    A good guitar is a privilege, but a fine pen is a write.

    I hate shaving. I would stop shaving if I didn't like my sideburns so much.

    There are probably people here that spend $27.38 a day on things...

    like food

    like parking

    like commuting

    :)

    It seems like all of the money in the world.

    But it isn't.

    food seems a little more of a priority than a really expensive razor to me most mornings though.

    Well, it looks like now I'll have to finish the song I started a month or so ago: "I'm Not Gonna Shave Today."

    My only point was that it worked out to that much daily for a razor. I spend a lot more than that on my mortgage... but in exchange, it gets me a house. :p

    Of course, at the end of that 10 years, the guy who bought that thing will have a pretty rare work of art completely paid for. I'll have... most of a mortgage.

    Iridium is so precious that the main source of it is rocks that fall from the sky, and this is the best thing they could think of it make out of it?

    Obviously, they should be crafting tele saddles out of this stuff.

    I'm biased though; haven't used a razor in more than a decade.

    That part about commercial iridium coming from meteorites is bull pucky.

    Iridium is produced commercially as a by-product of producing nickel and copper.

    There is a connection between meteorites, iridium, and the discovery of the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) Boundary, but the concentrations of iridium associated with that impact, or any other asteroid/comet/meteorite impact are truly infinitesimal.

    The concentration of iridium in a meteorite is on the order of 0.5 parts per million.

    At least that is how I see things.

    Perhaps we could organize a group buy for a discount?

    Every few years I need a new electric trimmer, but I've only owned 3 in 38 or so years of shaving. That and a safety razor (which I've had for over 30 years) the blades for which last me months. I spend less time in front of a mirror in a year than lots of guys do in a day I bet.

    100 grand for a razor is crazy. That kind of money would go a long way charitably.

    Ymmv. Imho. etc.

    Peace, Mike.

    At least when you look at your bank balance you can slit your wrists in style.

    Definately worth the money. I mean, I would carry it around and whip it out and offer shaves with my $100K razor just to show people how good I have it! Who'd be better than me???







    Everyone.

    I have terrible beard growing abilities (as has been discussed here in the past), so this wouldn't be a very worthwhile purchase for me. YMMV
