    Default Bargains are out there!

    I'm still happy with my Million Razor score, but a little big of kicking myself for not paying attention to my phone. Battery died while I was down at the barn, so my snipe did not go off and I missed a great lot.
    This is the sort of bargain razor guys love. Was it anybody here lucky enough to snag them all?
    Its nice to know there are still some bargains to be had. Dont give up guys!

    For posterity... Sold for $80

    That Henckels, that sweet Focus, the minty looking Genco.... My guess is the guy spent good money on good razors, but never knew how to maintain them (notice cheapy strop that I wouldnt let near any of my blades) Probably had some of the worst shaves of his life, and said "frack this, Mach8 for me!"

    I found a near new Thiers Issard with a middle of the road strop for next to nothing a while ago. The guy put it up as a buy it now, said he tried it but couldn’t figure it out. After testing the edge on it when it showed up I can see why.

    There will be other deals at least, good hunting.

    I need to STOP hunting! I have way too many blades, and way too many bills to pay.

    I try to avoid looking at stuff on eBay. I have a ton. I got many many bargains and a few oops purchases. It’s good to see bargains out there. It gives hope to those that would like to collect without remargaging the house.

    I've picked up razors for less than 5 bucks twice. Plus shipping. They needed work, but for a starting price i was amazed. That would have been a great bargain to get. Sorry you missed it.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    Yup, this exactly!

    I had a few bargains, but my most fortunate were a BBW that turned out to be an Escher, around 30 bucks

    Also two 7-day sets of my favorite shavers: Swedish framebacks by CV Heljestrand, if I do the quick math the average price per razor is 30 bucks, I gladly paid that price.


    I avoid looking at ebay and the likes as well. Having 2 7day sets and a suehiro 20k helps a lot though.
    It's an ongoing battle though, razors, hones, strops, brushes, soaps, etc. firstworldproblems n'at

    I've noticed more bargains recently. Definitely much better than the post-Skyfall craze.
