Thinking of downsizing my straight razor collection. I have all dovo's and 6 of them are 5/8s. I first bought them as a theme razor for each of the days of the week but since they are all except for one, practically the same razor I am starting to consider it wasteful and redundant. I really do miss the TI heavy grind that I sold next year and I am considering selling downsizing to a couple TI's and one dovo 5/8 stainless. However, I fear of having "sellers remorse."

It's a tough decision. I have a sizeable collection of TI straights that don't see enough use to justify keeping them. However they are works of art and not easily replaceable. I hope that when time permits and I have more of it on hand that they will start to see more use. I also hope that my two sons will appreciate them when they are old enough and therein lies my justification for retaining them...

Downsizing,, selling,,these are concepts I've heard of but don't quite understand. My collection is redundant and I revel in it.

Turn the Dovos into a full 7 day set and then go and buy the others you want.

I fully understand where you are coming from, I personally will go out of my way to try my very hardest to not have two similar razors in my collection, I can think of nothing worst than owning a seven day set of razors each one identical, the only thing I want replicated in my razors is a square point as I like the accuracy a square point gives me when shaving, I own hollow grinds extra hollow quarter hollow half hollow western style folding Kamisori grinds, I say variety is the spice of life, I encourage you to go for it you won't regret it.
