We talked about family, friendships, vacations, and the like. It was a nice, easy conversation.One of the things we ended up discussing was my new interest in writing, particularly with fountain pens, and shaving old school with double edged and, occasionally, straight razors. Shaving like this is kind of a weird hobby, I admit, but it has turned shaving from something I hate doing into something I love doing. From soaking the brush, to loading lather into it, working it into a huge and rich lather with incredible scents. I love the whole ritual, especially shaving that rich lather off my face.
Anyway, my brother in law got up and brought back this leather roll. I actually thought it was a pen roll at first.
I unrolled the pouch....
...and turned it over to reveal the familiar tangs of straight razors!
I carefully took the razors out, one by one, taking a look at each...
...then opened them to inspect the blades.
There is some restoration work to be done, but I am so excited to get these, and to eventually shave with them!
