Just got a regular stainless steel and DLC stainless steel Hawk. Wondering if anyone else out there has these. Trying to decide which one I like better. Shaved with the regular SS version and used a Feather Pro blade a few days ago and was not that impressed with the results. Used the DLC version this morning with a Feather Super and got a wonderful BBS. Realizing that the 2 razors that I use a Feather Super blade with are both amazing shavers. The Colonial General Brass and the RazoRock Hawk DLC stainless steel. Any thoughts out there?

I have the DLC and like it a lot, if Joe ever sells the non coated version I would jump on it but I wouldn't get another one with DLC. Overall my first AC razor and really liking it

I like the light weight aluminum version best and in fact have an heir and a spare.

I didn't like the aluminum version. Too light for me so I was happy to get both versions of the stainless steel Hawk.

Just curious, is the head geometry the same on the DLC and the SS?  And is it the same as the aluminum?  I found the Aluminum too mild for my taste -- perhaps due to the weight of the razor.

There's always a variance of BBS due to material, size, weight, handle, blade, etc. I think the differences with the aluminum and DLC is due to the added weight, but the heads feels similar. Some people may get better shaves with heavier handles, others may not. YMMV.

I think the head geometry is the same. I have the aluminum version too and I think the SS versions are a bit more aggressive and the DLC was awesome with a Feather Super. I'll try the regular SS with a Super when I get back from vacation. My next 2 shaves before I leave will be with the new Blackland Sabre that will be delivered tomorrow. I really like the weight of the SS Hawks and love them compared to the aluminum Hawk. I'm not big on lighter razors so the brass General and SS Hawk are winners for me!

I think there is only one version of SS Hawk which is DLC coated correct?

RazoRock is based in Canada and they sell their stuff through Italian Barber. There are 2 versions of the stainless steel Hawk. One is raw and the other is DLC coated.

Joe has his machining done somewhere in Canada. Go to the RazoRock site and I think he talks about their machining process and where their machine shop is on the site.

Based on my readings, perhaps some are made in Canada, however I suspect others are sourced from elsewhere. It's a challenge to keep track when new so called limited releases are released so frequently.
So back to my original question, where is this Hawk SS made?

If you send a message to info@razorock.com, Joe usually answers inquiries pretty quick. I have been able to get one off stainless steel handles that may not be offered on the website by contacting them through that email and the questions I had about the stainless DLC Hawk that I had were answered pretty quick as well. Ask him where it's made and let us know. I just know both SS versions are high quality and incredible for the price. No pot metal razors coming from them and the CNC machining is done extremely well.

At the low prices they are charging, and the disclaimers about machine marks on the aluminum models, China or another emerging country has to be considered a possibility.

I prefer to purchase from vendors who are transparent, without the need for emails questioning basic things such as origin of items being sold. One would think this sort of information should be easy enough to display on the website. Personally, I think it's important.
I guess some folks like you don't care about such particulars; to each their own.

If the razors were produced in Canada or the US, that  would probably be prominently mentioned in the description because it would be a major selling point.  For me, silence as to country of origin creates a suspicion that it could be China or some emerging country with inexpensive manufacturing.

Maybe so. From the quality of the Hawk SS, Wunderbar, Black Mamba and the upcoming Mamba, They seem to be doing something right.

Many folks seem to doing something right, perhaps; and I guess many other folks seem to not care about basic details or information that are omitted.
