In my opinion, the Feather blades are the best you can get, but since you're new to this I suggest you hold off until you get your sea legs.A35335 said:Just got an old Gillette from my dad, gotta be at least 50 years old, as I can remember him shaving with it when I was just a kid...........
Anyway, need to know the best blades to get for it. I can strop/hone/polish them, but might as well start off with something good.
To me, if I really value a razor personally, I restore it to the best possible condition and use it. The act of using the razor makes it so much more meaningful than stashing it in a draw or even displaying it. If it was my father's, especially if he's deceased, it would establish a new connection to him. I can't imagine it being more meaningful than that.roughrider said:I personally wouldn't shave with it. It would hold personal value to me.
