All of Charcoal Goods razor have been made from brass and copper plated brass. This is a new stainless steel version (shiny or matte finish) only available in level 1 head configuration. Available in limited supply next week. Mid summer level 2 & 3 will be for sale. The handle is a bishop 90 mm. Weighs under 100 grams. Looks great.

His brass razors go for $225 but no price on the stainless. They go on sale next week so will watch website. Polished might sell for more but not sure.

Probably matte finish level 1 head which is the milder of the 3 levels. Even so that is a great price. The brass machined razor is listed at $225.

I ordered same razor from WCS. However, the entire razor was engineered by Brian Twilley  and made by an outside machine shop. Cost on sale for $155 bead blasted finish.

I believe that Charcoal designed it.

Charcoal makes his in house. WCS farmed out the manufacturing for the ones they're selling. Different handles and different engraving too. 

That's my take on it. 

I don't know if the steel or the finished products have different specifications and tolerances. If they do, I doubt they're very much different unless they loosened up the tolerances a bit to make mass production more economical.

Designed and engineered by Charcoal Goods in collaboration with WCS. The handles (4) are similar to the Charcoal handles but the head is identical. I believe they are using a level 1 head but not entirely sure. They advertise medium aggression which might be a level 2. I will know when I get my razor Friday and shave with it.

The stainless razors have the Level 1 head. I snagged one from Brian's site, and am looking forward to getting it and giving it a whirl on Friday.
