Since getting into straight razor shaving I've gotten 2 absolutely amazing deals. The first one was a Boker King Cutter straight razor for 20$ that is from the period between 1924-1935 according to the stamp, mint condition blade except for a broken scale. It doesn't even look like it was used and came shave ready. So then I was looking for a strop for a long time, last week I managed to find a genuine horsehide strop with no nicks or anything for 10$. The funny thing is these are stores where everything is overpriced and then you manage to come across something way underpriced. Finally had a good 2 pass shave today, I didn't have a quality strop so I really wasn't getting a good edge which results in unnecessary cuts and just an overall unpleasant experience. Anyone else have any antique store bragging??
