    Apart from the ridiculous asking price, that listing should be done for copyright infringement: STRAZORS.com - all about classic razors - Joseph Wostenholm & Sons, Sheffield.

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.

    I love them also but not at that price. You would think they would offer free shipping!

    Reminds me of a 5/8 hollow A.J. Jordan with box I see now and again. First time it listed for $3000, then $2000, then $300 a couple of times. The last few times I saw it at $200. Sometimes for fun I'll sort highest price to lowest and see some crazy priced items.

    You have GOT to be kidding me. It seems hard to believe you could miss it that many times but I wonder if that is a typo. I can't imagine anyone being THAT optimistic.

    I just checked on it, now it's at $100. It's not a bad looking razor, just way overpriced

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/A-J-Jordan-...Condition=3000

    I got my first Jordan with a square point from a pawn shop for $10, added a clean box for $5 later from the bay. It wasn't in quite as good condition, but still...

    Actually that purchase was funny. I was really new to buying straights (second purchase ever) and the owner said make an offer. I didn't want to insult him or pay to much so I said $15. He immediately countered with $10...??? My brain almost broke itself...stutter...stutter, Uhm, Yeah deal. He said he sometimes likes to do that just to see the look on peoples faces. I'm pretty sure he got his $5 out of me

    Maybe it's never meant to be bought, only being used as a method of transferring money...OMG maybe all those ludicriously expensive razors on ebay are all just part of a wider network of people who use ebay to launder money!

    ...there's a small chance I watch too many movies.
