Straight Razor Acquisition Thread

Discussion in 'General Straight Razor Talk' started by wilbr11, Aug 20, 2014.

    Okay, so I'm definitely not being original on this, totally taking Bigfoot's idea, but I love looking at the Safety Razor Acquisition Thread on the DE Subforum and I haven't been able to find one for straight razors. I'd love to see any Straights you've recently acquired (Pictures are a must). This Fromm is one of my most recent acquisitions

  1. Cool idea. My newest acquisition that I've actually received. Shumate, pre St. Louis move.

  4. Very good idea indeed!
     
  5. I just bought what I think will be my last SR for a while, despite my sudden SRAD. SWMBO is cracking the whip.
    But here it is, my new Alex Jacques Custom that should be in the mail today:

  6. These are some beauties Gentlemen!! Keep them coming!
     
  7. Those are awesome! I've heard a lot of good things about the Revisor Razors themselves. Did you order that one from their site or 3rd party?
     
  8. Picked this up on the 'Bay last week. These are the pictures before I shipped it off to be expertly restored and rescaled by one of our amazing members. [​IMG]

    I'll post more as soon as I get it back :)

  9. From the Revisor web site and the ordering process was easy but the shipping ( well who knows)
     
  10. Got these two today. Came with some awesome custom scales. Both are near wedges.

  11. I love Alex's designs
     
  12. Yeah, I'm really excited to have grabbed this one. I'd love to have a complete 7 day set of his.
     
  13. These are both seller pics. Got this tosuke kamisori the other day,

    It just needed soap and water and cleaned up really nicely. Honed yesterday and had a really nice shave today. A little more refinement and it will be fantastic. First kami other than the Martinez pass around. I really like the size and balance of this one.

    Arriving today an F.A. Koch microtome.

  15. Just got and loving this Toyo 666 from a certain Korean hobbiest.
