I made the conscious decision to put this thread in the straight razor forum because I figured you all would probably know what I am talking about and therefore have better luck.
I am looking to buy a Swaty.
I know they are treasured but if anyone has one to sell, I am interested. I have absolutely no idea what a fair price would be.
I am not interested in ebay special straights or restoring straights at all. Therefore, I have or will most likely buy shave ready straights.
From the info I have gathered, a Swaty or some other type of fine finishing hone is probably my best choice and a great addition to my fine 4-sided pasted strop from Tony Miller.
