    Acquisition disorder does not seem to exist within the cartridge shaver market. I have heard from many straight shavers with ten, fifteen or more razors and I have heard from some double edge shavers with one hundred or so razors. I have never heard of any one with a Mach or Fusion saying "got to get more of these things."

    Also, have you noticed that when msot people catch acquistion disorder it seems to surround the after shaves and soaps. I have yet to hear someone brag about there latest haul of fifty or more blades. Aside from the recent talk of the Welshi razors I have yet to hear people talk much of razor RAD. This is really the only thy I seem to come up with.

    Razor rad is pretty strong on this site. Wait till the SER users wake up. :rofl

    EDIT: For touch ups only. ;)

    Oh, contriare I have spoken with many straight users and they appear to be quite aware of RAD and its many vices. For a variety of reasons they preferr straights, and I don't blame them one bit. Spoke with one straight shaver and he seems to have fifty straights.

    I actually had quite a collection of canned goop, and cartridge shavers.......and a full blown cologne collection.......before I got into this "proper" wetshaving methodry

    A.D. is not a new thing for me

    As for double edge blades, I have a pile of those now too. I like experimentation & variety.

    well, I'd be a bit worried, if I met a guy who's collecting these cheapo-razors for the fun of shaving with them - the word "weirdo" crosses my mind :rofl

    I have 17 straights, 15 or so DE's and another truck load of soaps and creams. Still, I will never get close to Bill whose straight numbers is in the thousands!!!!

    Oh Man!!! I have enough Razor Blades to last several years. I'm not collecting them, but I bought 100 NOS UK made Wilkinsons and wish I had bought 200. Great razor blade and I already owned 300 Derby's, 200 Israeli No Names, and around 100 Merkurs (I'm am in a select group who actually like the Merkurs).

    As for DE and SE (GEM and Micromatic) razors, I don't think I'll ever have to worry about being without.

    Brushes only 5 but I'm looking real hard at a couple for Christmas.

    I've had RAD and bought the blades I guess of fear they would go away and I wouldn't be able to get any more. But after discovering and I'm not too worried any more. Besides, I usually give a pack or two of blades with razors I loan, trade, or sell, so my stash is dwindling pretty fast.

    And as always...

    Enjoy your shave...:D

    This makes perfect sense. If you have a POS (Piece of Sh**), how many more could you want?
