I appreciate the link. My Razorbrite was a gift from my parents, who had purchased it years ago. Whoever sold it to them told them that it was one of several found in a warehouse somewhere. Not sure if I believe that, seeing as there's no box for it, but it makes an interesting story lol. Wonder how...

one thing gels (or other canned cream's for that matter) are good for is shaving gel er cream fights. I remember going to a church camp when I was a lad and they sold canned cream (barbisol) for exactly that purpose. Shaving on the other hand, it's gotta be soap, mug and brush for me.

so far the only soap I can remember using is the new Burma Shave and Mug brand. If the bay rum soaps smell half as good as Masters Bay Rum aftershave I'll think I've died and gone to heaven.

Visited Washington State back in the mid 80's and had my first straight razor shave in a small barber shop there. It was the closest shave I've ever had. The best I remember it was 20 bucks or less back then.

just browsed the collectors corner. Those foldabrush's are pretty neat. That's the first one of those I've ever seen. Did note that there several razors like some in my collection pictured. Going to have to unpack some of them and dust off the digital camera lol.
