I have noticed that it is difficult to find brand new str8 razors. In my home town I was only able to find 2. I know DOVO still makes them but it seems that when some place runs out of them it isn't always easy to order another one.
What companys still make str8 razors and are their production numbers really that small? Is it the norm to buy str8 razors at flea markets and then have them restored. It appears that locally that's what I might have to do.
Last of all if I must buy one of the flea market older str8s what measures should I take to make sure that the blade s free from any potentially harmful germs and bacteria from the "unknown" previous owner, prior to using for shaving.
Thank you in advance for any info.
