    Prices have actually been pretty stable. They were often going for more several years ago. $300 range is a decent price for this rare razor.

    Sure about that? I have only seen a couple in the last year and a half. True there has been a flurry recently with 2 full sized Darwins in the last month but typically it is months between the auctions on ebay even checking all the international sites.

    yes im sure... you cant miss that design... besides for me the design is one of the most *&%$* i ever saw :) i probably saw 10 up to 15 darwins on the bay last year. i'm not familiar with special types cause for me a darwin is a darwin :)

    ebay at under 200 last 1 week. but the Darwins at this point are being gobbled up so the price is going up.

    Darwins are not mass produced like the Eclipse were, they are hand made and in less masses.

    Sure the highest number entered will always win. Though sniping avoids bidding wars, where multiple people keep increasing their max bid. On a Darwin, there would definitely be a bidding war.

    A Darwin is.........a Darwin. Until you shave with one and have the "well I'll be damned" moment, it's gotta sound like crazy hype. Yep, I'm a user.
