I've been using safety razors since Ike was President and for much of that time Double Edge razors were one of the impulse buying objects at nearly every checkout register along with cigarettes and Zippo lighters and Kodak film. Add in the fact that a safety razor was a "safe" gift for most any occasion and being in a family with a tradition of Hand-me-downs" means that  although there has never been the intention of collecting razors (or pocket knives or or lighters or fountain pens or watches or ...) I somehow ended up with a fair accumulation.

After discovering "Shaving forums" I decided maybe it would be worthwhile putting together some Boring Details about the razors; maker and style and model and dimensions and weights.

Here is the latest version of that data:

If it's stuff already available everywhere then just assume I have no Google-Fu.

If it's stuff everybody already knows the just assume I'm old and if I don't write it down I forget it.

If it's neat then enjoy it.

I did not include some things that I probably should; like the Schick Krona is the plastic end version and I have the metal ended ones as will so should include them  Also the different Super Speed Flare tips vary in weight so I should have included more examples of them,

But I didn't although I might so stay tuned for the Next installment of BORING DETAILS.

Sure, it might be boring to some but not all, especially DE collectors and aficionados.  Thanks for sharing.  Do you plan to keep it updated as other acquisitions or information come your way?

I certainly will try to do so.  As I mentioned, I can already think of several things I should have included. I've also thought about adding "gap" to the table and with adjustable ones maybe minimum gap and maximum gap if that is something folk would find interesting.

I often wonder.  There are some others, a few Rolls and at least one Autostrop and who knows what else might be lurking is forgotten boxes. I know I have a bunch of old pipes (smoking kind) and someone was interested in them which is when I found the box with the Schick Kronas and a mess of old lighters and some Scripto pencils.
