No doubt that eBay is the Wild, Wild West. However, just as there are blurry photos of crap being represented as shinola, there are gems (not Gems) in the rough there, too. I got a Boker Pearl for $17 - blurry photo and all. It was in very good condition. I'm anal about taking the pins out and buffing up a razor to eliminate any chance of corrosion, etc - didn't have to do that with this one.
The very worst deal I made ended up being a refund - and the seller just told me to keep the razor. He had not described it correctly and he owned up to it - and he said he would on his advertisement so that is a +1 for those who say watch for this kind of guarantee. Good idea.
I bought a 7 day set that was not very good at all - but couldn't get a refund so I lived with it. I bought another one that was described as 'they don't make them liike this anymore' - and when I got it, the razors were all NOS with no hone marks. Simply perfect.
I guess I am saying that it is not easy to lump sellers into categories. That still makes eBay a gamble - perhaps more so.
Finally, B/S/T is not completely nice. Watch closely and you'll see bad deals come along often enough. However, they are usually easy to see if you do your homework.
