Wanting to buy a Blackbird OC razor with the 85mm handle. 
Looking for the current version and not the kickstarter version. 
Either machined polished finish 

Wanting to buy a Wolfman WR1 .67, .74, or .80 gap, 
either polished or brushed with the WRH7 handle
I know this is a longshot but really want to try this blade gap 


Let me know, Thanks!

It's not my business, but I use a Blackbird OC (which I love) and a Wolfman OC in a .74 blade gap. In my experience, the Blackbird is much more efficient and aggressive than the Wolfman,  which I don't use much anymore for that very reason. The two razors you mention don't seem to have much in common to me.

I’m not a fan of the standard gap wr1 so I thought maybe the .54 would be a nice milder shaver. Just want to add variety to the den

Makes sense. Good luck with your search. You inspired me to use my Blackbird OC this morning!

What's the difference between the kickstarter version and the current version Blackbird?

I could be wrong but i thought the kickstarter version had some rough edges on it vs the current one but once again i could be wrong

The first approximately 160 Blackbirds had sharp base plate corners. Since January 2016 all Blackbirds have been made with rounded base plate corners. So the vast majority are rounded.

Ahhh ok. Mine had sharp corners, but I mailed it back to you, and you sorted it out for me =)

Bump, also just looking for a brushed wrh7 handle alone if you don’t have the head to go with it
