I picked up these four razors at an antiques fair yesterday here in Sydney:

1x FatBoy in excellent condition
1x Made in England Fat Handle Tech, excellent condition
1X Wardonia Sheffield "All Metal", very very tiny crack on handle, c1930?
1X probably "Doover" Australian razor, 1940-ish, unused by the look of it.

Total cost? In US dollars? About $18.50 Smile

The seller also asked me if I was interested in brushes, but didn't have them on-site. He said "Prepare yourself. I have heaps of old ones still in boxes...some of them have those heavy yellowing handles, you know? What about vintage shaving soaps? Are you interested in them, too?"

Taking a trip to see him in a couple of days. Fingers crossed. Will post gloat pictures if it all goes swimmingly Smile

Geez, that would have been a steal for the Fatboy on its own. Congrats on the great pick up!

I'm lucky with Fat boys. The most I paid for one was $40. I have 3 now, and weirdly, they are all dated G2.

I can find little information of the Wardonia, actually. Anyone have any experience with this "All Metal" version? It may be the first in the Wardonia razor series.
