I have been receiving a lot of emails and phone calls regarding the progress of the Huntlee razor so thought I would post a brief update.

1) There is a bit of a Mongoose connection. The Machine shop that is making the Mongoose Razor will also be making the Huntlee Razor. Bruce Weber, Matt Glass and I are friends. Bruce stopped by my shop last winter, liked the prototype, and has been helping Lee and me make it a reality.

2) The razor will be fully machined out of 316 stainless steel and it will be a 3-piece razor with standard threading. It will utilize the Kai Captain Mild and Feather Pro blades.

3) The Stainless Steel prototypes are being worked on as I type. The razor will be very similar to our drawings and resin model but, we did have to make a few minor modifications so that it could be machined.

4) We do not know when it will be released but it will be in the not too distant future. We first need to test and approve the prototypes. It is likely a few months off yet.

Phil, that is great news and my well wishes to you for a successful product.

The delay could be a blessing in disguise due to the additional knowledge of the Mongoose design.
