SOTD "Oldest Razor" Theme Week 20-26 Jan 2014

Not open for further replies.
Hello Gentlemen, we continue the "Item of the Week" theme. This time, we want you to use the oldest razor in your rotation. Even better, post your photos of it! For me, that means pulling out my 1921 silver New Standard. If you aren't sure which razor you own is oldest, go to the razor forum and ask. You're sure to get a quick answer and learn a little in the process.

Nice photo Celestino. B&W with early morning sunlight in the background really brings out the objects in the photo.
Shea Butter, 3P Soap, Semogue 610, Gem Jewel with Gem PFTE & Mennen SB

(Is the Gem Jewel from the 1930s? If so & coincidently this is one of the oldest razor I have. Without a doubt though, it is one of my absolute favorites. :thumbup:)
