    "Restoration" at the pin is problematic, and really unless the scales are Matched to the razor not really worth the trouble

    I would just replace them


    To fix that is Possible, I don't want to mislead you, but those are simple Yellow Celluloid scales it is easier and better to replace them

    I'm with Glen.
    Replacing the scales is in order.

    Yep, trash those scales after you have made replacement scales

    A linen micarta would be nice

    I agree with the group. Pop them off and copy the shape. Then make new.
    It's just Sharpening, right?
