    Sorry for the off-topic request but I have located a specific razor I have been searching for some time - but have been unable to contact the owner. He goes by the alias Shyster512 on another forum. If anyone knows him or can help me contact him, will you please let me know? (I have sent PMs on that forum and even enlisted the aid of the original eBay seller to contact him - but no luck.)

    He only posted 159 times in 5 years on the other forum. The username doesn't exist here. Good luck! I don't think Shyster512 wants to be found. His username suggests he prides himself on being anti social.

    Shyster- a person, especially a lawyer, who uses unscrupulous, fraudulent, or deceptive methods in business.

    What is it about that specific razor that has you focusing only on it? Is it a particular maker? Style of blade? Personalization? Used to belong to someone you know?

    If it is only that it is a particular size and style from a certain manufacturer, most razors were mass produced. Start searching for other razors that are for sale using the refined characteristics that you want and you may be surprised to find there are more out there. It could take a while, but odds are in your favor that you will find another. And when you find it, if it needs restoration work, there are plenty of people here who can help. (On a side note, if you find one that needs restoration, get someone like Glenn to look at it before you buy, because he can tell you if it can be restored.)

    I have over 30 straight razors but this is one that got away on eBay in 2016. I have found one from the same manufacturer that is somewhat similar but not the same (and I bought it.) Trust me, I’ve been looking for four years. :happy088:
