    Default The Wall Of Shame

    A place to post those monstrosities we run into on the bay

    Gents, this is a sticky thread devoted to ebay auctions. If you post a link please include a photo of the "goods" and no seller names in your text. This way we are not vendor bashing, and there will be a photo example to make sense of the thread when the link is long gone.

    Only ebay auctions please.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Looks like some guy finished grinding his lawn mover blade then figured he'd give that old razor a new edge.

    Got this beautiful Wade and Butcher, Celebrated Hollow Ground Razor, nothing was specified for the size, was very dirty, scales were shot. It arrived and my jaw dropped, immaculate condition, aside from filthy, and virtually an 8/8, maybe just a little shy.

    After some light cleaning, a tiny, thinner than a hair, maybe 1mm long hairline crack....no good to me....into the box it went, where it stays now. Very hard to see, marked it with some blue marker, the crack is below the blue.

    Sad end for such a beauty.

    Looks like it had been used as a can opener and the hook broke off

    What the devil is the deal with all those revisions?!!?
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It's difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    That is a really cool straight razor desisgn. I wonder why none of the other makers made them like that? It would be a little hard to get the angle right you know with the lack of spine and all
