11th National Shaving Collectibles Meeting


Another successful Shaving Collectibles Meeting was held on October 11-12, 2014, in West Chester, Ohio. With this meeting being the 11th consecutive shaving collectibles meeting held in this location, West Chester may soon become the shaving collectibles capitol of the world.

There were several presentations including

Cleminsons’ Blade Banks - Jack Hayes

Who Was Alexander Timothy Brown? - Doug Nicot

The Marketing Powerhouse of the Gillette Safety Razor Company - Matt Pisarcik

Guarded Razors Before Kampfe - Al Zimmer

There were also many door prizes graciously donated and given away by a drawing of names.

A wonderful variety of not-so-common and rare collectibles were on display and for sale: barber bottles, shaving mugs, straight razors, safety razors, blade banks, razor blades, and stroppers and hones. Buying and selling was brisk and many people left the meeting with new items to add to their collections.

On the Friday evening preceding the meeting, a get-together dinner was held at the nearby Bravo Cucina Italian Restaurant and on Sunday, a brunch was held at the Rosenthal’s that included a viewing of his safety razor and shaving brush collection.

Plans are currently underway for the 12th National Shaving Collectibles Meeting in October of 2015. This meeting will be a joint venture with the National Shaving Mug Collectors Association and will be known as the 3rd Shaving Collectibles Extravaganza. As always, it will be held in West Chester, Ohio. Plans are for emphasis to be placed on honing and sharpening and a special presentation for wet shavers.

Please mark your calendars for the

3rd Shaving Collectibles Extravaganza:
a joint meeting of the 12th National Shaving Collectibles Meeting
and the National Shaving Mug Collectors Association

October 10-11, 2015
