I guess if I were a collector and really wanted the original BBS-1 to fill a spot, I might consider paying a higher price, but nowhere near the prices being asked today. Given that the BBS-1 is hinted to be back into production as a second generation revised model, I just do not see the rationale of the outlandish prices being asked. I have an early numbered BBS-1 that was always intended as a gift to my son when a special event arose (which has, and he's never seen nor does he know I have the BBS-1, so he'll be surprised). Many thanks to John Brown of LASSCo whom was responsible in playing a major role in bringing the BBS-1 to fruition, and in turn, Wolfman Razors.

Although, if and when I buy mine I wouldn't sell it.  This is a fun hobby for me, not a business.

A couple weeks ago I took receipt of a Dual Comb in .86 gap.  After having used it a bit, I'm pretty certain this is the most efficient razor in my den.  I'll eventually do some side-by-side comparisons but it is more efficient than a Timeless 95 and just as smooth as a 74 gap.  It may come close to Timeless smooth.  The blade feel on the 86DC is impressive as is the closeness of the shave.  It's amazing how long my face stays stubble free.

Haha  Imagine if used 0,86, neither I, my children nor grandchildren would ever need shave again - presuming any skin remained....

I have a polished WR1 that got some scratches on the top cap, no idea how. Should I use any special method to try to buff them out? Or just simply use the Wolfman cloth that came with my razor?

I also have a brushed finish WR1 with scratches, but that finish hides them enough I'll leave them be.

Does 316L steel just scratch easily or am I just unlucky? I've been extremely careful using and storing them, but I guess it's unavoidable.

I just received my brand new razor and am curious to know if it’s easy to take out scratches

One of my WR1s has a 0.80mm gap. It's very aggressive but surprisingly smooth. I've got to be careful with it, but not overly so.

I'm not entirely certain I'd enjoy 0.84, but I'd like to try it.

Almost all the latest razors come with this "notch" on the stove ... is this normal? Previously, this was not ((((

I don’t know the actual reason, but I bet it allows for a better fit between the head and the handle.

It is not on any of my stainless base plates, but it IS on my polished bronze set.  I believed it to be a defect, but perhaps it is intentional on the exotic materials.

I have noticed the same thing on newer razors. No clue for the reason or origin.
