    Dust..ha.!! My house is over 100 years old, dusting is a chore, to say the least. But it hasn't affected my razors, by any means. I guess it would play havoc, in a humid, closed environment. Most are in the chest, some in original boxes, others in the open are waiting for the next chest, to be done.

    Realistically, the difference as far as the actual shave goes is about $950.00 but the enjoyment factor to the individual user can't really be quantified in dollars and cents. Shakespeare had it right with "Therein lies the rub".
