I would characterize the shave as medium aggressive but, it all depends on your reference point. The handle length is a bit deceptive because it actually goes through the head. It is equivalent to a razor with an 85mm handle -give or take.

The razor should be in the $185.00 ballpark. It is a bit early to give a definitive price as there are still some unknown variables such as cost for various finishes.

Phil thanks for the quick reply. Though i,m not an SE user outside of my Every Ready Streamline I will be purchasing the RX in the next month or 2. As for this new baby of yours it is just stunning and with your attention to shaving detail without question I just have to have one.

I do not think I will make a Titanium version; at least not initially. Perhaps down the line a bit.

That's a pretty razor , will supplies be limited Phil in the first offering or do you anticipate a healthy stock for the release?

Phil, since the razor has a non interchanable handle would a good compromise be a 90mm handle. Not to short and not to long. (I like a 90 handle)

Phil, it's a really nice looking razor. I'm guessing you're gonna get in my wallet. Again. I find it both interesting and pleasing that Art Deco seems to be coming back into vogue, at least a little. If you don't watch out, you're going to wind up as much more than a one man shop. Biggrin

Are you considering an OC head down the line?

Nice looking razor. I have seen new stainless steel handles on Etsy looking similar to your handle and claiming they will fit Darwin heads?

I thought that I was done once my Rx arrive.  Its a fools errand to think that I will stop acquiring new razors.  The coming Evolution and the Rx are as much art as they are functional tools.  I'll buy one just to have it regardless of how much use it gets.  The Evolution may not be an original design, but try getting an original Darwin.

Looks good. Will the cap profile be similar to the original?

Yes. It should be a very close approximation of the Darwin Standard razor.

I am working with the machine shop on a slant design based on a a fairly obscure vintage razor. I do have a design for an injector (basically a scaled down Rx) but am not sure there is enough demand for it. It is in my back pocket should I ever decide to go forward with it. A Gem style razor would be interesting and I have considered it. That said, I do not have any immediate plans for a Gem razor.

Thank you. The first run will be for 300 razors and I will go from there.

The initial release will try to approximate the original Darwin Standard. We may release a longer handle down the line a bit and I am sure that handle artisans will come up with an alternative as well.

Thank you. I probably will need to look at hiring some help. I'm a tweener right now...I could definitely use some part-time help.

I am not opposed to an OC head but I do not have anything on the burner right now.

Thank you. It took me a long time to acquire a Darwin. As soon as I used it, I knew that I had to make this razor.

Looks great.  I can't wait to see it in metal.  The name is good, but it is too similar the the PAA DOC "Evolution".  First thing I thought of when I read the name.  With the Deco style, I would call it something like the "Modernist".
