Antique straight razors are valuable to people that enjoy collecting them for display and shaving. As of 2014, an antique straight razor has an average price value of between $5 and $50 without restoration. Completely restored vintage razors are often priced between $50 and $325.

Vintage straight razors vary in condition and design, which affects their value. Some old razors are in poor condition and require lots of restorative work. For instance, it is common to find razors with dark patinas, pitting, chipping, rust or dull blades. The value of a damaged vintage straight razor can be improved by sending it to a razor restoration expert.
