Do you own a razor you've never used?

    Not counting your NOS toggle that's still in the shipping wrapper from 1900-long-ago - or something similar to that...do you own any razor that is fully functional...but you haven't actually used it yet?

    If so, what razor(s) and what is preventing you from using it tomorrow morning?
    Do it!! :)

    Me, I got to thinking about SE razors this evening and remembered I have an MMOC (chrome) that I never used..as I used the exact same one in brass. SO...tomorrow morning SE-shaving it is for me!

    I have a Gem Featherweight I haven't used yet, it's a nice razor, now that you reminded me I'll use it soon.

    Funny, I was JUST looking at one on eBay. I think it's at less than a dollar. In the original box. White, plastic handle.
    But then I remembered...I don't need any more razors :)

    That's it. I paid maybe $2. I bought it for no other reason but to buy it. :D

    I have an Old Type that has been sitting in my drawers for months. I shaved with it for half a pass and I haven't used it since. I guess I technically used it.

    I don't have any razors I haven't tried. Also, message me the link to that Featherweight in box for less than a dollar please. :)

    Actually that toggle I picked up a little while ago, was I believe, used by me for the first time. It was stiff from not being used so I actually had to soak it for a hour to get the adjuster to work smoothly. I will not acquire a razor that I will not use. I use them all, but not in any particular order. The toggle does now, however, only come out on special occasions.

    It was under $1 for TWO days! That's when I added it to my watch list :)

    You are so not getting a Toggle.

    I only buy razors that I'm planning on using. That is what they are made for, innit? :)

    I've got some SE's I've picked up just to add to the collection that I haven't shaved with. I don't get that good of a shave from an SE so they're mostly to look at.
    I've also got a J B Rhodes and a couple of Auto Strops that would require modifying a blade if I wanted to use them.
    Then there's the Rolls Razors (3 of them) that I suppose I'll get to eventually but I never see anyone else shaving with them so I'm guessing they'll never make the regular rotation.
    On the DE side I've got duplicates that I haven't used, a Stahly Live Blade, a NOS Ball End Tech, and a NOS Travel Tech.
