    Thaeris, Is this your personal collection?
    Nice razors! I really like the travel case in the 5th picture.

    Except the pieces I sold, yes it is !

    I'm also really keen on my travel case, which contains stuffs to shave, write, paint and even eat !

    And I love the beauty of the silver plated "lids" (not sure about the word ?)







    It's a real pleasure to shave outside with one of those travel set.

    I've got a second one I want to sell / trade by the way.

    Using an old shavette blade found on the market this morning, adjusting it on the Jeanningros' brothers, I've restored the second "disposable" razor of my pair.



    Deep cleaning of the inside, polishing inside / outside with green paste. Finished !
