contents should still be the responsibility of the seller as he/she was the one who packed it.

    I have had a few people make this bogus claim of shipping damage for non-razors: a clock that was missing pieces (somehow they made it outside of the box), a trumpet mouthpiece that was bent (the seller admitted he knew about it but figured it wouldn't cost much to fix it), and a modem filled with shredded paper (though that's what he packed it in, he claimed that it was shaking during shipping that caused the bits of paper to get inside--it had nothing to do with the fact he didn't put it in a plastic bag before surrounding it with the paper bits). Unfortunately there are some unscrupulous sellers who resort to claims of shipping damage when they called out on their crap.

    End of my rant. Lucky for you, your seller stepped up to the plate and is willing to make it right. That is a nice thing to find on ebay.
