Topic tags/keywords: straight razor knife scales

Hello,
I am looking for a good place to buy straight razor kits and knife kits. I want to make my own scales for both straight razors and for my knives. Can anyone recommend a good supplier?

Checked out straight razor on Amazon, but I’m pretty sure it’s not for shaving….LOL!

I have been giving some thought to trying assemble a knife. Here are a couple of web sites I found that look interesting, but I have not purchased anything from either of them.

I have purchased and used some of the knife blanks from Northcoastknives.com and was very happy with the quality and selection. The blanks come very sharp and pre-drilled for scale pins. I thought they were reasonably priced.
