Love it. I am a straight razor guy myself. Just startedas fall, so I bought one with replaceable razors. Want to make sure I liked it be for Going pro and getting a permanent blade that needs maintained. Cost spent on shaving is now a few pennies a mounth.

I plan on getting amother one once all my sharks are gone. So 100 pack multiplied by 1.5 months per blade....

Make a good pair of strops from a seatbelt.
Barbers hone on ebay probably under $25 or abrasive strop treatment crayon $4.00..
One of my best shaving razors came from a flea market for $7.00*.

These's probaby even a qualified guy or two here who would help a BOTL out by honing a razor gratis.

*OK - so it was nasty, dirty, rusty, needed some sanding, polishing and a new edge but that was + nothing.

Alright, so I blame you for pushing me down another slope! I did some ebay watching and ended up with 2 vintage straight razors. From what I have read they where made between 1920 to 1940.





Picked them up for $10.50 each.

I don't have the nerve nor precision to attempt a straight razor shave. Nuts!!
