    I wonder what price this will be worth 70 or 80 years down the line.

    I am not sure if these would be worth anything over time. In fact, they may be worth nothing once you purchase them as most people would not want to spend as much on a safety razor. I must say that the stainless feather razor and the Pils razor mentioned elsewhere look awesome. I would love to try either of them.

    There seems to be quite a bit of excitement about this razor, but at that price, include me out. You could get a bucketful of Techs for that money, and most of them would be good shavers; that's before you start thinking about straights.

    I dunno - stainless is pretty darn attractive qualities - I would be willing to buck up a few extra ponies for one of them - Ikons. the other 2 are flat out way too high for me - I would rather another straight for the same price.

    In all fairness, now that a few people have treated themselves, I haven't heard a single negative comment about this razor. It's reckoned to be beautifully presented and a very well balanced razor which is neither too mild or too aggressive. Clearly it's going to last for a very long time, but then again some of us use 60 year old (and older) DEs regularly and antique straights so that really shouldn't be an issue. If one was to use it every day for the rest of one's life, the price would fade from the memory long before the shine went off it.

    Good line. I'll have to remember to tell that to my wife the next time I buy a Custom razor.

    It could be a marvelous razor...

    I think I would also ask about or audition a less expensive Feather DE first.

    I am a FAN of well fabricated products and would be tempted
    based on the machine work alone, however it is about shaving

    All DEs are not equal. If you have one that flexes the blade to
    an optimum angle and then exposes it just right for your face a DE shave
    can be about as good as a shave can get. I think Feather
    understands this based on their blade selection for the Artist club
    blade selection.

    It could be a marvelous razor... I want one... and bought a lotter ticket
    so who knows.

    It seems that there is no limit of disposable income here at SRP when it comes to shaving related products. That is why it is mildly amusing when members have no problem laying down $500-$1000 for a custom SR (that will likely shave you as well as a $60 vintage from the classifieds) or $60 for shaving cream, but $160 for a DE???!!!

    NEVER, EVER!! THAT'S ABSURD! IT'S ONLY A RAZOR! WHO WOULD PAY THAT??!!


    Sorry, but it just had to be said.

    It is interesting what a dollar will buy nowadays. Just for kicks (no pun) I went to a sneaker website. A pair of top of the line New Balance running shoes is $250.00. The very idea that people pay $40.000.00 and well over that for an automobile is mind boggling to me. I'm still stuck in 1965 when a house cost $10.000.00 and if you made that much money per year you were in high cotton. So all things considered that is probably a reasonable price for those DEs being stainless and all. I mean from my perspective a dollar is worth a dime in buying power.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
