That's correct. Now that I have inventory I can get to work polishing.

Today was my first ever shave with a SB polished head (GSB blade) and I felt like wow from the first stroke. Superb razor for me - right amount of effectiveness/aggressiveness and quite smooth. Zero weepers. I am only hoping it will get smoother with use. Congrats to Shane for an awesome razor.

I'm happy to hear that, Roopesh. Congratulations on the new Blackbird!

Isn't it just. I'm now 5 shaves in with my SB and loving it. Smile

Polished OC Blackbird has just landed. I'm very curious to compare this plate with my recently acquired SB.

Well, you've created another superb razor, Shane. First use of the OC plate and, again, I couldn't be more happy. I would say the OC has the edge in efficiency, the SB, the same in comfort. The difference is so minimal, though, as to be insignificant, for me. I love the Timeless OC in its smoothness from well rounded teeth. I admit that I was concerned the Blackbird would not compare with its more numerous and more pointed teeth, however, I could not have been more wrong. Yes, I do give the smoothness edge to the Timeless OC, but, again, the difference is surprisingly minimal. Visual appearances can be so deceptive sometimes and this is a perfect example. I had two days' growth, this morning. I'm typically a daily shaver and interested now to see how it performs in a daily routine. Stay tuned.
