Well I finally bought a Vintage straight razor off EBay that's in somewhat decent shape. Earlier tonight, I was outbid by someone at the last possible second on a Vintage Boker 131 and decided to quit trying to win auctions and go with the "Buy Now" feature only and I got a Genco Steampunk Wedge for almost nothing:
That includes shipping so I'm pleased with the ultra low cost of it:
I've got a Dremel so if it needs some work, I have no problem cleaning it up. All in all, I'll probably have about $20 to $25 dollars into it when I'm finished with it:
Saturday is the expected delivery date and I've already gotten a tracking number which was really fast. I'll have to see what else I can find when I have a much better budget. I'll also be picking up some Mother's Metal Polish later on.
