    Default Zak's Big Sale

    The time has come for me to start making razors. There are still a few obstacles and problems I need to sort out to get there, and I can either sort those out with time and effort or I can spend money to fix them.

    I'm lazy.

    So, I'm listing these 8 razors at bargain prices. My preference is to move these as quickly as possible, so I haven't made sure any of them are shave ready.

    If you need it shave ready, I will happily hone it for an extra $10.

    Each razor will be a separate reply in this thread with a number, just PM me with the one you're interested in.

    Free shipping in CONUS, PM me for a quote for shipping outside the US.

    Razor #3

    20th Century half-hollow A.W. Wadsworth 'BOSS' razor. With a misspelled 'TRADFMARK' stamp. These aren't stamps, so that doesn't make it more valuable. It also doesn't make it not shave. Decorative aluminum scales.

    $40 (think of it as $35 plus $5 for postage).

    Razor #4

    20th Century Bismarck razor, slightly bellied full hollow. 6/8 with a lot of point-forward spine wear and a very faded blade etch. Would make a great travel razor, since it's not so pretty you'd miss if terribly if it got lost but still provides a great shave.

    $50

    Razor #7

    One of these.

    W&B 'Celebrated Hollow Ground For Barber's Use'. Not quite full 8/8. Heavy, from a thick spine. Small chip or forging defect at the heel of the blade. Original scales.

    I had intended to fix this up and grind a smooth lead-in to the cutting edge, plus refresh all the etchings. Instead I'm selling it. Since it's missing one washer on the pile side, I'll include a pair of Austin's replica washers, or if you opt to have it honed for $10, I can replace both washers.

    $150
