    Default Collection for sale on kijiji.ca

    This came to my attention on a Canadian wet shaving forum.

    The gentleman wants to sell of his collection of over 1000 straight razors, hones, etc.

    I’m not in the market, but some other SRP members might be interested.

    This particular ad is for a kit containing a matched pair of Dorkos. In the text that accompanies the ad, he describes his collection and why he wants to sell it off.

    I wish the guy luck. Glad I ceased to buy when I did. 22 years of collecting must be hard to see go...

    Well, I'd ask him for something specific, but I can't register on kijiji apparently

    LOL

    I dunno though, this would be pocket money to some... In the vast hobby of collections, several kinds are of the kind where buying the whole set from a collector is something that is done.
    And AFAIK 1000 razors is a sizeable one, but not at the top of the list in term of number of items.

    Well, tried and tried to register, even went through monkey training trying to discover on which tiles there was a fire hydrant (at which, apparently, I suck), but still can't register. Oh, well, time to remember the SRP posse what I am desperately looking for I suppose

    I see that he's now selling off smaller bits. He now has a couple of 7-day sets listed, as well as a 8/8 W&B.

    I sent him a message recommending that he joins this forum, we'll see what happens.

    I do believe the prices quoted are in Canadian dollars so consider the advantageous exchange rate compared to the US dollar. One US dollar buys you $1.33 Canadian. There is a similar advantage in exchange rates for the British Pound and Euro.
