    Hah! I also started browsing "seller's other items", but had trouble maintaining my curiosity when those scrolled across my screen .

    "vincent professional". Interesting brandname.


    Ebay sort of lets the air out of the seller's tires by showing a bunch of the same thing for a quarter of the price at the bottom of the listing. Strange thing going on with the ID of the listing, too. If my eyes aren't deceiving me, the seller ID has 1.5 million feedback, but only a few sales recently of things way overpriced (someone got taken for $22 or something for 24 common tea bags!!). Did they sell their business or ebay ID to someone else? Maybe it was stolen, who knows?

    Just plain weird, and even more weird is the fact that this listing was presented to me by ebay when I searched "hard arkansas stone".
    It could also mean very few of their buyers give feedback.

    My bad. There are a lot of people out there trying to get money for just about anything, even a pile of crap!

    Don't most razors have an edge? That belongs in the trash not for sale.

    Yep, it missing the bottom half. It was more than likely chipped or broken & someone cut it down. I've seen that done before.

    They tried to make lemonade out of lemons. This is the part that irks me, though...

    ...The razor itself is in excellent shape with minimal signs of wear. ...
    "Minimal wear"?!? If you consider hone wear accounting for more than 20% of the blade faces "minimal", then sure, that's barely noticeable!

    Ugh I hate to post this here, since it's a really nice razor, but just as a friendly warning gentlemen... those scales are toast, so if buying, count on replacing them immediately.

    and the worst part is someone will end up buying it, not even realizing that the heel was broken and ground off trying to make it flow a little.
