There's an opportunity to drop some cash and plenty it seems.

   They are limited  and I wouldn't blame a guy if that's what he wants to do it's supply and demand thing.
    I'm one that doesn't see a problem with somebody charging whatever they want for their stuff. 
They are nice razors that's for sure. 
  EBay will get a good slice too.

But, truth told, it really can't compete with the better made artisan razors such as Raw, Wolfman, H&S, BlackLand&c re shave quality. This a case of money chasing rarity for speculative purposes.

I suspect that this is a matter of opinion as I own Wolfman and H&S razors and the Paradigm Ti-2 beats both of these brands. The Paradigm Ti-2 is a smooth and highly efficient razor for me. Plus, it is a beautifully crafted razor, especially the first release that has the tapered handle, like the Ti-1 (which I also own). I admire and hope that Paradigm Shaveware has future razor releases as their head/blade geometry suits my shaving style and beard quite well.

Thankfully, I am not a collector, but do have a serious collection of what are now considered rare razors that are all to be passed on to my son when I can no longer shave with the caveat that they are not sold and are only to be passed to other family members. He likes my straight razor collection the best. He doesn't even know I have razors like a first batch LASSCo BBS-1 tucked away for him.

Well said  Happy2 I have to admit Paradigm Ti-2, Ti-V1 such a smooth shavers I my experience which I will pass down to my son and I really admire them very much!! Besides BBS-1 which is also another smooth shaver and I have joy to shave with…

Again YMMV but I personally really like Paradigms as my father had then before he passed away and now I know why he had them as he had sensitive skin and they are smooth shavers!!
