I've caught the straight razor bug pretty hard. I've been pretty lucky, though, and I've ended up with 5 good razors for very reasonable expense.  I imagine I will get a couple more, as well. I'd like to try a wedge and/or near wedge. And I would really like to get these ones re-scaled at some point, because they are all good shavers with different attributes and worth hanging on to for a while.

Starting from top left:

Plato 4/8 "Janice" half hollow(I think)
Torrey 5/8 full hollow
Geneva Cutlery 5/8 extra hollow
Taylor Eye Witness 5/8 half hollow
Gold Dollar 300 6/8 full hollow

The Torrey is my favorite, followed pretty closely by the Taylor Eye witness. Both are very smooth razors. The Torrey is a bit more efficient and has a really nice sound. The Taylor is a lot smoother, but isn't quite as efficient. I really like how solid it feels too.

Anyhow...That's my modest collect. Nothing fancy but I'm happy with all of them.

Your turn!  Show off your straights!

I will bite!

So I currently have two straights, I have had more in the past but found it was not worth it as I don't get loads of time to use them.

My two are:

Kropp 5/8 - I found this without a set of scales but the blade was in immaculate condition so I had the scales made.

Wade & Butcher 6/8 - Very similar story, blade in great condition but the scales were a mess so I had them removed and new ones made.

Joseph Rodgers and Sons 6/8 Master Razor No.1
I've had this for a little while now but never reach for it. I just prefer a DE razor. It's a shame really because it's a nice razor. It will have to make its way in to someone else's hands soon.

5.  One similar to this is on it's way to me now.  It's a Ralf Aust 7/8 with horn scales.
