This is a fairly new razor and handle maker who owns a machine shop in Alberta, Canada. His name is James and all his products are made out of stainless steel fully machined. So you get some idea exactly who he is James has been making the infamouse BBS-1 razors for Los Angeles Shaving Soap Company for the past year. He has his own website as Wolfman Razors. At present the way he works it is he sells heads and handles separately not as a set. All his prices are in  CAD (Canadian dollars) so if you live in the US your conversion price is a lot cheaper. All his razor heads and handles are 100% stainless steel. He sells three types of heads (standard bar, open comb and combination OC/SB) in high polish or matte finish. All the heads are currently sold out but he promises more in about two weeks. He has three types of handles which look pretty cool. When I get my SB head I will follow up with pictures but you can easily find his website using Google search. It's always good to see another player in our world of wet shaving. 
Coming soon a fully machined brass razor

I am waiting for the SB which appears to be identical to the BBS-1. All his stock is sold out except for a handle.

I had a little bit of back-and-forth with James, and I think it's important to interject that the SB is not identical to the BBS-1. It is redesigned from the ground up. The curvature of the cap is different, the blade angle on the head is different, and the entire head geometry is different.

James is still making the BBS-1 for LA Shaving Soap, so it stands to reason that this design would be something unique. I'm excited to try it out. I kinda wish I had had enough money to spend on both the SB and OC baseplates, but alas, Mrs. chamm keeps very tight controls of the purse-strings. (And honestly, it's probably for the better...)

Definitely watching the site.

What do people think of those hybrid OC/SB heads? Useful? Gimmick?

Looks like the blade gap is about the same as a R plate on the ATT. Beautiful razor, I could see getting in line for one of these.
