From a junk shop in Sydney:

1 X Gillette HD500

1 X English Flare Tip Rocket

Both in fair condition, but soaked in Oxy bleach, cleaned and polished, then lubricated. I have become much better at tuning razors up, too. Now these two are absolutely symmetrical and bang on.

I paid $5 Australian for the two. Yes, that's right. That's about $3.80 US.

The Rocket alone is worth 30x what you paid for both!  Nicely done.

Yes, my preference is the 'found in the wild'. I spend less time in antique dealerships. It's just how I prefer to go about collecting. It's a different kind of experience.

I don't need any razors, but obtain them to encourage friends to take up wet shaving and avoid consuming plastic that just goes to landfill. Sometimes I might see something on ePay (recently a Bostonian I am coming to grips with), but to me it's a bit like shooting fish in a bucket. Good if you need something to eat I guess, but not the same experience as 'search and rescue' Smile
