    That's kind of what I was thinking; I was almost lured by the low price and shiny new blade! I'm looking for cheap blades to practice honing on, but I'd rather get something I know is worth the effort. There's something messed up about Mickey Mouse standing next to it, too. I guess the double arrows that are about the same price are a much better deal.

    Yeah, considering that the person have chosen to use a trademarked figure in his picture it probably means that the manufacturing process/design ideas is at best lacking compared to Dovo or Issard.
    I base this on the assumption that Disney would not bother going into the straight razor market.

    And as if that wasn't enough, the seller is in Canada, you will have to wait a few months for you stuff to arrive The Canadian Post is the slowest I have ever encountered...

    Actually, there is a possibility these are the same as the Chinese Double Arrow -- the markings inside the Double Arrow scales turn out to translate to something like "Gold Dollar." (See this thread.) Couldn't say for sure, though, and anyway the Double Arrows are cheaper. I would be interested to know if these have the same markings inside the scales.

    Default The real name of Double Arrows!

    The company that makes the Double Arrow is called "Gold Dollar". I found the name inside the scales actually, in Chinese. The characters look like this: 金元.

    The words literally mean Gold Dollar, and here is their website! electric hair clippers,scissors,hair clippers,hair scissors-Best hair clippers and scissors manufacturer in China

    Other link?: http://www.gdl.cn/en/index.php Looks like a nicer page, more like a company page.

    OK so maybe the model name isn't Gold Dollar, but knowing the company name is awesome! Their site has a lot of really nice looking razors on it as well.

    Pretty cool stuff. I'm in Chinese 2 right now in college, and I'm so excited I figured this out! Looks like they also make some other nice looking razors!

    Thanks for the post!

    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?

    Will they sell you or send you a sample before you commit to buying 1000 of them? I'd want to be sure the steel is actually worth a crap -- remember it IS actually "made in China" FWIW.....

    I'm a nebwbie, but even I have enough of a case of RAD to consider oh, 50-100 or so of these (depending on the price of selected model), if they are decent --- even if the scales are crummy they are fodder for tinkering and customizing!

    Nice catch! Anyone taking this to the next level?
