    Default anyone know about "nomi4sad" who is selling damascus razors on the bay?

    So I was looking around the bay for a possible new razor when I find a seller who is offering hand made Damascus razors, even has a few combo packs with some silver tip brushes. These razors LOOK very good, but you never can tell 100% from just a pic. So I was wondering if anyone here has dealt with this particular seller before and had some feedback on the quality of his product. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Keep having epic shaves my brothers!! :-)

    Found the seller, and like the look of the blade, but you could get a Ralf Aust 5/8 round point for that price and know what you have is good.
    I think Pakistan razors are on the do not buy list, I would not recommend it. Although it might make a good display piece............expensive one IMO

    Steer clear.

    Razor shaped objects IMO

    Straight razor designs carries Ralf Aust & so does Shaving shop, between the two you should be able to find something that trips your trigger

    When I get the 33.7 trillion Dollars from my Nigerian bank account I didn't even know I had... then I will buy Pakistani razors for you all!

    Someone help me out with the detail here - respected custom makers charge about what for a damascus blade: $750 - 1500? And this guy is charging....?

    Bit off topic but has anyone bought the scales he makes? They look sweet and well made in pics but would be good to have some feedback from someone firsthand

    I don't understand the fascination with Damascus razors. I've heard from those who own them that true damascus razors are too soft to keep a reliable edge. Would much rather spend that type of money on swedish steel.
