    I have two great straights for sale here:

    The first is a Filarmonica #13 Inox. It started out at about 13/16, now it's a solid 6/8 because it had some serious damage to the edge and needed a lot of honing out. Thus there is some hone-wear as well.

    Otherwise, the condition is pretty good--some superficial scratching on the blade and spine, and the scales are a little discolored in parts but the pins are tight, the blade centers well, and the gold wash is still looking good.

    I call this razor MOSTLY shave ready. It is smooth and it shaves, but on a scale of 1-10 (10 is a velvet squeegee, 1 is a warm chocolate bar), this is about an 8...before I send it out, I'll try to bump it up a bit more.

    $130 by paypal, Worldwide EMS expedited/insured shipping included.

    The second is a Japanese made folding straight, ABC.

    It's a big 13/16-7/8 blade, stiff hollow ground blade of Swedish Carbon steel. It's got some pitting/staining, but not serious damage. The scales are two-colored translucent/pearlescent acrylic....beautiful, really. There are some stable cracks at the hinge pin, though, and the inlay has some glue around it from a not-so-well done repair.

    The edge on this one is really freaking good. I honed it and finished on a nice Japanese natural, and while I'm no honemeister it was one of those approved by my barber/teacher and it shaves like a champ.

    $65 including EMS expedited insured shipping worldwide ($50 standard airmail).

    I'd be all over that if I hadn't just bought one.

    Filly's definitely live up to the hype and Jim is a great guy to do business with.
    Someone buy these!

    Oh man, if I only had the funds right now. SWMBO would kill me if I got that right now, but I want one. Need to build up that paypal account!

    I'd be all over this, but I promise my self I'd keep myself from buying even more razors.

    Good luck Jim and congrats to the future buyer.

    I might be crazy, but it's such a SWEET madness.

    Nah, the Inox was 3/8--no regrets there. I did sell a Sub Cero that I should have at least tried shaving with, but oh well. There will be more!

    As for Fillies, I'm full up. I got a Barbas Duras, and it is the Bee's knees...this one just doesn't do it for me aesthetically.

    I did rehone it last night and bumped it up a tad--let's call it an 8.75 now.

    I've owned quite a few ABC razors and I can't recommend them enough. Great buy.
