Hey guys, I am just starting out with straight razors, I have been shaving with a Parker SR1 for about 5 months now and have decided to take the plunge into straight razors. I have purchased 3 straights online and would like your opinion on them. I got them for a good deal so if they are unusable I wouldn't mind repairing or even using for parts. Thanks guys!

I am not a cutthroat shaver yet, but that last one, with its curvy edge looks dangerous. Confused

Hahaha yeah, that one is definitely going to be sent out to a professional to see if they can do anything with it. If not, the scales look good.

Welcome to The Shave Nook! Smile

The first two razors seem to be in good condition, but last one's edge doesn't seem quite linear. If you get the first two honed properly, they should serve you well for quite a few years.
Good luck.
