Gentlemen, 

I am currently in search of an affordable (<$80) , and NEW straight razor to begin learning the art of straight shaving. If any of you know of a good source or have found them online or otherwise please give me a heads up! (and no, Richards Razors is not a good source, if you even joke about that I'll virtually slap you) haha, just kidding, but seriously...

Thanks

-Evan

That's what I love about this community, thorough, concise responses. Thank you sir!

I'd be interested in your experiences as you learn this "art form" of shaving.  I however can't help you with your purchase decision though.  But please do keep us posted on your progress, and post a pick of the kit you settle on, even some of the variations you try in the Shave of the Day Topic.  Straights both fascinate me and terrify me all in the same moment...LOL...Good Luck Evan...

I am seeing a lot of straights go up for sale over at The Shaving Nook.  You might want to check out the Sell and Trade Section.  I just bought a Schick Krona off a guy over there and the transaction went very smoothly.

Here's a link to the forum...
