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 savored. Although most vintage blades will not be as good as modern blades, they 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, and today's blades are mostly stainless steel, stainless is more resistant to corrosion and wear, and lasts much longer. Expect less shaves with your vintage blade and dry it immediately after use to get the maximum amount of uses out of it.

I  suppose the name 'Doctor's blades' refers to the sharp, surgical blades used by surgeons in the OR room, even though the quack on the box looks more like a pastor making crack as a side-hussle! Interestingly it says on the box 'This blade is not coated with paint or Shellac, no danger of skin infection'! Hell's bells, what men had to put up with years back, I won't be surprised the next pack says 'Wrapped in a asbestos wrapper to keep sterile'! Anyhoo, its vintage, looks cool and something great for your collection or to make you thankful of stainless steel blade technology. Use in good health and when you need to let down your ego a tad.

Note* For obvious reasons vintage razor blades are a lot harder (and more expensive) to find than vintage razors, and such items will come and go on our website, grab more than one pack if you could, one to try out and one for your collection, soon enough they may not be available at all!
