    According to the Department of Health, Western Australia:

    Cutthroat razors with a non-changeable blade are not permitted for use in any commercial hairdressing establishment in Western Australia due to the risk of spreading blood-borne viruses such as hepatitis B and HIVAIDS.

    After use, micro-organisms and small, invisible quantities of blood and bodily fluids can remain on the razor blade. Simply washing and disinfecting the blade will not destroy these micro- organisms and will place clients at risk of infection if the blade is reused.

    There's some particularly nice Japanese vintage razors on the bay at the moment.

    I bought a razor from that euro seller once (he uses the same little stand in every picture) and I'll never buy from him again. Beautiful looking but deffinanty not shave ready and such bad micro pitting in the metal that it coundnt be honed. If it can't be honed by some of the masters here than it's junk. His other razors may be better but I won't take the chance again
