18th Century Shaving Kit by Manfred Schmitz with Razor by Erv Tschanz

I bought at the Fort Frederick Market Fair by Erv Tschanz a hand forge razor and a badger hair shaving brush. Later at home I made a small mirror, soap dish, leather sharpener and a wooden razor box all in the style of the 18th century.

  1. Nice kit you made up. Interested to learn more of period razors as I only shave with vintage straight razors. Not sure where all in my collection fall. NO THING shaves like a well-honed and stropped straight razor (once you get the hang of it).
