    This is the third time around for that listing. The first time it was a BIN @ $2100.00 and no bites. Then he put it up, as now, with a reserve, and it got to $1125.00 reserve not met. Personally I think he'd be better off doing the BIN at his asking price, whatever it is.

    Costs a lot more to list with a reserve than a fixed price, and for an item like that it is hard to find a motivated buyer.

    I'd buy it in a pair of seconds ............ the spirit is willing ......... but the bank account is weak ! ..........

    At least if you buy that razor, you can rest assured its worse cut will be made to your wallet rather than your face.

    I can't even see the $ ballpark that razor plays in from my bank account.

    Yup I don't really understand the reserve. Why not just start at it... a gorgeous razor for sure.

    At that price it is cheap.
    However, with unique pieces, it is only worth something if there is at least one person who wants to have just that particular razor.

    I mean if it was a big choppin 9/8 or 10/8 I'd buy it. For a 6/8 I couldn't justify spending more than half of its starting price.

    for any of you guys who has purchased a Timahagane razor its well above that price, but like people have said its all in who wants it. great craftsmanship in his razors and that steel is very unique, so for any sitting on the fence wanting one of his this is a great buy. Tc
