Hi everyone - 


I purchased these last week and unfortunately I have to let them go.  The prices include CONUS shipping via USPS Priority Mail with tracking.  If you are an international buyer, please PM me to discuss pricing (I usually cover the costs, but services and expectations vary from country to country).

   

(1) Mongoose "Alumigoose" Single Edge razor.  3 piece razor; overall length is around 4" and very lightweight (being made of aluminum of course!).  Mongoose razors are a beauty of design, having clean lines and the black coating really shows how streamlined a razor that utilizes the longer Feather Artist Club blades can look.  The "Alumnigoose" is, in my opinion, a more balanced razor than its stainless steel offering.  I am the second owner and while there are some signs of wear (i.e. a slight dulling of the finish in the underside of the cap) it is in great shape.  Included is the original box and a cartridge of Feather Professional blades with 19 blades remaining.  Since these have not been released on a continuous basis, there is no MSRP as far as I can tell (I have seen them re-sold for anywhere between $65 and $140).  I bought this last week off the BST here for $105 and that's what I'd like to recoup.  $105.

   

(2) Feather Artist Club non-folder SS replaceable blade straight razor with head guard.  Green rubber handle.  The razor and the storage guard come with a cartridge of Feather ProGuard blades (there are 9 blades remaining), which makes it a great package for anyone who is interested in trying out straight-razor shaving.  In my opinion the newer-designed SS head is an improvement from the old RC/DX style, which would create a bit of suction along the skin.  I also prefer the "kamisori" style and actually find it a bit easier for learning how to shave with a straight since the scales would always get in my way.  I am the second owner, but it is in great shape.  I also like the bright lime color!  These sell from anywhere from $65 to $120 for just the razor itself (the guard retails for $8 and the blades are probably worth around $15-$20).  I purchased this package for $65 and that's what I'd like to get back.  $65.

Please feel free to comment on my pricing or my descriptions in this thread.  For anything else, feel free to PM me.

As always, thanks for looking,
Josh

MSRP on the Alumigoose was $75 directly from them but they are selling well above that and aren't available from the manufacturer. I think your price is very fair considering what some have sold for.

This is the ceiling price that can be requested on TSN. The razor is not out of production per se...it simply is not currently available.

My apologies.  Please withdraw this sale; I'll repost the Feather razor.  I am loathe to have to resort to eBay for the Alumigoose but that MSRP is just too low for me to stomach.
