The cabinet continues to fill up old picture (you've probably already seen it).

I know everyone who loves old razors has spares and also has a boneyard for parts. OK, so why spares? Real simple. They aren't made anymore and one must ensure that the addiction is fed. The boneyard is just a natural offshoot of acquiring razors that lack the qualities for everyday use.

The cases I got at Wal-Mart in the fishing section. They may have been $4 each. I like inexpensive. The dividers can be moved to provide longer or shorter storage cells.

The first is long-term storage. Some labels aren't correct (Lady Gillette especially).

And the second is a similar case and is the boneyard. It's largely empty, but has a few pieces that are broken or have seen better days, and 2 Techs that the plan is to cannibalize for the handles and make frankenrazors from an Old and New, and get them replated to give them new life. There are also some wooden shims used to "pose" razors for photos. Sorry, the boneyard is on top of the long term storage (Keepers) and it can be seen through the boneyard case.

So what do you use for long term storage and your boneyard?

Neat idea!

I'd suggest keeping that one on the bottom left with the red handle in the bone yard. It really tugs and pulls at the hairs, not a good shaver at all IMO... Tongue

That's a great idea, Brian. I have a couple of plastic shoe boxes that I keep under the bed for the spares and bone yard. Unfortunately, mine isn't organized at all. Confused

Nice, Brian. I was shopping this past weekend for similar solutions for not only my razor bone yard but my various, non-cased razors that deserve better than a dusty shelf.

I was thinking that the red handled tool would remove the ingrowns... Tongue
