¡REQUIRES DRILLING! These Dovo Spanish Oak straight razor replacement scales, which are appropriate for most 6/8″ razors, came from the (discontinued) 119 Encina design. Dovo shaped/polished/assembled them by hand in Solingen, Germany. The oak blanks aged for months, to allow resistance to temperature/pressure/humidity variances, before cutting. They’re not as inert as the micarta on Dovo’s en vogue, but good enough to earn a German reference of “noble wood” (referring to noble gas). Select your piece from images of our actual inventory!
Made to Fit the 6/8 Modern Standard Razor Dimensions
Current production size 6/8 German razors will fit. To be sure of your particular razor as there are so many thousands of brands, measure the distance from your razor’s pivot pin hole to the furthest point away on the cutting edge. Your razor should have a measurement <118mm at this spot.
Wedge Pre-Installed & Built for Modern 6/8 Thickness
Furthermore, these Dovo oak replacement scales for straight razors are built with a wedge at the non-pivot pin already installed. The wedge angle is based on the presumption of the pivot pin needing ~4.2-4.4mm of space as on a current German 6/8″. A range of razors will fit, depending upon their tang girth and your skill. If your tang’s >4.2mm at the hole it may be a tight fit or a creaky install. Conversely, if the tang’s <4.3mm, you may have a challenge getting the scales extra tight or need thicker washers.
Breadth of Scale Built for 6/8, Not 5/8
The maximum width across these scales near the non-pivot pin area is 18.7mm.
Includes All Required Hardware!
You’ll get one ‘pin and rosette’ and 2 washers with your Dovo replacement straight razor scales. The scales are already given their hand-fitted-and-sanded wedge/pinning for the non-pivot end. DRILLING IS REQUIRED
