    the lord L6 is a murker clone shaves great but the handle is aluminum so its light if you want a cheap tto get a weishi thats also called the microtoch one sold at walmart for 20 bucks but the weishi is 6 bucks on the bay and its the same exact razor. gilette techs usually go cheap on the bay 10-15 bucks but being new some people think used razors are nasty so id play it safe and get him a new one

    From the 2 I have (tech and flare tip rocket ) I think the tto would be the go as I had better shaves from it and prefered the weight and is a solid bloke I'm buying for so think that he will too.
    My wife calls me......... Can you just use Ed

    Hi Eddy, get him a Merkur 1904. Men's Biz in Melbourne is the best place to get one in Australia. Forget the rest, this is a quality razor and when teamed with Astra or Feather blades he can't go wrong.

    EJ 89 or Parker 24C are my 2 go to DE razors. Not sure if you can find them on Ebay or in Aus though. The Parker was like $30.

    Dont know about in Australia but here, beauty supply shops carry cheap Chinese DE razors. I'd THINK Pacific rim stuff (maybe a Weishi) would be cheap and easy to find.

    A vintage gillette super speed. I haven't bought a DE in ages, but when I got mine, they were cheap ($10 for a nice one) and they're mild.

    Concur. An excellent razor at a great price. The open comb Merk 1904 (41C) Classic is duh schizz for a new guy.

    You can get an Edwin Jagger for about $30 ish on Amazon (And probably most retailers) a great razor. and if you didnt like it they fech a similar price on the bay even the used ones.
    Its a great razor in terms of looks and shaving ability.

    Good luck with which ever razor you choose

    The Cadet razors are cheap, well-made, good shavers - I recommend them highly.

    I won't say much about shipping internationally. I will also suggest antique shops. Sometimes it takes a few trips. I just found a nice vintage with a large comb for less than $9 US. I'm sure there has to be someplace near you that has nice vintage items. If you don't mind international shipping you can also check out/price SRD. They have sone good quality razors for reasonable money (not counting shipping). Good luck!
