Wow!

Thanks gents, those were the exact words along with a huge ear to ear smile on my face when I opened the package from DOC226, marvelous blade with a magically smooth edge!

Jason Voorhees, that's a great score as well with the SB Tradere with box!! Enjoy the great shaves it will give you!

Some of these handles are shameless copies of original designs by James of Wolfman Razors.
It's disgraceful, and this fellow 'Stork' will not get my business.
I respect the originality and integrity of true artisans/manufacturers.


I agree.

It's one thing to breathe life back into an old tried and true handle design that's been long out of production. An homage if you will.

Take a design still in its infancy being what maybe a year old. Not cool at all to me.

James tried to be different. Succeeded now is being copied.

Society is full of imitators.

James is an innovator in his original designs.

I know this guys (Stork company), they began in one russian forum. At the beginning of their business they tried to make "a handles" not "a copies". But later money won (sell copies easier that  to create a new design) and now they make only copies. It's a shame. As for me , i will NEVER buy their handles, I don't like copies and I don't like imitators.

So my inlaws took a vacation over to California and were in the Pasadina locale.  I had them go look for my unicorn and they came back with this.  I was quite happy.

Why?

We don't condone blatant copying of other artisan/vendor's creations, ie current production items.
It is not in the spirit of what our community is about.
