    I just bought a Revisor and it was delivered yesterday. I still can't completely give it my endorsement because I have yet to use it. But others here would gladly do so. Here is a nice option for you and its right in your price range. Don't forget, you get 15% off (taxes). I would think that after shipping and everything, you would be right where you need to be.

    The last I heard Hen and Rooster was bought by Frost Cutlery and they don't exactly make quality stuff. I think the price tells you all you need to know about that razor.

    Yes they are. Supply and demand are not always equalized for reasonably priced quality new straight razors but this shortage will be over soon. This is a good opportunity to explore some good vintage stuff.

    Look. Vintage razors provide the best shave, IMO. Ebay is an excellent source. Shave ready and not. Lots of junk as well. What YOU need is for someone to help you sort out the stuff. I am a mentor, I can help. So can any knowlegable members here. Post what you are thinking of buying. Leave the prices out of it. Quality will find you! Best advise I can give.

    Welcome to the 'Place'.
    You can buy online in Oz for less than $200. Mensbiz is one shop that comes to mind that has Dovos currently in stock.

    I just checked and they still have this in stock for $99: RALF AUST - RAZOR MANUFACTURE SOLINGEN 5/8" BLACK. I got mine today (ordered Saturday) and it is terrific! I'm still a newbie, but it is the first shave I've had where the razor just glided and cut my beard BBS.

    I saw that, was going to pull the trigger but went with a Dovo 6/8 Best at RoyalShave instead.
