ANY REASONABLE OFFER ENTERTAINED

This razor is back up for grabs. Not to the fault of the buyer but to me for missing a couple of blemishes on the razor that are now listed here. I guess in the craziness of a newborn and a 4 year old I overlooked them when I listed it the first time. The new price reflects the blemishes. The razor is on its way back to me and will ship out as soon as possible to the new buyer (full disclosure).

Great Condition. Great motion. Very shiny. Hard to say much more. Besides a couple "dots" (literally teeny imprints the size of a pinpoint) on the endcaps, a nick on the safety bar and a blemish on the underside this is a very nice and shiny razor!

Comes with an interesting travel case with tins for/including a tooth brush, soap on a wood end that has come disconnected, and a weird brush. Also has two blade banks (the ones with no back on them). I have tried to research the case but have gotten nowhere. It's nowhere near falling apart but has seen some use. Has a sort of musty smell to it and some rub marks that almost look like mold but aren’t. I have tried to clean it with oxyclean and toothbrush but it didn’t come off…. but it is clean

Asking less than I paid for it: $170 shipped CONUS or international for additional. Paypal only.

Nick on the safety bar and blemish on the underside. I don’t know what they are from since I never dropped it but they are there. The buyer described them as “if you run your eyes along the forward facing bottom edge of the solid bar it wasn't a continuous line.” Hopefully the pictures indicate the condition.

I wanted to chime in here, I'm the original buyer of this beautiful kit. The razor is in impeccable condition the plating is utterly perfect and has the natural shine that rhodium has, few wipes with a microfiber cloth even brought it out even more, words cannot describe this beautiful affect of rhodium on this magnificent razor. But there's more than just this razor to this, there's also the other items including a German 'pure bristle' tooth brush, soap, 2 vintage Gillette blades with 2 blade holders, hair comb (2 broken teeth), and synthetic brush. I personally was already toying with the idea of sticking a Wee Scot inside to see if that would update this kit for myself.

The nick on the bar and blemish is on the side where the "Made in England" stamp is. The nick is very very tiny but on the bottom of the bar so does not impact the shave experience since that should always be angled away from the user, additionally you can feel it but its entirely smooth going over it with the finger, so nothing to worry about its microscopically small. The blemish spot is plating loss, but is very small located on the underside of the razor so not really noticeable and can be overlooked. In all honesty I would have kept this but I've arranged for and just sent out today 6 razors to be replated for my collection. And being a bit anal since I just sent a batch to replating, I didn't want another to add to my list of to do's. I probably would never notice after a few days, but I really wanted a truly perfect one for my collection since I've been hunting on the side for months on a 66 to add.

Dustin's been a true gentleman about this, I cannot recommend him enough to work with. He's been extremely accommodating and letting me return this to him so I can't ask for anything more, I want this wonderful set to find a home as I envision this set having a renewed life to it in the most practical of ways.

Wishing this a speedy sale as this most deservedly belongs in a den or even for someone to update its components so it may travel again!

Really hoping to sell this today. If this doesn't sell in the next couple hours I'm going to put it on ePay for BIN w/o the extras. If you're tottering on it let me know and we can work something out! Smile
