Good Day All, First, let me say I'm really enjoying this board/forum. I have a couple items I'd like to ask where you more astute shaving afficianados might suggest I go with these two items. One of my weaknesses has always been "collecting" of various and sundry items. Auctions, Ebay, and other sources. In my "collecting" I've ended up with all sorts of things from the mundane such as post cards to the more odd such as a complete book of unissued stock certificates and official stamp of a defunct local organization and points in between. In all of this I came into the possession of an old razor strop and straight razor in it's box. The razor itself is toast. It's pretty much rusted away with the scales loose in the box and the largely rusted away blade with it. The strop, in my uneducated eye, doesn't look bad, but does look used with some areas that need restitching on what I would call the "handle." Since I discovered you folks, it's renewed my interest in them and has me wondering what's the best course of action for these items. I'm open to most anything from keeping them just because, to trading, to PIF, to whatever. I'm going to post a picture or so here in an effort to initiate a dialog about this. I hope!! So, here goes............. Didn't see what I thought would be the proper forum for a question of this type hence here where it seems to be open to miscellaneous topics. Hope I'm right.
