Of all of the razors in my personal collection, I value my grandfathers shaving set the most. Stephen B. Pisarcik was a airplane mechanic in Northern Africa and Italy throughout WW2 - repairing shot up planes that would come back to the allied airfields. His set is a Gem Micromatic single edge razor and along with it, an old spice mug and boar brush. My grandmother gave it to me years ago, and I've been happy to have it prominently featured in my display case ever since. Today we remember our Veteran's, and being able to touch or use their keepsakes is an absolute privilege and honor. 


Who else has Grandpas' razor?

I have my grandpas Gillette Slim that he had when he was in the Marines.  I keep it in my den but haven't used it yet.
