Bought a crap straight razor off ebay.
Yeah, so I'm going down that rabbit hole. I figured since I have all the stones, strops etc, I should stop wasting my money on disposables.
I grabbed up this Pabst and Kohler off ebay mainly because it was cheap ($15), vintage, looked in goodish shape, German made and has Pabst in the brand :) Anywho, the razor is in poor condition. No major rust or pitting, but the blade is much more uneven along the edge than it looks in the picture (I pulled it off the ebay sale). I'm gonna do my best to make the edge straight and shaving sharp, but I don't even know if it's worth it.
I'm freaked out about an old used razor, so it soaking in disinfectant, then it will get a good scrub, then a lil lovin' on the stones 'n strops. The scales are horrible plastic, and the hinge point is pretty weathered (I'm most worried about contaminants in this area, as I can't get to it and clean it). But what the heck, here goes nothing!
