I realize good taste is in the eye of the beholder, but I saw a picture that shook my faith in mankind.  A beautiful Wolfman WR-1 SB with the WRH-7 handle with a Cerakote finish for sale on eBay for $1,300.  The price didn't faze me, but why would you paint over such a beautiful finish (either polished or brushed)?  I need a drink...........

The price fazed me and I didn't like the looks of the cerakote too. 

The charm of the Wolfman for me is in it's impeccable looks. I admit mine doesn't work as well for me, I prefer milder razors, but I cannot deny it's beauty and craftsmanship.

Its true that beauty is on the eye of the beholder, but was just tasteless.

I appreciate manual coffee grinders as well as shaving merchandise, and it sickens me to see someone destroy a truly fine piece of work with paint, electrical work or bobbly eyes. I am not a violent man , but these people should be beaten with the items they destroy.  A6

If it had free shipping I'd give a best offer of $5.  Laughing1

Did it also come with an adapter to fit a Fusion Proglide Power Flexball head?  Tongue

With a $1,295 sticker price, you'd think shipping would be "FREE" and sprinkled with some of that overnight delivery stuff.   lol

Shipping at $6.85 USPS Priority. . . . .doesn't sound like Dude (or Dudette) is insuring package.  But willing to ship it in a "Padded Flat Rate Envelope."   Laughing1

Not that it's worth what he's asking, but it's definitely worth less now. If you're going to coat it, at least pick a better color combination.

It is unfortunate that the owner did not understand that a large part of the value of the Wolfman is the beautifully detailed finish work.  There are a host of other razors that shave as well, but Wolfman is aesthetically at the pinnacle.  Sometimes you need to know when not to do something.

Maybe he regretted doing that and that's why he sells it at a fair price... lol
