    OK, the scales are made by Gold Dollar, the Double Arrow razor is not. Double Arrow has it's own website (I have it in one of my threads on Shanghai steel I think...) and it's own razors.
    From the GD website you can see their razors have GD tang stamps, etc. I believe it is a completely seperate entity.Judging from the lack of quality of the Gold Dollar scales that come on a DA, I don't think I want to try out the razors they produce!
    (Actually, that's not fair, as from the pics, the razors look to be as nice as the DAs, as long as they use a similar quality steel, they probably shave fine)


    I have contemplated ordering up a case of DAs though. At worst I could sell them off like stamps222 does at $9.5 each.
    Or offer them pre-honed for an extra $20.....
    add in a French, or Szechuan point for an additional $20.....
    thumbnotch upgrade $30......
    re-scaled in acrylic $30

    My suggestion, Seraphim is, act on it. Ratliff has the Wapi thing going, so he's the go to guy for that. You should do this.

    I went to the website, sent them an email asking for prices & quantity info.

    The model 66 is $1.88 and the model 300 is $5+( has jimps and a complete shoulder)

    The minimum quantity is 1000 razors!

    Anybody for a group buy?

    I'll go in on a group buy! Lets see if we can get one going!

    I think it's time to get a couple of razors fom Gold Dollar for evaluation and find out what their minimum qty is. The way I read it the minimum is 1000 razors with 100 razors per carton. The price spreadsheet they sent had a column title of MOG with 1000 under that.
    I will try and contact them monday.

    I would get a sample before I ordered anything. You might end up with 1000 zeepk quality razors.

    If this gets to the point that the samples prove worthy, please PM me about the group buy -- I'd kick in for 25-100 pieces depending on price/model.
