    The blurb

    Created in late April, and soon to be available. The target price will be $225 CAD (about $165 USD).

    Why offer another razor when there are already availability issues at Wolfman Razors? This razor is not extensively hand finished. After machining, the process is straightforward and finishing work is strictly about function, not aesthetics.
    Aren't you a little too busy for this? In terms of hand finishing, yes. The machines are able to keep up with ease, while finishing work continues. Machines have often been idle, especially since another machine was added a few months ago. This razor will occupy the extra capacity of the existing machines. There is a shop employee who will be handling production.
    Details: 316L stainless steel, featuring a somewhat large but hollow handle. The overall weight is 90 grams (head 28, handle 62). The handle is 85mm long, and is just under 16mm diameter. The blade locates on the base plate, rather than the top cap. Blade gap is .69mm. The shave angle is somewhat shallow.
    Availability: Initial feedback has been positive all around, so production is under way. There won't be steady production for a couple of months, until around mid summer. The intention is for this razor to be readily available, as it won't have any options. The handle comes with the razor head.
    If interested, email guerrilla.razor@gmail.com (There won't be much time for replies to emails until tomorrow)

    That head will look fantastic on my Maggard MR 5 handle!

    This seems similar to what 'The Varlet' did in introducing the 'Everset' brushes.

    Looked at the pictures and sent email.

    Currently using a spinner to reduce anxiety and fidgeting during the wait until mid-summer.

    Luckily I'm not keen on the handle, head looks good, polished still looks better IMO.

    It sure would be nice to have an "obtainable "and "affordable" Wolfman offering. Count me in!

    I too like how the head looks and the blade position on the base plate makes it even more interesting. Not really a fan of the handle, though.
    A move like this is understanable but I doubt they'll be able to put up with demand for the first few months (years?).

    Sharing the general sentiment - head good, not too keen on the handle. And I too dropped him an email yesterday evening. Thanks for posting, B!
