Received this video from my machinists today showing the creation of a Blackbird base plate, from hunk of stainless steel to functional, precise shaving tool. I am expecting similar videos for the top cap and handles in the coming days and weeks.

It's captivating to watch.

It would be cool to see a how its made video from start to finish on the razor. 

Thanks for posting the video. It was very intriguing. How long does it take to make a base plate?

This operation takes about 15 minutes for each part. The real bear is in setup and programming time. Thankfully the team at Wagner Machine is highly competent and experienced.

That doesn't seem that long of a time to make compared to how long the razors themselves will last.  

I'm glad I've already have my pre-orders in.  Hopefully operations continue to run smoothly for you guys!

Figure about an hour total for a full razor. Not bad considering it will outlast me.

Thanks for the kind words and support!

Glad you all enjoyed it as much as I do. The handles are running now. Just received a sample. Looks great. Hoping to have another video for you by early next week.

The new top cap is in and it is stellar with very tight and uniform machining marks. I'm hoping to have a video of it being machined soon. The entire run should be finished up this week or early next and shipping should begin in approximately two weeks. Very pleased with the progress and excited to start shipping out some great razors this month.
