Ahemm... haven't I seen you using a straight razor, Jim?
I forgot to show my Parker Variant.
Yes, you have. I use a straight on Saturdays. I actually have eleven that are shave ready. I will have to list them, too.

So Jim, what size do you want your collection to be in the end? Other than some that you will keep for sentimental reasons, do you plan on keeping one or two of your favorites from each category of razors? For example, two favorite DEs, two favorite injectors, etc.
The reason I ask is that I’ve thought about this myself. I would like to make the decision where they go, and not my kids.
Well, I started by pulling out eleven razors that I can easily do without. I think next, I need to pull out those I absolutely want to keep. Then I can start making decisions on the rest. I may start a page in the B/S/T section. I have never sold a razor on eBay and may not start. Anyhow. I am thinking of offering some to go along with my brushes. If I can get down to under 30 razors, that would be great. That would still give me plenty of variety to shave with, and I would not be taking up as much space in the house.
That sounds like a plan.
Jim, I would say that your collection make me feel better about my own, but I'm not so sure. And If I pulled them all out and catalogued them, well then there would be proof.
Sounds like a challenge to me.
