Gents,

Hello!

I recently found my way to vintage razor blades and tallow based soaps.  I used the venerated Personna 74 Medical Prep, and I immeadiately knew that modern DE blades were no longer going to have a serious place in my process.  This little metallic miracle also inspired me to jump into the vintage soaps.

So I did some research, talked to some experts, and I set out to acquire what are commonly regarded as the best blades ever made...mostly Personna 74 Medical Prep, Wilkinson Light Brigade, and Wilkinson London Bridge Blades.  

I want to thank all of the forum members who answered my want to buys, and even the ebayers that sold a few to me.  

I figure what I have amassed so far should last me about 40 years when I take into account my supply of FHS-10 blades for my Oneblade razors.

The first pictures are of the collection.  The others show the plastic box that is used to store all of my Personna 74 Med Prep, most of my Wilkinson Light Brigade, and most of my London Bridge blades.  The case is shock absorbent and airtight.  The little orange packets absorb any moisture around them.

I hope that everyone has a nice week ahead!

Matt

That's definitely a serious storage box for your vintage blades.  Pelican cases are great.

Bahahahahah! YES!! I actually need to buy another Pelican to hold the extra straights which are on a high shelf! That’s not neat or ideal with young kids that tend to be mischievous rascals!

Outstanding work, Matt.

I have great respect for both the blades you are accumulating, and the case you have chosen to store them.

Thanks Tom! Only buying Personna 74 medpreps and Light Brigades now when I can snag them at beautiful prices...so few and far between!

I have enough now to see me to the end, so no rush or sense of urgency anymore!
