Gents,

I was just able to acquire another bucket list item...a 7 day straight razor set!  

I think that they are pretty neat since they were a complete luxury item from a bygone era.  I suppose that they are still a luxury item, and I know TI and Wacker still make a seven day set.

At any rate I am quite pleased with this acquisition...a seven day set of Dovo 25 razors with Fritz Bracht’s name on the back!  The word Solingen is on the face of each blade.

Thanks Ricardo! I think my collection is fairly complete now. There isn’t too much else that I am interested in at the moment!

Matt, it's time to start enjoying all your great straights.  You'll be spending some time on your Zulu Grey.  Honing is part of the enjoyment of straights.

So true! I ran the MK31 and the Wacker along the ZG today while the two youngest were taking a nap. Quite relaxing...the zen of it all!

Congratulations, Matt. I was tempted to bid on those, and am happy that you got them. When Fritz Bracht took over Dovo, the quality greatly improved, and a Fritz Bracht Dovo is about as good as you can get. The razors appear to be in excellent condition, and it's hard to find a Fritz Bracht in that kind of shape. Enjoy!!

Thanks for the kind words Richard, and a little background on Fritz Bracht Dovo razors. I was talking with Obie a year or so ago, and I remember him saying the same thing about the FB Dovo’s. So when I saw this set, I knew I was going to at least have to take a swing!

It’s my first Seven Day set, and it will have to become an heirloom. I have four boys though, so it might be tough to decide who gets it. I could have three more sons and give each boy a day ...but with six kids already, that might be a tough sell to my wife!
