    One more vote for SRD. However, Merz Apothecary has a couple brick and mortar stores in Chicago. I believe their online store Smallflower advertises here on Straight Razor Place.

    My second post tonight recommending Whipped Dog for a beginner kit. I invested less than $100 to get a pro honed vintage razor, leather strop, balsa strop, brush, soap, instructions, and even a decent DE razor for backup.

    Strop is a cheap but functional, but I certainly don't feel bad that I've cut it up pretty badly.

    Balsa strop I pre pasted with two grades of Abrasive.

    Brush is basic black badger and even comes with a packet of oxy clean to treat the badger smell.

    I suppose I sound like a shill for Larry at Whipped.. but really I am just a fan since it is how I got started.

    Well, yes you do but by definition a shill needs to be receiving some form of gratuity for recommendations.
    I'm not asking you to tell us if that's the case but be aware it is not an acceptable practice on SRP & no joking matter.
