Wow, that's nice, excellent find!

I wouldn't mind having one if it's reasonably priced.

Any DE razors among those items?

btw, grab the Coca Cola yoyos as well (if they aren't too expensive), collectors on BoB really like them. I sold a couple of my old ones last year.

No de, just the blades, I left to draw cash. Think it's R300 for the blades and R400 for a straight. Haven't googled it yet, he has boxes of dinkys too

Loaded up the slim with one of these pal hollow ground blades, they're still shrink-wrapped

Those yo-yos where R250, not R25

Also found a tr cadman bengal, a few Sheffields and some unknown German

:thumbup:

Those blades sound interesting. The NOS Wilkinson blades I found last year were not very sharp.

That price is about what those yo-yos go for.

I'm going to sleep on the excelsior (or at least Google them first) I'm still keen on the Tennis straight - I posted a pic in the straight discussion - a bit worried about the rust on it. Besides, I'm very happy with my Henckels and do still need to sort out my Sheffield and Gong

The scales on the excelsiors are celluloid? and some has deformed, he has a massive collection of these NOS Excelsiors, likely will sell off to other collectors/vintage stores.

Also about 10 boxes of the PAL 20x4 packs, still shrink wrapped.

Strangely enough, I've seen these razors before. I just can't for the life of me remember where... :oo

The store owner of Collector's Cafe can be quite expensive. The only DEs I ever found off of him were the old Lion razors. R45 a pop..

Agree Chrisvo, my first DE was a Lion I picked up from him - my dear wife bought me a NOS Henckels for R400, which I think was a bargain.

R395. Also listed on Gumtree, more pictures there. The blades do not look particularly well made. What's the opinion of the experts?

I couldn't find a lot of information about them, some are in good nic with straight scales, all need a clean. Some aren't, after looking through a good couple, I left without one. I'd rather add a few Rands and get something else.
This tin box is chock-full of these razors
