How do you store your razor blades between uses, how do you dispose of them when they get dull?  Thanks

I remove my DE blade from my razor after each shave and attach it to my Shave Nation Magnet.
This keeps them safely stored inside my medicine cabinet out of harm's way, yet within easy reach.
After 4-6 shaves, I have various blade banks to deposit them in.
Or go "Old Skool" and cut a slot in the back of your medicine cabinet (like they had in the 50's) and drop your used blades into the void in the wall. DE blades have a very small footprint, thus take up very little space.
I recently read that 11 million disposable razor cartridges are tossed in land fills every day.... ridiculous.

Geo, "I'm interested in Straight Razor Shaving, Where do I start?"

Hi Tyler,
All of our straight razors come in factory shave ready condition. Most all of my shaving videos are performed with the straight razor right out of the box from the factory, the most I may do is strop it prior to shaving with it....
Some of the reasonably priced straight razors that I highly recommend for beginners are as follows: The Boker Edelweiss, the Dovo 5/8 Round Point with Black, Red, or Pearlex Handle, or this Dovo 5/8 Tortoise Straight Razor.  These Straight Razors will definitely provide you with many years of quality shaves in the future if cared for reasonably well.
If you are interested in a set that contains a Straight razor, a Paddle Hone/Stone, and a Strop to properly maintain the razor, then check out these Dovo 3-Piece Sets. These sets are designed so that you have everything you need to embark on your quest of mastering the Straight Razor. Just choose the Shaving Cream or Soap of your choice and a Shaving Brush, and you'll be good to go!

Have A Great Shave, Have A Great Day!

Geo, Will you be participating in "No-Shave November?"

Geofatboy ShaveNation Hah!!! Very funny but highly unlikely:) I will be performing a shaving demonstration at a party sponsored by the Merz Apothecary called "The Great Shave Event" at the historic and beautiful Palmer House Hilton Hotel next Thursday night (downtown Chicago) which is slated to have about 300 Safety and Straight Razor Shaving fans in attendance!!! So, I'll be growing it out, only to shave it off at that event! Sure to be a great time!
