Yeah, just found it through their mobile site. My app only searches US listings. I'll have to see if that can be changed. Thanks!

It always baffles me how much older razors can go for. i mean, they are just razors, right! i understand the rarity of things, but this is surreal! Oh, well! Such is life.

Chasing the perfect shave or just people with far too much money and not enough sense.

No razor is worth that. That's just insane.

It's not about the razor anyway, it's about the person who holds it. Yup, my opinion.

FWIW, my most expensive razor (a gorgeous set BTW) shaves no better than my least expensive ugly aggressive razor. They are far from having a $300 price tag. I'll never spend that much for a razor and I won't be drawn into a bidding war.

It's not the bow, it's the Indian, gents.

You just needed to look further down ..there was at least 12 very good clear picturs..almost mint except a crack in the bakelite case on the side...still too much if you ask me..could buy 2 or 3 Webers AND a Tradere for that money.

I realized long ago I was not a collector. I'm not much of an antiques shopper anymore either. I go once a month to look for razors at a local flea market. If I find some good ones, great and if not, that's ok too. I am now down to 11 total. If they're not getting used, they sure aren't sitting around catching dust.

I suppose that for a real collector the Eclipse may be a value ... if bought for its shave (although good) that price is just surreal. I have one that I bought locally, just pure luck, for a ridiculous price. I would not even look at it with the prices asked in ebay.

I'd have probably given up after the first bid. I really want a Hoffritz Slant and I bid on almost all of them, but after they get north of about $60, I just give up. I'll wait for one to show up on the cheap.
