Here I was thinking, well, with my diminishing eyesight (not that bad; just getting older) I need a magnifier to help me see those finicky little details on razor handles to pick up cracks, knurling, etc. I was thinking a jeweler's loupe...I have one already but it doesn't fit my eye socket very well, so I went to ePay and what do I find ? Now correct me if I am wrong, but is that, or is that not, a Gillette ball-end handle? Oh the irony!

(It's a direct buy now, not a live auction)

That's funny it sure looks like it is one. That would fit perfectly for what you need.

It looks like the magnifying glass was soldered onto the handle and they want $40.00 for that! A47

Yes, that's what is is for sure, ha ha. I was looking for the 'monocle' type so it could rest in my eye socket and make me look like a diamond expert. Smile
