Thread: Vintage Straight Razors

  1. Default Vintage Straight Razors

    Hey guys,

    I received some straight razors from my grandfather. He's was a barber, shaving since 1940 (I think). I'm not a big fan of traditional straight razors. I use a feather straight for the convenience, so I'm planning to sell these razors. Can anyone tell me whats a good asking price? I'll sell them as one complete set. They're not in the best of shape, but I'm guessing they can be restored. I'll prob put them on ebay.

    Here's the link.

    not sure on pricing but that case ace looks really nice.
    Are you sure you don't want to keep at lease one and give it a try?

    I'll echo what Bleu said. Why not hone 'em up and remember Gramps every day?

    +1.


    You won't get rich off the sale, but to have a collection from a relative is priceless IMO. I'll hone one up for you if you want, just pay for return shipping.
