    Hello Chunky River! Your a little far south of me up here but we can always offer help. Enjoy and read all you can in the library. There really isn't a question that hasn't been asked. I see you collect but do you shave with them? Tc

    When you decide to try straight razor shaving, send the razor you intend to use to a professional and get it boned and ready the right way. You’ll be thankful you did

    I dabbled in reenacting for a while in the 1980's and there was ONE guy that always used a straight razor in camp to shave. I always wanted to try it.

    You will find this is mostly a shaving site, we do not like razors not being used.

    Ya send one back it to be honed and give it a whirl, after all that's what their for,must sitting in a box is just scrap metal. Tc

    Oh... sorry.
    So, no collectors here? Only users?
    I sure don't want to offend anyone.
