    WTB: Straight Razor

    I decided to give shaving with a straight razor a try, so I joined Badger&Blade and have been poking around for a bit. I figured some people on here might have a good, inexpensive
    -under $40- straight razor that I could buy and see if this is a route to further persue.

    Thanks,
    Travis

    Hi Travis,

    Also check out straight razor place. It is one of the best sites for straights IMO. They also have a classified section where you should be able to find an excellent, shave ready, but cheaper straight razor. Check out their wiki of desired brands before you purchase as well.
    At Death's Door You Only Have 2 choices. Die Happy or Die Regretfully.
    Knowing this...........Choose 1 and Live!!!!!!!!!

    Did you have an idea of what kind of razor you where looking for? I have more razors than I need, just went almost a year going through all my razors, Now I have a few weeks of honing to catch up on

    I'm not really sure. I'd like to try out a few to see what works for me. I ordered one from the Whipped Dog as "sight unseen razor" so who knows what I'm getting. If you have a couple you want to unload pm me and we'll take it from there.

    Travis, you better be warned with Butch chiming in. The next thing you'll know he'll be selling you one of his bad ass straights.

    I don't think Butch does custom work anymore, but I could be wrong.
    However, yes, they are bad ass.
