7-day set

I did a search on 7-day sets and didn't come up with anything. After seeing Chimensch's custom set I was wondering if there's utility in such a thing. Obviously there's the aesthetic and collector's side of it, but is there a utility side?
 
Utility has nothing to do with it. Its like buying a fancy gold watch. In the old days a well heeled gentleman of means would buy a matched 7 day set with ivory or Sterling Silver scales. it was just the thing to do.

Its really as simple as that. If you like the idea of having a seven day set then get it.
 
theres a little utility. You spend less time on the hones, as you use each razor one seventh of the time.
 
No difference in utility compared to buying 7 razors and rotating through them. However, the 7 day set has the name of the week engraved on the blade.

No utility whatsoever. Unfortunately, human beings have motivations that are totally irrational. Since, I'm normally very rational, I had to go through some mental gyrations to justify this. I'm trying to promote the idea of a truly traditional barbershop (with real straights). I convinced myself that this set would be a powerful promotional tool. The barbershop idea isn't working out, so I guess I'll have to keep the set for myself, poor me!:lol:

I couldn't agree more. It's about image and status ... even if just in your own mind, even if it just sits in your bathroom and no one sees it.

That's so I can tell what day it is.:lol:
