    Notice I said most likely...
    Totally agree! When I first got into this I said I would buy just one and be happy. Then came a second one quickly and the third came quicker! Now I have not gotten into it like some but I am at 9 current in the rotation and sold the 10th due to me and it not really meshing. I would like to pick up a few more good Henckels to have since I have fallen in love lately with the one I bought.

    The internet and ease of shopping has killed the American pocketbook for sure! At one time when I was cigar smoking almost 20 years ago I had a mail order set up and not for the dog sticks but the good cigars! At any given time I had 500 cigars on hand and in one year spent several thousand on cigars!!!! Yes, you heard me correct! I was out of control and quite honestly over my head in terms of an addiction.

    It was a sickness I would say. I still love the every so often fine cigar but have had to put it into perspective of course.

    You will slow down eventually or you will be out of money unless you are a rich man and when you do and need to liquidate at a cost we are here to assist you of course!

    Well, got 3 of the seven shaving sharp so far, disaster with the 4th. Going to have 2 more on the way, a second Landers Flary & Clark "Gold embossed" "Universal" and a "Rifleman". My head hurts.

    Get your mother, or mother inlaw, or ex wife, to come over and supervise all your eBay purchases. That'll get control of the problem.

    I bought a lot at first when so many seemed unique and one of a kind. As I've seen probably tens of thousands of razors on the bay I now have a lot better sense of my personal taste and what is unique. I now only buy unique ones. But remember you can always sell some later as your collection matures, the next generation will contract RAD as well.

    if it had file work on the spine then it could have been me!
