I have a Durham Duplex with several boxes full of razor blades. I only break the thing out when I'm going to some kind of social function or feel like being really special, because there is a finite supply of blades for it and I'd like it to last my lifetime. The razor and the blades came from my grandfather's drugstore. Some day I will get a true straight razor to shave with, but for now I content myself with the Durham Duplex.
