ShaveWorld.org - International Shaving Collectibles

shaveworld.gifShavingStuff reader Robert wrote in with a couple websites to check out. The first is ShaveWorld.org,

...the largest, most comprehensive website for the collecting and preservation of implements and historical records related to the art of shaving.

And they're not kidding. Want to see 683 pictures of different brands and models of razor blades? You bet you do. Especially when there's this razor with Mickey Mouse on it. Hey kids - playing with shiny, sharp objects is fun! Or how about 1297 pictures of safety razors? Take that Wikipedia.

The site requires a login, which is kind of a bummer, but no doubt it's how they keep their quality so high. Definitely go through the registration dance. It's worth it just to browse the photos. If you're feeling a little more gregarious, click on over the to forums and discuss. (Sadly, the forums don't look too happenin'.)

And if you become totally sucked in, clear your calendar this October for the 3rd International Shaving Collectibles Meeting in beautiful West Chester, Ohio - October 21-22. $64 gets you in the door. ($75 if you register after July 31st.) "Spouses, at a reduced fee, are encouraged to attend." Yeah, I think we'd be testing the bonds of our marriage if I dragged ShavingStuff wife to an event like that. But, judging by the photos from the 2005 Shaving Collectibles Meeting, there's some swanky food and wine. And tons of shaving stuff.
