    Default Hobo Art Scales?

    Yes, I actually paid money money for this; not much money, you understand, but I wanted that blade bad.... someday I'll find I'll find one of the fancy humpback Worths like ChrisL's,.

    Truth is though, you don't see scales like this everyday. That's probably a good thing.
    Don't get hung up on hanging hairs.

    I kind of like the scales. I am a big fan of hobo and tramp art. Those scales have me thinking, maybe I need to butcher an old cigar box to make some similar scales.

    For one thing, they're almost as sharp as the razor.

    I got to see this razor up close and personal. The person that created these scales was very creative. They are functional and light. They are a little on the sharp side though.
