I have been wrestling with whether or not to announce the new Asylum project but figure...what the heck. We will be releasing a double edge razor that is a tribute to the vintage Darwin Standard razor. We are shooting for early March but, you know how that goes.

The DE razor will be called the Asylum Evolution razor and it will be machined from 303 Stainless Steel. Due to the idiosyncratic design of the razor, it will not accept other handles. Here are a few pictures of the CAD models.

Classic name for those biology people out there. Will there be other handles available?

If the post on the handle comes up through the top cap, and there is a hole in the top cap, how does it screw together?

Maybe I'm just not seeing it.

Screw threads are on the handle tip and the top cap center hole like the original Darwin razor on which this is based

Not yet. We will probably play around with a few finishes before we settle on one.

What type of a shave are you setting for this razor. Mild, med agresive, agresive. What will be the handle length?   Any idea of the price. By the way the razor really looks super spectacular.

Machining stainless steel into a hexagonal shape... someone likes a challenge (or has a CNC machine Wink ). Looking forward to see the finished razor.
