I have been shaving with DEs and shavettes and would like to buy a straight razor. But it's like trying to buy a stock on the nasdaq. There is just too much to choose from; too much to research. Too many choices leads to bewilderment. I like carbon steel because it can take an edge and can be easily sharpened. And I definitely like vintage because I believe in recycling (also vintage is very cool). So I will look on eBay and Etsy. I'm hoping someone can give me recommendations for the top three or four makers to look for and what I might be expected to pay for a razor in decent shape. I know I will have to send it out for restoration, sharpening and honing. I expect to pay $40 to $50 for that. Any advice on brands and shops that will restore is appreciated.
