How much are they now? I'm thinking maybe a little bit expensive for today's market tho' (for what it is).
When I first got into wet shaving a lot of people recommended them - they were about 25 bux then. But now, when you can get a good synth for 15-20 ish, I'm not so sure.
I usually watch for them to go on sale. I haven't spent more than $10 for one. They make a nice Christmas gift too, with a tube of proraso.
