Good day to you,


I thought I would share a glimpse of my collection, it's not very well organized yet, but it'll get there !

Top of showcase 1 = a little bit of everything :

Middle of showcase 1 = Leresche :

Bottom of showcase 1 = Gibbs and others :

The bottomless suitcase containing razors that can't fit in showcase 1 :

So I bought showcase 2 to put some of them (not all yet) = even less organized :

The rest of my Leresche :

My straights (only the shave-ready non-Leresche ones):

And some bits and bobs here and there :

Everything's not there, for example the DEs I use regularly, that are in my bathroom ^^" And in two boxes...

Thanks for the visit, bonne journée !

Very nice collection, thanks for sharing.  Your suitcase reminds me of some of my drawers in the visitor's bathroom in my house, lol....

Thank you! You, at least, have a main selection for your collection/ accumulations! I like to see what I have accumulated so it is with pleasure that I see someone else enjoying the fruits of their selections in a similar manner. I know of a few collections that never leave the vault or storage area. A shame.....
Enjoy them!

The OP's got a very interesting collection. Bravo! It's great you have the space to keep them displayed. That would never fly here. SWMBO can't understand why i've dedicated an entire shelf (in my 8'x9') home office. She can have 2 closets packed with stuff that hasn't seen daylight in 20 years, but thinks it's ridiculous for me to want to have 2 dozen assorted razors, brushes, soaps and creams...

Richard makes a good point. I feel the same is true for guitars. I buy them to play. What's the point of owning something if you can't use it? Sadly, and quite ironically, I can't keep my guitars out for extended periods of time, mostly because although our forced-air hvac system works great to keep us comfy, it wreaks havoc with tone woods. Those babies remain cased except for actual playing and routine maintenance.

Anyway my point is, how fortunate the OP is to have enough space to actually showcase that awesome collection!

Thanks for sharing.
