I think I might just like shiny things. I know several of you guys love and collect these type of razors. To be honest I have never used one so you you guys help me see the appeal.
When shaving with a metal razor, which is much heavier than a flyweight Bakelite razor, the sensation I get is that I'm holding something, a tool, to shave with.To be honest I have never used one so you you guys help me see the appeal.
A Bakelite razor feels like I'm holding nothing and becomes an extension of my hand.
Celluloid and Bakelite are both plastic and for me that's where the similarity ends. Bakelite pieces lasts for years as with old radios and telephones. I would never associate Bakelite razors, like those from PAA, with disposable razors.Not many choices out there. That's why you don't see much people using. Also Bakelite reminds some people of cartridge and disposable razors. Not many DE converts like to be reminded of that.
