I used to have a few BBS-1 and still own a couple of WR1 - .67mm and .74mm. I could never achieve as good a shave with the BBS-1 as I could with my Wolfmen with extended gap. I ended up exchanging my BBS-1 for WR1...

My experience is the inverse of this.  I find the BBS-1 to be a superb shaver, much more comfortable and efficient than my WR1 OC .74mm.

Wow, I had no idea he stopped doing that. That's a shame, but understandable.

I had to point this out to everyone on this thread because it is the stuff of nightmares, at least for me. When I woke up this morning at 7 a.m. I saw that there was a Wolfman on the BST. It was posted last night at like 2 a.m. eastern time. By 6 a.m. it had sold. By 8 a.m. it was already in the BST archive. Unbelievable. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep anymore.

Haha  Had one literally ready to ship but then seller got better offer; was getting a bargain so not upset and seller a great guy but BLOODY F..KING DAMN!

Want to really use one back to back with BBS1 over time to understand which base and gap is best so if ever able to order can get right first time. 

Love my BBS1 and trying hard to get another but just need know if regular Wolfman as great.

Would have paid $450 in heartbeat for oc

Normally would have been on here scouring bst but was watching rachel maddow interview buzzfeed over release of trump russia dossier. Damn it to hell

I am this close to my first wolfman. ... And of course no tracking movement in a week... if this thing  is lost/ stolen that's gonna be a very tough pill to swallow! [Image: E8ajwcT.png]

Nice! I hope you receive it soon and enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine.

I wouldn't worry too much about slow mail. Around holidays, customs (and mail in general) are always really slow. I've never had USPS/CanadaPost lose one package in over a decade of using them, despite sometimes waiting ridiculously long (1-2 months) before receiving them.
