Oh man. I got it bad!

Razor porn has taken over my life.
I want to try all of them and make a nice home for them to hang.
Then I want to try them all again with a different blade, and a different blade after that, and a different blade after that, and a different blade after that, and a different blade after that, and a different blade after that...
I want to figure out storage for the hoard of blades I don't have yet and make art from all the tiny boxes.
Worst of all, an previously unknown OCD has crept up and I want to find empty plastic blade holders (with the slot in the bottom for old blades) so that I can repack all my new blades into them and they will all be uniform for storage.

If only there was no mortgage, car payment, kid and wife to feed...
 
You do have it bad, welcome to the club.
I hope that soon either your brain or your wallet will put the brakes on for you.
Remember you have only one face, most of us can only shave once a day.
No matter how many razors you buy those two facts will always be there.
Think what it would take to do a working rotation with say 50 razors and 10 different razor blade combinations, then think how many times in one year will you use one razor and for how many days. If you want to place them in a display and look at them that is one thing but if you actually plan on using them then what would be the right number for you. And I haven't even gotten into AS, soaps, croaps, creams.

:a6:
 
For me it wore off.

Of course, not until after my wife started referring to our humble abode as "The House of Razors".
 
You got it great! You could be addicted to worse stuff! Like drugs or actual porn or alcohol.............................................Everyone has their vices, I happen to have all four.

Well, I don't drink very often...

By the way, does anyone know where I can get empty plastic blade holders? (with the slot in the bottom for old blades)
 
Use feather blades thn you will have lots. I have like 50 of them sitting here doing nothing. I dont know why i am collecting them, but they look nice to be thrown away.
 
Is it just me, or besides giving a razor here and there (one I have multiples of of course), to a convert, that no matter what I will never get rid of any razors in my den?
Like it's a prison and once a razor makes it in.... it's there forever?
I realized that the other day looking at the razors I don't use often and thought, "well one day I'll use them, so no need to be rid of them.... just in case one day I want to"
 
You DO have it bad! I did for awhile, too, but budget constraints reigned me in, and I eventually calmed down and settled into a routine. Now I dabble in new purchases, but it's mostly limited to the software side. And then I read the Delta Echo Razor Works thread. My 1963 Slim should be back from them this week. Note that I haven't bought a new razor, "only" having it refurbished and redone in Gunkote.
