    Default How did I do, and should I buy this one too?

    I won this mad puppy for $12 shipped on MEbay:

    wondering how much this one is worth including shipping (is it worth $20 shipped?):


    It looks like it has a concave blade instead of convex. Is that bad/good/ok?
    It was made in Solingen Germany
    It says 'lightwerk' and 'black velvet' on it

    The first one is not bad but not spectacular either. Should be an ok run of the mill shaver. You should give it a bit of a polish.
    As for the second one, I don't trust the pic, but in any case, I'd put it in the $12 shipped range. I got better for less.

    Unfortunately, given the current state of the razor market, $20 shipped, while still too high, is what the market will bear. As far as your comment about concave vs. convex, I'm not sure there has ever been a convex razor made.

    The Geneva is just fine. The other one bothers me because of the pic. It suggests that there is to much hone wear on it.
    Wait for one with a better pic.

    BTW, all straight razors have a concave grind except very, very
    old ones.
