The bad news is that those of you who haven't been buying have missed the "ground floor" opportunity to buy nice razors cheaply. The good news is that with availability low, values are just going to increase. So look for and buy the very best examples you can find (originals, not the "rescales" or reground blades) - even if you have to pay more than you ever have before. Wet shaving and straight razor collecting is growing. Even the DE razor market, which used to be completely dead (you could easily find Gillette "Fat Boys" for a couple of dollars.) is red hot. Mark my words - we haven't come close to seeing the top of this market. If you are an investor, buy now and put a lot of money in your pocket later. If you are a collector, buy the things you love while you can - your opportunities are shrinking.
In the meantime, I will, as always, keep my eyes open for all of you - picking up both the good and the common stuff when I can.
