    Just thought I'd take a roll call of sorts for what razors you have in your collection. Mine are:

    Double Edge Safety Razors

    Van der Hagen/Weishi 9306
    Van der Hagen/Weishi 9306CL
    Merkur 34c
    Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    1974 Gillette Super Speed U4 Black Handle

    Images for the Super Speed are attached from the 'bay seller page. I just ordered it yesterday and it shipped today, so I hope to receive it by this time next week.

    Oops! Sorry! Posted in that area. Should I delete this and the one in the straight razor section?

    Nah. If the mods see a need to move and merge, they'll take care of it and send you a PM.

    I'm easy. Unless someone fusses, it's all good.

    Regular rotation leans toward vintage. Gillette NEW Long Comb, Fat Boy, Aristocrat, & Red Tip, couple Schick injectors. Got a couple more recent pieces I've learned to use; Fatip open comb, a Futur clone called a Ming Shi 2000S, and a prototype adjustable open comb injector. Recently picked up a shavette again, but I just wasn't feeling it. I've got a dozen straights parked in a cigar box with desiccant. One day I'll find a box of hones at a flea market for the right price.

    Ooh, Ever-Ready! I saw a Deco-style one of those on the 'bay. I may send away for that since the price is reasonable and I love Art Deco style.

    Thanks to all of you good folk. It's only through the efforts of folk just like you that I can get away with using terms like modest accumulation.
