Gentlemen, for the past few months I have had a medical problem with my cervical spine, a nerve compression causing pain in my left shoulder, arm and hand. The problem is ongoing and straight razor use is impossible. Although they are not the cause, they definitely aggravate it, so my decision is to continue with just DE's and my recently acquired Cobra. I am unfortunately, therefore,selling my straight razors.
First to go are my 3 Filarmonica razors. All were bought NOS within the past 6 months with original factory edges. Boxes are included.


Filarmonica Doble Temple #14



This is a 15/16, Full Hollow Ground, Square Point. Upon receipt, I sent this razor to Jamie for a clean and a hone. It has been used only 4 times since so I will class it as shave ready, although YMMV. Asking price is £260(pounds)which includes shipping worldwide with tracking and insurance. PayPal

ONCE ONLY PRICE REDUCTION TO £240.


OK, £210 UNTIL WITHDRAWN

Filarmonica Novodur #14


SOLD


This is a 15/16, Full Hollow Ground, Square Point. The razor still has the factory edge. Only thing to mention is that there is a hairline mark at the pivot. It is extremely fine and only visible at certain angles.(see pic) Asking price is £280(pounds) which includes shipping worldwide with insurance and tracking. PayPal

Filarmonica Especial Para Barbas Duras


A 15/16, Full Hollow Ground, Round Point.
Again, I sent this razor to Jamie upon receipt for a clean and a hone. I have used this razor only once, so again I would class as shave ready, but YMMV. Asking price is £280(pounds) which includes worldwide shipping with insurance and tracking. PayPal.


ONCE ONLY PRICE REDUCTION TO £250


OK, £220 UNTIL WITHDRAWN


SOLD

Optometrist, my friend, I am saddened to hear of your ailment. It's a tough one. Occasionally I suffer from arthritis in my hands, which makes shaving with the straight difficult. So I empathize with you.
As for the three Filarmonicas, those are legendary. Indeed, they will enrich any shave den.
Stay well,
Obie

Thank you, Jamie and Obie. I have only been using straights for 2 and a half years and this has come completely out of the blue.

David, the Filly that I bought from you previously was lonely and was crying out for his elder sibling, the gorgeous Filarmonica Especial Para Barbas Duras.

I do hope your condition improves and perhaps one day get back into straights again. The Cobra is a worthy alternative so I hear.
