I am going to list a few razors and cannot find a Goodfella and a Super Adjustable I was going to list. When you have so many razors that you don't use and can't find them, it's time to stop.

You mean it is time to start working on your soap and cream collection so the razors don't feel lonely. Biggrin

Dave, I could not agree more. That is why I only have 5 Schick (actually only need two), 2 Gillette SS (only need one) and 1 EJ DE87. Oh, forgot the one Feather Popular for travel.

At one time I had over 50 razors and 25-30 brushes. All it did was give my wife a reason for her shoe fetish. Smile

Honestly, I'd be fine with just my two TTO Open Combs, but I just cannot stop.

I have cut way back though. I have a Schick Adjustable, PAL Adjustable, New Long and Short Comb, TTO Senator, TTO Sheraton, Mergress, Old Type, R101, Mariner, Super Adjustable, Vintage Merkur Slant, 1973 SuperSpeed (birth year) and hopefully a 73 Adjustable and Tech soon.

I do need to order some PDP and others from you in the next bit, and I still have my eye on the Special Edition Brushes. I've had to liquidate lots of stuff to pay bills since I didn't have a job for 4 weeks.

You may have a point there, Dave.
i seemed to have stopped with the Cobra! However, i have not tried any injector razors, yet, so i may just out of curiosity! HaHa.
Stop trying razors! BAhahaha! Oops, sorry.
You need to get them organized in a display cabinet or the like.

Well, I'm far from that point, but I have 17 razors, 6 of which I regularly use when I'm not blade testing. A few of the often unused razors are for special times or for mornings after a night of bad ice cubes.

I realized that other than really special razors that I will make or find room for, I have enough and I stopped. The same with soaps/creams and brushes.

Enough is enough. Now if I find better examples of razors that I have I will upgrade and sell the old, but they had better be significantly nicer for a very reasonable price. It probably won't happen.

The only thing I want more of are blades. I also want some MdC, but that's pretty much it.

I'm also making some of the razors in my care better. I just sent out 2 for replating. Hopefully they'll last another 100 years.

I have happily cut back.

I only have an Old Type on a BRW improved handle, a 30's Barbasol, and an OCMM.

I do have a backup of each, but they are stored away just in case.

I went from RAD to SBAD and stayed at SBAD. It was generally cheaper the first way.

I have cut back to 5 Schick injectors, 2 1912 Gem SE, 2 Gillette New OC, 1 Gillette ball-end old type, and 1 Gillete ball-end Tech DE razor.

2 Rooney badger brushes, 2 Semogue boar brushes, and 4 Omega boar brushes.

5 shaving soaps,and two shaving creams.

Sure doesn't look like I "cut back" much. Confused

I'm proud to say that I have cut back as well on brushes and razors. The soap and cream addiction is raging though right now.

I'll try and post up a pic of my shave den later this week, but for now, here's just the soaps and creams.

That's not the right attitude to have. You just need to be more organized. Buy a larger cabinet and get back out there. Where is that "can do" spitit? Did Tom Hanks "stop" when he ended up on that island talking to a volleyball? NO!
