    I see no reason to use eBay to acquire the more common models (Superspeeds, Techs, Slims) when they are available regularly here for far less money.
    Agreed. can we shake hands and put an end to this?

    That said... my intent was to suggest that he might as well spend $30 on a good NEW razor from a place like Truefitt & Hill. Where (with 20% discount code) many can be had new for under $30....
    What are you talking about Ebay? Sure the prices can be a bit high, but you're mostly bidding on stuff there. It's kind of the nature of the beast, don't you think? But keep your eyes sharp and you might get a good deal on something. Believe me, it's not totally impossible.

    And you always have the BST here. There's not a soul on here that I know of that would try to rip you off.

    Agreed.

    I have no desire to war with anyone on B and B. We should all be here to have fun, learn from one another, and by so doing hone our technique.
