    Default Worth bidding on???????

    I really like this. Should I bid on it?

    And if so how high would be worth it?

    Valuations aren't allowed here on SRP...so it all depends on how much it would be worth to you. It is a nice looking specimen though

    Yes, that certainly is in great shape, looks brand new, tang stamp is perfect!

    It really looks perfect, almost new, you seldom see blades this old in that great condition, hence why it already has 25 bids.

    Nice big blade as well, it's definitely a keeper and an excellent blade, now, as Catrentshaving said, the only question that remains is how much is it worth to you?

    Your only problem is that you just alerted the forum about this razor, now you may suffer the consequences of a bidding war.

    That's ok, I'll bid a negative value and bring the price back down

    Dexter,

    A useful tool for Ebay bidding is the completed/sold listing option in the search tab. Doing a search for Wade and Butcher 13/16, you'll see that such razors were going for around $45 to $127 recently.
    Wade and Butcher 13/16 | eBay

    From looking at the auction you posted, I believe this razor will sell for more because: (1) the razor appears to be well photographed and (2) the razor looks pretty clean and polished.

    So as others have said, the real question is how much this razor is worth to you. Let's assume that it would take a winning bid of $150 +/- $20 to win the auction. Is the razor worth that much to you. For that amount of money, you might be able to buy other nice razors such as various Dubl Ducks, Filarmonicas, C.V. Heljestrands, Thier Issards, Dovos, etc. Is this particular razor worth more to you than other razors you might be able to buy for a similar amount of money? That's the question you need to consider.

    If you do a search on here for the seller I believe you will find that many have paid a steep market value for razors from him. He has a following due to the quality of his work and as a result of that his end product. I would also guess this one will go above average on past sales. Some will pay extra for a worry free product no matter what product you are taking about. Others prefer sweat equity, and some don't require all the glitz and glamour.

    I haven't used a razor that small in so long, I'd probably just use it for cutting tomatoes. I'd go up to six bucks, but that's about it.
