    Why do scales warp


    I shaved with my Dovo Special tortoise this morning, and was surprised to see that the scales have a slight warp. I bought this new about a year ago. Never got any water on the scales, and the blade, like all my other razors, carefully dried and oiled after use. Storage is no different either, in wood, boxes, with bags of silica thrown in.

    I have vintage razors that are 100, and a few that are close to 200 years old, still with unwarped original scales.

    Am I missing anything here? Any particular scale materials more prone to warping (ecept stell wapi scales of course)? Are the newer plastic scales more prone as well? Any other precautions to minimize warping?

    You may be "splitting hairs" here (pun intended lol). As others have said, it would be difficult to tell any appreciable, quantifiable difference

    My 10 or so razors

    Watch the water too, if it isn’t smoothly going up over the bevel there’s still work to be done, should be consistent from heel to toe. Any
