I've been posting parts of my collection all over the site.
I have all my straights in the straight razor forum. The DE's and the SE's where they belong, ( check them out if you like) and now I'm posting the rest of the set which is the brushes.
One thing I didn't include are the approx. 50 or so handles without knots in these photos. Who wants to look at empty brushes?
And as I was unloading drawers I came across a few more razors. Bear with me.

Yeah, if only I could bring myself to part with any of it! Ah, the curse of a collector.

Believe it or not, I have used most every razor here. Now I didn't bother where I have triplicates or more,, but I have used them all. Even the bizarre Griffon, all the lather catchers, Rhodiums.
The only ones I haven't used is the foursome of Schicks with the swivel heads. That's the E series, the gold, the solid silver, the silver plate and the brass. I have all the blades,bought the original canisters with the blades, but just can't bring myself to use them for some reason.

agree w/ Dale about the 2-tones. those are truly nice handles. I know what you mean about using your vintage blades, but they're SO FINE ! I was drooling over your Krona blades ! Smile

Fantastic! Thanks for sharing. I am particularly fond of the barber pole blade bank and blue/white scuttle. Some beautiful brush handles you have there too!

I just got them recently. The barber pole came with some straights and the scuttle is a Staffordshire.
