Wow, some beauties out there!
That smiling R. Saito / Kikuboshi is a killer How do you hone that???
There is a part of me that knows that it's going to be Japanese razors that lure me into straight shaving. Thanks to everybody for sharing such wonderful photos.

I only got one. I have to admit, I must be a minority, I don't like the frameback razors and I'm not a huge fan of this one. It's a very nice razor and Telly facilitated the transaction (thanks again). I used it a few times but I'm still debating if I shouldn't leave it on a shelf for a few weeks and try again or just sell it.
I like the look but I think I have something for French, British and German razors...

Telly - among the razors you show, I recognize some you have sold. Which have you kept for yourself?
Excellent thread, Henry. Keep those photo's coming!
My small japanese collection.
This one I bought from a japanese ebay-seller, but I don't know if it's really a japanese blade.
The Tosuke is mine, the Kanetake I had just for sharpening here.
The KAI Captain Excelia. It's not really a straight, but I love that thing, because it's always shaveready, needs no honing or stropping. A great razor.
Here is my latest acquisition, a Fon Golden Star Deluxe. Believe it or not, SRAD has been on the wane here for a while.
How does the shave with the Golden Star rate to others?
