Oh boy, have I been waiting some months.... finally I got blessed by James D today.  I received my first Wolfman; a WR1-H7 dual comb in alllllll COPPER  Biggrin Biggrin Sleepy

I freakin love this thing.  So well balanced and weighted.  I love and respect all the razors in my Selection, but this one just made it into my top three and I haven't even used it yet.  Very excited about giving it a go either tomorrow morning or the next day.  Just wanted to share and publicly thank James for such a beautiful razor.

Cheers!

Oh WOW! Copper is the oldest smelted metal ( check out Oetzi's axe) with the oldest known smelting sites found in Africa and very magical. My great grandmother taught me NEVER to take pennies tossed in fountains ; payment to the 'good Nieghbors' for wishes but if found on the street to thank them- out loud which I still unashamedly do. Your razor is just plain stunning. Now you need a copper paella pan and Simplex teakettle.

Very attractuve, to say the least. Will you opt for keeping it pristine or let it acquire the patina that many find so beautiful on the roofs of various capital buildings? 

In my younger years I was highly involved in trap shooting. I had a friend who was the 'maintenance man' for a mutual friend that was similarly involved, but with the geld to take his hobby to another level. He had a living room whose 4 main walls were, floor to ceiling, covered with high grade shotguns from all over the world. And, he shot all of them on an ongoing basis. Cleaning and upkeep was such that he hired my retired friend to tend to his collection. By the time the process had reached the end of the 4 walls, it was time to begin again. The retiree looked upon his job as an annuity in perpetuity.

That copper Wolfman would be a fine start to a 'Razor Room'! I'm retired and available!  Biggrin

Tone, that's stunning. I'm copper patina green with envy. Seriously, congrats on the acquisition. If it shaves half as good as it looks, you're in for a treat.

Oh, if you find that it doesn't meet your standards, don't forget I'm your brush supplier. I claim first right of refusal. Lol.

The nearby Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center commissioned a huge work that hangs on the east facing wall viewed in full from the 101 freeway.
Said piece is a series of copper rectangles close coupled in a giant rectangle: what a roofer or shipwright of times past would have done. The bright
copper was also a huge reflective surface that blinded several drivers at 8AM and 5PM causing accidents, lawsuits and a rise in sunglass sales. It's now nicely patinated deep brown and objective of at least three copper scrap thieves who have been caught with extension ladders.

Did you select the standard or another blade gap for your beautiful copper Wolfman razor?

She's a beaut!  That WRH7 handle seems to be the most popular one these days--looks a bit lighter and more nimble than the others.  Put it on my wish list.

While I highly approve your MWF ceramic dish; check out copper cups and bowls from Turkey on EBAY. The vendor is easy to deal with and has excellent products. Turkish copperwear has always been held in high regard, and the best cymbals for drumsets are made there to a secret alloy formulae.
