Probably not...I would have to outsource for a polished finish and it would add at least $80 to the price of the razor. The handle is very difficult/labor intensive to polish.

Although I find polished razors to be quite attractive, I personally prefer the brushed finish. This will definitely be on my list to acquire. Hopefully you will have enough made to keep up with demand! 

Although I completely understand one man operations needing to do wait lists and such, sometimes it becomes too much of an aggravation for people and it can be a huge turn off.

Never had a Darwin but this is very interesting. A replica with modern improvements. Can't wait.

I'm holding off buying a few razors because of this.

What a beauty!

I have a feeling that this razor will be a big hit... It is beautiful and an homage to a historical and highly desirable razor. Bravo, Phil!
