This may be a long shot but does anyone know if there's a store that maybe deals in double edged, single blade safety razors.

I'm talking about these old school ones: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Razor#/media/File:Chrome-Safety-Razor.jpg

Perhaps a specialty store that sells stuff like these razors, blades, shaving brushes, creams, after shaves etc?

PS: I know imports are "open", I'd much rather buy something from here if at all possible.

Here it is called "hojita gillette" or " la gillette". Can be found at art supplies stores, like leidi, or medical supplies shops around facultad de medicina (av cordoba and azcuenaga).

For anyone else who might stumble on this thread, I found two old doube edge gillette razors in San Telmo's antiques/flea market. They are in very good working condition and I'm using one of them. If anyone's interested in this, let me know and I can help out. But in the flea/antiques market you can find these razors everywhere.

As for blades (hojas de gillette) you can find them in most any kiosk, especially those that are near barber shops.
