I had this posted in the straight, as well as the DE and SE forums but I thought I'd keep it here as I add on to it regularly.

The first three are my regular rotation, ones that I use but plan on restoring, and the third photo are ones for restoration.

The DE and SE are overall shots but close ups of groups are available. Same for the Straight collection.

Thanks guys.
I like the variety of things made over the years for shaving. I find them interesting and clever solutions. Everything from sharpeners, blades, holders, etc. to the beauty of some of the cases themselves.
Neat stuff. I don't collect one thing in particular,but a nice variety.

Hey, if it gives you any more leverage to buy more stuff, knock yourself out.

Pick up what you can , when you can. I'm going this afternoon to look at more stuff from a guy who bought out some barbershops. I'm anxious to see what he has. Just hope my pockets are deep enough!

No, she thinks it's pretty cool. She thinks I should have a space to display it better which I plan on doing.
And , according to her, there are a lot of other things I could be doing with my time and $ that are less productive. At least with this stuff I could easily recoup my investment, probably several times over considering what I have in it vs. what it could bring.
And at this point, with the resto work I do it's become self supporting. My hobby, or part time job really, supports my collection. I call that a win.

Added to the collection today.
Razors are, T.Hessenbruch, Lee Mfg., Hugo Becher, Electric Cutlery, J. H. Flaggs, Challenge Cutlery Bridgeport, Worthington, CAstle by Theo. Kochs, Simmons Hardware, W&B., American Steel, Imperial, Wostenholm, no name,Bohler, Karl Engles.
The Gillette mirror is neat, the bottles will make a good backdrop to a display, the blade packs are in nice condition where the large one is complete and includes the original pack and the small one is missing a pack.
The Burma-Shave is full and never used.

So this is what wet shaving heaven looks like. So many razors and so little face to shave. I sent you an e-mail for a replacement scale for my Feather SS folding razor. See why you are so well recommended.

If you scroll down a bit more you'll find a more updated post on my storage solution. The collection has grown quite a bit since this thread was posted . And it has grown yet again since the storage post was done.
