I was cruising the old e-bay last week just to check out the GEM Featherweights since I PIF'ed mine to my son-in-law. I found one with a case that looked pretty good. The starting bid was $5. with $5.80 shipping. I said WTH and pulled the trigger for the 5... I thought for sure someone else would out bid me and I kind of forgot about it. Then I get the invoice for the razor. It arrived Friday and turns out the razor is in excellent condition. Not a single scratch or mar anywhere to be found. The case was a little dirty on the outside but a little TLC and now it looks brand new. What a deal for $10.80. I can't believe no one else bid on this jewel... Needless to say there are still deals to be had at the old e-bay...

Since fewer users go after the SE class (GEM, EverReady, STAR, etc.) they represent a great value both in terms of functionality as well as a large selection in great shape.

It is nice to get a good score, isn't it? Enjoy!

Featherweights never command a high price. Some sellers set delusional high buy-it-now prices but those never move. Auctions tend to end at that price mark because not that many bid on them. Best deals are on b/s/t here and across the street. If you put a wtb post you'd surely get a response.
Enjoy your new razor. I always found the fw too mild for an effective shave. I recently pif'ed one to a friend but he has yet to use try it out.

I will have to post a pic now since you guys are so inquisitive.. The camera on my WWI issue cell phone will have to do. My decent camera gave up the ghost and I still haven't replaced it....

It does look like a nice little razor.

Everyone should have at least one Featherweight.

And as everyone know ... The Bay has some bargains and some very high priced items. But, you never know what you will get until you look.
