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.
