A great place to learn for people who shave with or collect straight razors. I also write a lot of material on honing. Owned by John Tischler of The Vintage Shaving Shoppe, LLC. Become a Follower to be notified of new postings and razor "specials" before they go public. Welcome!
New Product Launch! Read Carefully For FREE Offer!
This has been a very exciting week at The Vintage Shaving Shoppe! Now that we have finally filed for our patent, we can let the "cat out of the bag" on the newest and most innovative product available for maintaining your straight razors and fine knives. The Magnetic StropBoxTM along with our Magnetic StropTopsTM, part of our Little StropperTM brand, provide a low cost, easy to use system for keeping your blades shave-ready longer than ever.And you will never have to look for a place to hang a strop again! For a long time, I have been telling my customers about the benefits of stropping on surfaces with varying degrees of abrasiveness.But that used to mean having a whole bunch of strops hanging in the bathroom – not a wife-pleaser.It’s also a very expensive way to maintain your razors, with strops running $30 to $70 each.
Those days are over.
Using the power of flexible magnets, the Patent Pending Magnetic StropBoxTMand Magnetic StropTopsTM create a completely swappable straight razor, knife and tool maintenance system that can be carried and used anywhere! And since the 8.25” X 2.5” X 2.0” Magnetic StropBoxTM unit has a sliding door on the bottom of the unit, it’s perfect for storing a razor, a shaving brush, a barber’s hone or a small tube of abrasive paste – if it fits, it is secure inside the Magnetic StropBoxTM. And the system couldn’t be easier to use! The top of the Magnetic StropBoxTM is covered with a vinyl magnet, similar to the kind you might find on your refrigerator. Just apply an 8.25” X 2.5” Magnetic StropTopTM available in fine stropping leather and 100% hard wool felt, to the top of the box and you are ready to strop. And since each MagneticStropTopTM also comes adhered to a flexible magnet, changing from one Magnetic StropTopTM to another is as easy as putting a magnet on your refrigerator door (in fact, it’s a handy place to keep them)! Hard wool felt is the PERFECT surface to use with abrasive pastes and sprays, so buy one leather Magnetic StropTopTM for final finishing and several hard wool felt Magnetic StropTopsTM pasted with different abrasives, for a COMPLETE system to keep your straight razors, knives and tools at their best. You can apply these abrasives yourself or we can do it for you. It is the IDEAL system for touching up that razor that seems a bit dull.
