Sunday morning

It's Sunday morning and I just finished taking pictures of a few of my new additions to my razor blade collection. I primarily collect US blade but also have many foreign blades.

The Smith blades are what got me interested in razor blades. I now have over a dozen different Smith brand blades. I thought that collecting something small wouldn't take up much room. Well, over a hundred thousand blades later, I have a room full. I'm still finding blades that are not in my collection. Most are from the 1920's, 30's and 40's. As with most collectors, the fun is in the search. Most are not that vauable, a dollar or 2 each, but some can be over a hundred each. Before Gillette started buying the small blade companies, there was over 5000 brands of blades in the US alone and many, many more worldwide.
In future posts, I will show some more of my collection.
