    Where to buy a straight razor?

    Anybody know of a shop that carrys barber supplies? I look like a monkey these past few days because I can't find a shop that sells a decent straight razor. People over here dont have any facial hair to shave so there aren't many shops? I'm going to end up in a laser hair removal center if I dont find a razor soon!

    SCW Cutlery on Hennessy Road in Wanchai carries straight razors. I got my Dovo-Solingen there. I use disposable blades myself. Never learned how to strop and care for a real razor. :/

    Thank you so much Jay. You have no idea how frustrating it has been trying to find a store that carries these.

    Much appreciated.

    Glad to be of help! I know I couldn't live without mine either.

    Went today and picked up the Feather. Smooth as a babys bum

    Just out of curiousity, did you get a strop and compound locally? I'm interested in getting one for my knives, and I might well have to pick up a REAL straight razor soon too.
