I bought a few straight razors, thinking I'd get really into it. I struggle to keep the edges in good shape, and don't get the best results. I'm not giving up, but why keep a bunch? I'm keeping a pair of my grandfather's, and selling the rest as a lot.

Payment via PayPal, shipping CONUS. I just had a procedure done on my foot, so I likely won't be able to go to the post office until the weekend, just as a warning.

Asking $90 (120 originally) obo for the lot. I apologize, but I'm a bit dumb regarding the sizes, so rather than guess, I'll just say the gold dollar and the seraphim are 6/8 blades, others unknown for sure. I suppose a few of them are shave ready, but given my inability to maintain edges, that's probably exceptionally subjective. Several have sticky oil residue on them.

In order from the left:

1) Prosperity something or another.
2) Gold Dollar - originally purchased from Doc226 of the other forum. Tiny chip in the blade at the toe; I think it's easily honed out.
3) Black Diamond Wedge - also purchased from a restorer on another forum. Probably the best current edge of the bunch.
4) Seraphim custom gold dollar.
5) Unknown - it has a tree on the scales. I once knew it was a relatively decent razor, but needs restoring. Scales have been cut/broken just past the hinge, and the abalone is cracked there as well. However, it could be polished and honed and still work great.

The tree logo is for Boker, a good German company still in business. It looks to be 4/8. Black Diamond Tool is 4/8. Gold Dollars are around 6/8 or 13/16. The Prosperity is 4/8 and looks like it was shortened.

Thank you sir, I was hoping someone who actually knew something would chime in about the sizes.

I'm not firm on price, so if anyone thinks I'm being unreasonable, I'm all ears.
