Vintage: Razors

Taking a step beyond what's become a rare but necessary indulgence at few barber shops in NYC, such as Freemans Sporting Club, is to then actually own a beautiful straight edge razor itself, especially when the're vintage or at least inspired by the classics shown here. And since we grew up with the safety razor, having gained an appreciation passed down from our grandads and our dads who taught us to shave, we're also drawn to the real thing that gives us that touch of nostalgia. By "real thing" we mean the genuine oldies from Gilette, Ever-Ready and even the British Army to name a few below.
