    Default Don't forget your local classifieds!!!!

    Gentlemen. I often check a local online Classified websight here in Canada called Kijiji for straight razor adds. It has produced 3 or 4 nice razors for me in the past, and has been bare for quite some time, at least in my area, with no adds.

    Today I checked it and there was an add for a Boker King Cutter, in very good shape, listed for $40. I called right away and talked to a man who was very nice. He asked me if I was a collector of old razors, and I told him I had a small collection of about 25 razors. He said he had a few others that weren't in as good of shape he would also bring when we met.........




    He brought 8 other razors......... I bought them all!!!!!!!!

    Those of you who have a week stomach, look away now!!!!!

    When I saw them all, and how good of shape they were in, I prit' near needed a shot of Xanax!!!

    Wow, amazing. Show and Tell today is turning me a little green with envy.

    Thanks for the tip on the classifieds. I hadn't thought of that. Craig's List is my next stop.

    God, Andrew, I'd give my upper teeth for one of the big ones -oh, I forgot, my dentist already optioned those.

    Great catch.

    Great score!

    Phrank, I just did a search on google with only a few words I could read fro the blade etch. It lead me to your frameback in the Butcher shop. "The Unequalled & Justly Famed Patent Frame back razor" Its just 7/8. Can't wait to get it fixed up.

    $140 for everything. like I said, lucky.

    Kijiji is useless here in Memphis. As I have stated on numerous occasions, this place is a waste dump, nothing good ever comes here.
