My level 3 very aggressive razor I bought from Brian at Charcoal Goods. Although this razor is very aggressive it is also very smooth and irritation free. I can easily compare it to a Muhle 2011 R41 but much much better. After all my years of shaving this razor cuts closer then any other I have ever owned. It's really remarkable how this razor performs. While shaving this razor is very loud but you get used to it very quickly. Not cheap at over $200 but fully machined from scratch. The workmanship is outstanding. The head comes in a choice of three level heads. Level 1, 2 & 3.

Very nice.  I like the way the lines on the head match the handle.

I have been looking at these for days. Very interesting.

They're making some very good looking handles and some really unique brush handles too.

Very nice razor. I've been contemplating buying one but hard to justify to the misses given after adding two timeless razors to the den.

The heads and handles are machined when an order is placed. I have another razor in polished brass on order.

I've always loved the looks of their razors but never took the leap. Have just never heard much talk in the forums. May have to pick one up sometime down the road.

I have a pre-production level 1 head. My favorite so far. It's gentle like a de89 but more efficient. Unfortunately, when matched with a Polsilver, my other razors tend to collect dust.

What do the three heads levels indicate? Aggressiveness I am assuming?! If so, how big is the gap between the 3?

Correct

level 1 - similar to a EJ head but more efficient

level 2- medium aggression

level 3 - very aggressive  comparing to a Muhle R41 or iKon Tech  but a very smooth shave

The website describes it as darkened antique brass.  They also offer the razors in bright tumbled brass.
