1275 - what on earth makes this particular razor see that value, the handle?

There were only two bidders in the eBay auction. The final price went much higher than I had expected. It's not quite as rare as Paradigm, Raw, Janus or BBS-1 razors. 
Perhaps it has gone that high owing to may be its handle design, razor unique aesthetic or maybe bidder were curious about how well the Gen1 Lv2 shaves.

You are correct. I had the same thought after posting it here; I should have put it in the other thread. Not rip-off, just auction.

I guess when someone runs an auction, and it is bid on fair and square, you can't say they are gouging.  They are getting exactly what the market dictated that item was valued for to that other buyer.   I don't understand it, but I don't need to as i didn't buy it or bid on it.

True. I guess I assumed that was the "buy it now" price lol.

Still, this is off-topic. If the forum moderators ( Dave in KY , andrewjs18 ) would like to move the index to the relevant thread, I think it would be better.
I think this is the relevant thread:

Perhaps it has gone that high owing to may be its handle design, razor unique aesthetic or maybe bidder were curious about how well the Gen1 Lv2 shaves.

Or, that there is a limited number made and will never be made again. I wasn't around when the LA Shaving razors were first being sold. If I was and I passed, I would be kicking myself.
