    I've got a couple of them. They are perfectly good basic shavers--nothing special but they shave just fine. I like your logo scales--mine don't have that. I have read claims that these are highly sought after collectables, but then again, everything is a valuable collectable according to most ebay sellers. I think your price was about right given recent ebay price inflation. Most importantly, if it does the job for you, you got a deal!

    I have that same razor and use it very often it has taken a very sharp edge with little work . I would not call it a great razor but it is a very good start .

    You seem to have a pretty decent price on yours

    I sure appreciate the input. I wasn't sure if I'd overpaid or not, but I couldn't see letting this one slip by. I grew up listening to my dad talk about Keen Kutter pocket knives etc. I figured if not a great shaver it would be a decent collector.

    I have a K10. It was my first razor, and start down the RAD path. I still use my blade. It shaves good but is a little thin for my beard. I thought about selling it but it has sentimental value being my first and all. It will do you good once you get it honed.

    I actually just bought the same exact razor on ebay, except with a hardware store marking on it also.

    You'll be happy and that's a good price. Wander through some antique stores and if you're lucky you'll find some KK marked wooden boxes and tools. Lots of people collect the KK brand!

    haha yeah. I was bidding on this one and a few others all at the same time and let a few other good deals slip by me. I refused to let this one go at that point. This will be my first razor and I think I already have RAD..... ;P
