    Couldn't pass when I found someone willing to part with the razor and original key. A little remorseful at the price, but my paypal balance covered it with some crafty ebay work.
    To much $, about right... anyone accrual think I got a good deal? Price includes international shipping and goods and services fees... the guy was a referral, but when he asked for friends and family I was like "no way, no how, I'll cover the fees". About $6 for the piece of mind.

    Nice score!

    I've had one and it is a cool razor, but I down size periodically, so I found it a new home.

    They are a cool collectible but not something I'd want to shave with on a regular basis. They were designed to keep patients from killing themselves first and shave second.

    I think they used a standard tech head and baseplate, only modified the attachment mechanism. They came in 10 packs with only one key... original key with this one so I went for it.
    I'll be curious how it compares with my 50s ball end tech...

    It a basic post WW2 Tech ..... I shave with them quite often, never had a bad shave with a Tech.

    Stores sell lots of hammers ..... it's not the tool that makes a skilled carpenter, but experience.

    That's is a lightweight zamac version of the bras ball end tech.
    Regular Tech is batter shaver, IMO. Psycho is only worth collecting, IMO.

    The one i bought is not a Zamak head. Later ones are zamak.

    Congratulations, I have one with original key and use it occasionally. I'd definitely sell it for $200 net to me though :D

    That's a neat collectible and fairly rare, so I can see why you spent it. We expect pics when it arrives.

    Congrats and welcome to the psych ward! I enjoy shaving with mine. $200 is a little steep but if your are ok with it then that is all that matters. Here are my six with one repo key and one original. 4735483A-34BD-4B1F-BBA4-10971888E5EB.jpeg

    Curious of what number you consider reasonable and not too steep with an original key?
