I've bought 3 Merkurs (38c, 34c, 41c) and a few creams from this guy, but the razors have all had issues, and his customer service is slower than cold molasses. Is this guy selling refurbished equipment? Should a brand new razor come with oil on the handle threads?

I have no experience with this vendor, but oil on the threads is no concern for alarm. I've had several come with oil on them and I think they do it at the factory, both to protect from moisture and to keep the threads from locking during prolonged storage.
