    Default New from Minneapolis Mn would like help identifying antique straight Razors

    Hello everyone. I am very new to this and actually just found these razors in my closet when I was cleaning it out. I received these from my great grand father and am just wondering if anyone knows the background on these. Looking to clean them up as well so if anyone has any tips or tricks to make them look like new again that would be greatly appreciated. Also, not that I would but wondering if anyone would happen to know what kind of value some of these would bring. Sorry to keep rambling on and thank you for all that read this! Cant wait to start this new hobby!

    I wish I could find one of these closets...especially with family heirlooms in it. All the razors you have there will be darn fine shavers with a mild cleanup and hone. I'm sure someone will be along with more detailed info. but if you want to shave with them and keep em going then you'll be just fine

    A very nice bunch indeed, all the info you will ever need is right here on this sight. Being family heirlooms makes them priceless.

    Hi and welcome. Can't help a lot but german made razors are usually good quality. For cleanup info check out the workshop forum and for the razors maybe post in the razor forum as the guy's over there know a lot about razors. Price is not allowed to be discussed on the site so wr can't help you there. Good luck
