I did some eBay searches and the ones cheaper with shipping included were in worse condition. This one was cheaper than similar ones on eBay by $5 or more at the time. I don't know if that was due to eBay commissions or something else like like higher traffic numbers but, that Etsy purchase was cheaper than other platforms with a similar condition razor. With the cost of gasoline and the value of my time, I could have saved ~$5 on the purchase but, how much would I have spent on the gasoline to find it? When it is all said and done, the extra ~$5 I paid probably saved me several hours searching and ~$20 in travel expenses. In terms of "wanting top dollar", with great customer service and higher quality options, top dollar within reason doesn't seem overly expensive to me. Really, with a total cost of <$20 how much of a premium is it even at "top dollar".
