    Default Straight Razor display case

    Does anyone know where one can buy a display case that is well ventilated and hold atleast 10 straights? I need something that I can keep in my bathroom that will organize my shavers in an attractive and convienient way. Any ideas guys??? Thanks!

    I may be over protective, but my razor of the day and strop only come into the bathroom for stropping and leave until after my shower. It seems to me if you have to keep them there you would want a sealed container with something to absorb moisture and control humidity. You might find a small kitchen or bathroom cabinet with glass doors at the big box stores, or a local cabinet shop. A golden rod like they use in gun safes may give you the protection you need.

    I have lots of windows on my bathroom. Usually stays pretty dry in there. I always dry off my razors thoroughly after using them. I never really considered the possibility of my razors getting seriously damaged in this environment. Perhaps I should be equally cautious as you.

    I use my grandmothers old spoon display case just outside the bathroom. Holds 10 blades and has cubbies for soaps and such...

    Amazing...Quite crafty. Guess if I can't find a finished product I'll have to use a little ingenuity as well. What do you think about using this? I found it on eBay for $7 so far. I could make use of the shelve to hold my shave soap and mug/ badger brush.... Just need to figure out a way to hang the razors.

    A few of us have made display cases in various ways.You don't want it ventilated,however.You want it to seal out as much moisture as possible if it's going to be in the bathroom.I adapted a pin display case and I keep this in the bathroom but I also oil my blades to be safe.No problems for over a year.This is the vendor:
