    Default Grelot Fever

    If I decide I just HAVE to have one: 5/8 round tip hg, what is the average price to pay? That's if they make a model that matches what I said.

    You might need to go vintage to get those specs. Something like this:

    Vintage or new, 5/8 or 6/8 is fine with me. I just want to get an idea. Those are great looking razors!

    Has to be vintage to be 5/8. Saw one with worked spine sell on the bay yesterday - very nice condition. Selling price was 200 euro = approx. $265.

    New TI Le Grelots on Classic Shave for around $250 to $300something. Really pretty. Missing the crown mark.

    Do you mean the "bell" mark? Le Grelot translates to "the bell".

    Might be that. Referred to as crown on the TI page of the classic shaving site I think. Looks as much like a bell as a crown to me though!
