Todd Oppenheimer, a journalist based in San Francisco, just published a really interesting article centered on Above The Tie and Stan Hickam. I think you will find it really interesting.

Thanks for posting this article Phil. I recently received the ATT slant sb from my wife in November for our 15th anniversary. I am waiting for Toby from Triad to create the handle for it. But I have used it with one of his helix handles currently and love the shave it gives with personna med preps. ATT and there machinists turn out some very high quality razors and my slant has found a home in my permanent rotation.

That's a great piece on ATT. I read it the other day and it moved ATT to the top of my to buy list. Hickam has a good business model which I appreciate. He charges fair prices, especially when considering he has to outsource the manufacturing of the razors, and the best thing is they are widely available and pretty much always in stock somewhere (such as Bullgoose).

Excellent read! Stan is a great guy to interact with!  I grew up about 30 miles from his operation.

Very nice read Phil. Thank you for sharing this.
Stan is nothing short of a gentleman, great business model. My very safety razor was an ATT and he was a pleasure to deal with. Took the time to answer all my questions and helped me make the right decision.
I really enjoyed reading this article. Wish him much success

Did you have the same issues finding a machinist with tight enough specs to produce your razor?

Very much so. It took well over 6 months to find a company both capable and willing to work with me and meet my specs.
