    This thread has reminded me that I am now of the "older" generation.

    I was recently informed that I am no longer middle age, but beyond. Grrrrrrr. I make very few scales from anything other than bone or horn. It’s just the way I roll.

    I prefer natural materials, especially exotic and/or rare/expensive natural materials. That said, some exotic materials are a loaded subject, with mixed feelings..
    Not interested in synthetics for vintage.
    BUT depending on the application like non-vintage gun stocks/handles, utility knives, etc... Then definitely yes on synthetic.

    Dear 32t and RezDog, wait, I am so far over the "I'm no longer middle age" that I'm looking for a new term to describe it. I think it must be based on the decade you would be inhabiting at the time.

    50's = Idling while moving
    60's = Idling while moving with an assist
    70's = The assist has an assist to keep you moving while idling
    80's = Spinning in place to gain extra inertia (that's me)
    90's and above = Where few men have gone before

    Rezdog, that's not a bad thing. I am well into geezerhood and still loving life and doing crazy feces. I buy stuff i shouldn't but don't get upset over it. I'm with most of those
    commenting, I like horn bone and wood.

    I do like the "classic" horn, bone and wood on the vintage razors.
    Now, I do have a couple newer custom razors and the Krinite does look good on them in my opinion.

    I suspect that most of us here are no longer in our 20's and early 30's.

    Several folks have posted that Kirinite looks good with the right product and I would agree with that.

    Ivory. Horn. Bone. I do not like wood. I haven’t seen wood to much as original. Plastics are alright but when it gets loud I’m not a fan. Tc

    There are some cool plastics. I’m not sure what razor I would put them on.
