    Careful ... They do become addicting little things, once you figure out what to look for, and where to look, who to talk to that can point you towards your next find. Really the hunt is the funnest part. Here's a little tip!!!
    The next rainy, boring day.
    Jump on the web, check in your area (as far as your willing to travel) for antique shops. Pick a few and go hunting. Take a pad and pencil with you to mark down isle and booth #s, and all the goodies you find, then get a salesman and look at all of it "BEFORE" you decide to buy it.
    It will keep you from trying to buy it all, and weed through the junk to find the good ones. Then you know where their at, when you come back the next time.
    There will be new stuff coming in all the time. Ive collected alot this way, on the cheap.
    This one was the best find this year $6.00 yep $6.00

    Hey you know what that sounds like a good idea for tomorrow me and my wife are spending a little time together after we run some errands and we plan to go do something that we both like and she loves going to antique shops and thrifts stores I know I'll probably won't find nothing in the thrift store but we have a lot of antique shops around my area and I've actually been to a few and found razor in one it was a Anthony Tad Ross I believe that's how it was spelled but it didn't tickle my fancy lol always wanted to use that word really I love king razor mfg Co razors, Gotta, Genco, clauss, puma, Keen kutter, tridente Ed Wusthof, filarmonica, a few Japanese brands a few french brands and a few more that no need to mention because the list can just never end lol so am sure I'll find something I like in the shops

    Look everywhere, even Craigslist. Find some off the beaten path type antique store and bring an eye loupe and a small flashlight. In my area 95% are in locked glass cases or "manitque" type displays.

    Food for thought. If you are looking for practicing restoring, then you may want to pick up one that is in bad shape if you can get it really cheap. Practice makes perfect and chances are you will make a few mistakes on your first couple tries (god knows I have...).

    Yeah.. I [emoji90] myself. When I pulled it out of the box and seen how clean it was. Then [emoji90] myself again at the price she gave me. Was looking around the store all happy, but felt like I was stealing it at the same time.[emoji5]

    Yep. i have a covered tang Clauss & I got it for cheap when others on eBay got preoccupied with other things. You can get good deals by just shopping around.
