    I wonder if the international shaving community (ie beyond individual forums) wouldn't be better served with one canonical source instead of two separate efforts. United forces of straight shaving, if you so wish.

    So stop by the B&B and add to the Wiki there. Wiki including straight razors!

    Thanks Robin,

    We're very proud of the straight razor database that folks such as Robin have worked very hard to put together. I for one hope to see the SRP razor database number in the thousands before too long.

    No offense to B&B in any way, let me be clear, but I take Robin's post you've quoted to be a suggestion that rather than create two separate straight razor databases, a repository that has grown to over 600 razors now should continue to be added to as the primary source for straight razor info or, that the international razor community crossing forums would be best served having a single primary source for vintage pictorial razor data. That's how I interpret it anyway.

    Either way, it's all good.

    Hello, Jim,

    Great to see you unlurk after three years. Not too many people take their time getting accustomed to a forum. Just a small question, though: Who are you?

    That was indeed my intention. And I think it would be fantastic if it actually happened. More power to both, each doing what they do best.

    You know, the funny thing is that you are free to share and remix our content, as long as you are not in violation of our Straight Razor Place Wiki:Copyrights - Straight Razor Place Wiki, especially the citation methods. Same for us, as far as I can see, although I'd much rather link to your DE database once it meets our quality standards.

    Always a pleasure, Jim. Would you mind posting a small introduction of yourself in the beginner's corner? As you are well aware, that's customary for beginners over here.

    [Edit]Sorry, Jim, didn't recognise you instantly. Guys, a warm welcome to Jim of B&B fame. I must say I'm truly delighted to have one of B&B's finest amongst us.
