dont let money stop you, go to antique shops, you may not have read it, but the most I have spent on any of my razors is 25, and that wasn't common, I found a lot of good ones for like 10-15, you just have to look
flea markets are good too
just look for Made in USA, England (will probably say sheffield, get it), germany
Total for getting started if you look hard enough, could easily be under 100 (correct me if i'm wrong)
you may want to have a razor found at an antique shop professionally honed though, i need to have mine done
if you want help with learning etc... check out this place
its great, helped me a lot

Plus it's awesome.
never forget the coolness factor
i plan on shaving with my dorm room door open to see who i can get to do a double take when i get my razors here
