    You are going to be dancing with the devil learning with that spike tip. Not that it would stop me from buying it.
    One time, in band camp, I shaved with a Gold Dollar razor.

    I love my Blue Wonder, would never get rid of it no matter what, and
    the one you're thinking of buying is in far better condition than mine.
    Don't let someone beat you to it !!

    Didn't win unfortunately.

    Some crazy jumped in at 30 seconds and jumped the bid up 100 over what it was running at, kind of wonder if it was the seller trying to get retail out of it.

    Most auctions go that way for razors...price stays the same, then within the last minute to 30 seconds, to 15 seconds, the pro's, or the snipers as I call them, jump in and bam, it jumps then it's over.

    Was a hard lesson for me to learn, now if I want to win a razor, that's the way to play...

    That's not even considering the bots that are out there.....

    You are looking at that crazy. I was looking on the bay yesterday and saw it on the first page that came up. I would not blame the seller.

    Congratz, i figured people in the thread would find it. looks like you had a little competition up there on those last bids though.

    Was simply to rich for my blood, as nice as it was there alot of other nice razors at that price so no love lost.

    @ Phrank oh believe me i was sitting there ready to snipe it out at the last second, but i did have a limit on it. and its went way above that limit before i could even bid

    Cool...I feel for you.

    Couple of weeks ago I had my eye on a razor for like 6 days, just lurking, waiting to spring.

    Had the bid all lined up, pulled the trigger with 20 seconds to go, and just got hosed! Multiple flashes of, "You're Outbid Again!", and then it was over.

    I was pi$$ed off, and somewhat downtrodden as I really wanted that razor...but that's life in the Wild West of the Razor World!!!

    Good luck next time...and always keep an eye on the Classifieds!!
