I think your talking about a hand made razor here for the $300 mark. Custom is a bit different I would suggest and involves time and effort by both buyer and maker in coming up with a design, materials etc. A custom, or handmade razor will not necessarily shave any better than a 99ct job that is restored well. What it provides is a collector piece, an heirloom, something that is a joy to hold (my precious...) and enhances the shave in perhaps a spiritual way for the owner.

Starting point for a decent custom must be $500 - not everyones cup of tea, not everyone can afford it or wish to prioritise money in that direction. I love my Livi anaconda (certainly not my best shaver) and look forward to Robert williams rendition of my design.
