EDM #189 - Draw a shaver or razor


This is a 1960 safety razor I purchased on Ebay. I was pretty excited about getting and maybe a little nervous about nicking and cutting my face with this OLD technology razor. It was not so bad. I have yet to seriously injure myself and the cost of the blades are a lot less than buying blades for the newer quad blade gimmicky razors of today.

Hey, that is the same kind of razor that Anthony (and now, Alexander) uses! Anthony cannot use any other kind. His beard is so thick that other razors just break.

Excellent drawings!

I really like the illustration. Looks like a flare-tip razor. I have a few in my collection, and indeed make a fine shave. What blades do you use?
