What have I done?
When I started this, all I wanted was a better shave. Now Im stopping by antique shops looking for vintage safety and straight razors. Well I went and did it today. I ordered a "shave ready" refurbished razor from a custom razor maker. Well that will only be good for a day or two of shaving so now I have to order a strop. Tony Miller is a cottage industry part time maker of some of the fines strops around (supposedly) so I ordered one of his "apprentice" strops. Reported to be of the highest quality, just a simple design. I like that combination, quality, simplicity, and a more than fair price. Wish me luck.
