Phil,
It looks like most comments are favorable for the new plate.  If the study turns out positive, will you offer the plate as a stand alone for current owners?  I would prefer a more aggressive option since I usually need 4 passes with the current design.  Thanks.
Steve

Yes, I think so. It may take a few weeks after initial release before I have extra plates. I plan on talking with the machine shop on Tuesday or Wednesday.

I asked this in another thread. Would you be offering it in black as well? I missed the opportunity to be a tester, but would like to know if the black option will be available.

Thank you sir

No, these will only be offered in matte stainless and brass.

Easy solution. Buy a matte stainless or brass baseplate and use the razor two-tone. It looks pretty good black and brass.

I see you have both black and brass. Would you do me a favor and combine the 2 colors and post a photo so I can see what it'll look like? I saw the brass after I bought my black one .. I almost sold it so I could purchase it. But I do love my black one.

Did yet another shave with the prototype plate and again got fantastic results. This time I worked through everything without as much care due to being in a rush, but that didn't matter despite the aggression. It was again two passes, one WTG and another XTG and everything was off with no touchup needed. Skin was fine. No weepers, no red spots, no burn, nicks, or irritation. Love this thing...

I also have a black version and it would be cool to see what a brass plate would look like on an otherwise black razor.  Photos would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Sure, I'd be happy to do that. On my way out to work now, but will do so this afternoon.

Thank you for the photos, I really appreciate it. I'll have to see later what I'm gonna do. I'm still on the fence.

Thank you. That looks cool.  I think mixing the black with the brass is a great combination.

+1 Steve, it does look pretty sharp. Different and sharp. I prefer the shorter handle, so this for me is a sweet combo.
