Mike60005 --

Red Imp and Shumate are very popular razors, and for good reason..they provide excellent shaves. I don't know much about value, as both seem fairly commonly available still, but any straight in excellent original condition will be worth something to a collector.

Here is some general manufacturer information that probably won;t help you establish a value, but might help you appreciate the razors.

Also...if you decide you want to try and shave with any or all of them, shoot me a PM. It would be a pleasure to hone them up for you and get the edges back in serviceable condition, if you'd like. You only have to cover shipping...

Thanks! I don't plan of shaving with them, I've gone back to an Atra plus razor with an old badger hair brush I inherited from my other Grandfather and am pretty happy with that. The straight razors look well made and my respect for old tools makes me think someone should be using them. If they aren't worth much I'd gladly trade them for beer if someone was local (60005 is my zip code), let me know what you think of them after looking at the pictures.

Do you use soap and brush? I'd be more than happy to discuss possibly buying them from you. They all seem to be in decent enough shape. The second one has some active rust, and the third one looks to have a freown in the edge towards the heel, but the Red Imp and Robeson both look really nice.

Hit me up with a PM, and make an offer to sell them to me...

A pussycat followed me home from flea market this weekend. A Puma 75 is close to shave ready condition. Even has its original cat house.

Starting off the year with a great find at the antique fair this weekend, a Wilhelm Mandt #76. Outstanding 8/8 half hollow blade with zero hone wear and a nice Solingen etch. Scales have no warp and a inlay of Wilhelm. Great way to start the year. Will make a nice addition to the den.

A nice find at today's antique show. Vintage Giesen & Forstnoff Adoration De Luxe #666. In close to NOS condition, scale are straight and crystal clear. Bolster logo and inlay are a finishing touch.
