1960's till present day
Your off to a good start
That would be about it. What I wanted and imagined. Only a few more razors (let's say 1930's aristocrat), and a butt load of razor blades
I also have 2 strops, 3 straights, 2 hones...
PS. I need a nice display cabinet also.

Blake - A legend among the voices in his head.
very nice- nothing to be ashamed of!
As for using them, I use only the ones pre 1940's With the exception of the No.66 and the rooney DE.
I'm a vintage type of a guy!
Great collection! It's an excellent start.
Trust me - it doesn't end.
Oh sure. You tell yourself "Wow! I'm set for life. That's a nice looking bunch of razors I have and they all shave nicely."
Then, one day - maybe six months after you say the above, you find yourself in a store and you see a lonely razor. All by itself in the middle of a bunch of perfume (????) bottles. Some part of you feels sorry for it and realizes it needs a new home. A good home with other good razors. Not with stinking perfume bottles!
And you're off!
Or something like that.
Last year, I said I was only going to use the shaving creams and soaps, but not the DE's - they looked too dangerous! Then I said I was only interested in DE's, not SE's or injectors, and certainly not straights. NOW, I'm saying I have no interest in straights..........I feel like Steve Martin in "The Jerk", "...and all I need is this SS, and this Slim, and that's ALL I need! And this Gem, I need this Gem, too, and THAT'S ALL I need! And this injector........
ALERT! ALERT! Incoming!

Cool! So many razors and only one face. Kinda' makes ya' wish ya' had two heads.
Isn't that a Wilkinson sticky? Nice collection!
is that bar handle NEW replated? is so, it looks incredible. if not, it looks incredible.
Your off to a great start. How do you like that Rooney razor? Been considering picking up my little brother one of their razor/brush sets from classic shaving and was just wondering what you thought about it.
That's a very nice collection...
Cheers, Luc - My Gear(Wiki) - Have a question, PM a mod. That's why we're here!
And I don't have to mention it looks great side by side with my rooney
Your 40s to 50s are awesome!
Are they all part of a big rotation or do some sit on the counter whereas others are being used more often?
