    The sellers I will go back to are the one's who pick out a quality product for me, not an imperfect one and then when I let them know of the condition it arrived in they say they were fully aware and sent it that way! As a little postscript I've never had any problems with SRD.

    Right. It looks like a cosmetic issue, but all the same it is an issue if you make it one. I would think you have reason enough to ask for exchange since it isn't something that is incorporated into the design of the razor, it is a fault. It doesn't have to be your fault though.
    My own IMoP has the third pin and sleeve for rigidity...And a different gold wash pattern. I don't keep up with all Dovo models so maybe they bring out a few different ones with the same scales these days. Or maybe mine is a discontinued line, who knows?! Mine doesn't have the issue yours does though.

    If it was me I'd have the vendor replace it. You've paid good money for a tool you should enjoy for decades, but it's not right. That's decades of not-rightness that you shouldn't have to put up with.

    In turn, the vendor should be able to get a refund from the factory. That one should never have been shipped.

    Thanks for all your opinions and recomendations.

    I contacted SRD and they said to send it back for an exchange, no problem. I'll be sending it back today.

    Thanks again!

    I don't buy any new straights, if it wasn't made before 1891 I don't want it.

    From the picture I would guess that the pin (one or both) is bent causing the scale to deform a little. The scales look like plastic and it would not take much to cause them to flex in that way.

    You will see scales, both new and old, with some type of manufacturing defect. It's not limited to just the new ones.

    I would have thought nothing less of SRD to offer a replacement. They are, by all accounts, a good mob to do business with.

    The IMoP scales are a type of plastic material. One of my razors has the exact same scale material, but mine are straight and look very pretty .

    Glad to read that things look to be turning out well for the OP.
