As some of you may know from PM's etc, I lost my job in July. Severance helped out for a bit ... yada yada, but anyway, things were managable. Since Tuesday was my 50th b'day I decided I would go ahead and despite my job situation I would go on a buying spree with Phil and picked up a pair of Traderes and a Vision as I have been dying to try the Vision for ages. The Vision arrived, I opened it up and proceeded to enjoy a great shave with it. Aside from trying to figure out the ATG pass under my hefty honker I thought this is one of the best handling razors I have used.

Long story longer, I finished up the shave, splashed some Blue on my face and went downstairs to find my girlfriend walking in far earlier than expected. Turns out she was let go on her first day back from vacation. Worse still, no unemployment benies for her.

I know none of this is relevant to the sale, but I figured I should try to explain the rash of items up for sale from me lately.

On deck today is a used exactly once Vision purchased directly from the enabler. It has been cleaned and is a very smooth model. All original items included including the large metal case etc. I am not enclosing pics as the thing is brand new, if pics are required for a sale I will gladly post.

As a bonus, I am willing to swap out the normal (and still unopened) Merkur blades for a pack of whatever the buyer requests. I have a pretty large stash of various blade packs so as long as you offer me a couple options, I will include something you like and will use.

$140 shipped priority mail with tracking.

Here's hoping it sells as quickly as my S3S and Feather did.

I think the worst part of the story is if she had come home 15 minutes sooner, the razor would not have been used and I could have returned it to Phil for a full refund. Angry

I am certain some people would have done a return anyway and just said it was never used.

Thank you to everyone for the well wishes. This thread has gone totally off topic (it's my fault for not considering the warmth of this great community). I am going to ask the mods to archive this thread and I will repost in a few days with pics.
