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, Sir. What brand of DE is that?

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

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

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

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

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:)

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.
