    My good friend Ed pointed out that my last post may be seen as an invitation for offers. This is not the case. I will be selling (if I do sell, that is) on ebay or similar.

    Id just like to know the best way to approach selling on eBay, or, with the way razor prices are going, would it be worthwhile perhaps holding out for a couple of years. (I dont need the $, so can easily wait)

    Thanks MrMagnus, I appreciate your feedback. Admittedly I wouldn't know how to spot if a razor has been used or not. Will make sure to disclose that if/when I sell.

    I'll be forwarding this to gssixguns or Lynn for a cleanup, so will get their opinion. I wouldn't want to mislead anyone, not fair to the buyer and would hurt my eBay feedback, would be a lose/lose scenario.

    IMO i think you should keep that razor. It's a very nice looking razor and from a well known maker. Im sure it will shave very nice and think you should put it to use. Just ask the guy that hones it to use a layer of tape on the spine to provent wear on the spine since it has no wear. It's not a NOS razor it wont harm the value if you bring the edge back to life and clean it. Enjoy it as a shaving razor! sell it when you get bored with it just my vote.

    Be gentle with it, that's a family heirloom.

    After sleeping on it I have decided I wont sell at this point. Will keep it for shaving on special occasions once or twice a year. I just fear that if I sell it, will end up regretting it.

    Most I have seen have a box which reads 'Arrow Razor'. As to using it, are the pins tight?
    Look at the Movember auctions in the BST!
    Buy and/or sell for a good cause!
