Review of: Grim Reaper Straight Razor Knife
Beautiful and sharp right outta the box. Bigger than I thought it would be! Very tight, can't open with one hand, takes a while to loosen up. Overall great quality for the money.
Review of: Kriegar Vintage Barbershop Folding Straight Razor
Strong and good quality. I remember seeing my grandfather shave with one of these and I wanted to try it myself. Mine was sharp right out of the box but I purshased a leather strap and a wet stone to keep the blade sharp.
