    Default New razor BlackBird

    I tried searching for a post about this razor but couldn't find anything on the site. I saw this razor in a YouTube video and wanted to see if anyone had anymore information on it other than their sales pitch. From what I have found they haven't started production of them yet. I really like the looks of it.

    Yes, I have seen that also.

    If you are interested in an all stainless DE you might want to check out this Machined Safety Razors – Wolfman Razors . There are reviews from users on this one. If you place an order before 01 July 2015 you will miss the price increase Availability / Pricing – Wolfman Razors . Consider the current exchange rate between the US and Canadian dollars and you save even more. Obie has some comments here http://straightrazorpalace.com/shavi...pleasures.html on them.

    Sorry, post was directed more towards the OP. OTH the Canadian dollar is cheaper than the US dollar but I don't know if the taxes and duties are the same as from the US.

    I saw the Wolfmans they look nice to. I just like the all black for some reason. Thanks for the reply.

    There made by BlackLandRazors - and I believe the kickstarter link you found is the startup of this razor effort. I've seen pictures of the brushed stainless and the black version probably like you have. I don't think any have been passed around to get input that I heard, but IDK. I think the first razors will come out in October.
    You probably all ready knew all this though....
    I believe in the Kickstarter link you can ask them questions about the razor. I looked at it briefly a couple days ago and remembered seeing that. I would go straight to the soucre.
    If I had more funds I think I would help. Looks like a well built tool, but like you it would be nice to know more about it, and have feed back from different people that may have gotten to use this version.
