Grandpa's Shaving Stuff

Got this in the mail today from my grandpa. The straight razor and strop belonged to my great-grandfather and the safety razor belonged to my grandpa.

Very nice! I have a straight razor that I got in an antique shop in Galveston back in 1995. Unfortunately, it cannot be restored to shaving condition. However, I shave everyday with a 1963 Gillette adjustable DE that I got on eBay. I have been using it for almost two years now and love the shave and the savings. 8 cents per blade.

nothing like a good straight razor brush with death to calm the nerves in the morning. ill bet thats why older generations did so much with their live:)

Started with the Merkur Safety razor in December. Very Pleased. Here's to AOM for curating ideas that work.

I shaved this morning with my grandpa's DE razor. I'm LITERALLY shaving like my grandpa!

Sweet ! Are you going to use it or put it up for collector's sake ?

Schick. It's a nice addition to my collection.

Very nice, Sir. What brand of DE is that?
