Vintage blades for vintage shaves! The luxury of pairing a vintage blade with a vintage razor is one that won't befall many, and will always be remain an experience to be cherished and savoured. Although most earlier (50's and earlier) vintage blades will not be as good as modern blades, they do offer something more important, namely nostalgia and exclusivity, not to mention bragging rights with friends and family! Do keep in mind that razor blades prior to 1960 were mostly carbon steel, with post 1960's and today's blades being mostly stainless steel, stainless is more resistent to corrosion and wear, and lasts much longer. Expect less shaves with your early vintage blade and dry it immediately after use to get the maximum amount of uses out of it.
