No, seriously, I was looking for a 2015 and the sears website was #2 in google.

Apparently they have the whole semogue line available. Of course, they're priced exhorbitantly.

They really do! Had to see it for myself. Price is doubled, of course, but hey, it's there.

Looks like they are using some partnered 3rd party sites that are charging a ton. I also saw Omega, Truefitt & Hill, AoS, Parker, etc.

I doubt they are a available at Sears stores; the site looks like its trying to be like Amazon, where they are "middlemen."

Sears and Target has been selling traditional shaving gear for a long time. But only online.

Guys- As referenced before..Sears is not selling these items. They are simply acting as a host for other vendors(see checkout when adding item to cart). In fact, Sears is not even generating a profit for hosting these sales. They are simply generating website traffic to Sears.com in hopes people will buy something else there that Sears sells directly.

The Targets here in the suburbs of Chicago have traditional shaving items like brushes (The World Famous $10 Shea 100% Badger) and shaving soap right in the store.

The brushes are sold by Hudson Mayor. Rather odd... The seller's rating is 2 out of 5 stars based on three reviews. Clicking on the reviews link shows only one review, 4 out of 5 stars, but with a very negative review. Whassup with that? It looks like the sears.com rating system is flaky.

Searching on Merkur, I found a Merkur 34C for $75. To be fair, the same razor is sold as a Merkur 178 for $39 from another seller. At least I think it is the same. An Edwin Jagger DE89L was also $75. Those people must be nuts!

Lovely... It was bad enough having forum-only nicknames such "HD" and "Heavy Duty", now the US distributor is renumbering the Merkur razor line to make things even more confusing.
