Beware of eBay and other online sites
Beware of eBay and other online sites.
Straight razors are now really popular. In fact, they haven't been as popular in decades. That's a good thing, right? Of course it is. Except for the fact that the market is flooded with cheap modern razor-shaped-things and badly honed, often filthy razors on eBay and other online sites.
If you are interested in shaving with a cut-throat straight razor, you need to find a good razor. The trouble is, you can't rely on finding a good razor on eBay.
Seriously, eBay is probably the worst place to buy a hygienically clean, surgically sharp razor. Why? Well, a razor needs to be clean, restored and made shave ready.
Beware! Most razors advertised as 'shave ready' actually aren't.
