I found a local metal polishing business that came highly recommended. I sent them three Asylum razors to see what they can do and also so they could give me an estimate. Here is a quick cell phone picture taken at the polishing shop. What do you think?

Thanks Todd. It will be a few weeks before I have any stock of polished razors. I am definitely looking forward to it though.

All three look great, but the Rx is particularly spectacular.

Wow, that's some stunning stuff.  I'd put up with the maintenance for a finish like that.

It takes some of the edges off the Darwin-like handle, which overall would be a negative for me.  The Asylum Rx looks amazing, though.

Lately I've been thinking of rounding out my Evolution collection with an original SS version to accompany my Black Oxide and Brass XL models. That mirror finish SS looks like a perfect complement!

Are these polished razors planned as a LE?

I’ll produce them as long as they sell. They will probably be somewhat limited at first. If they prove to be popular, it will just be another option.

Very stylish, Phil. I've been looking at the Evolution XL, and was waiting till recovered from the holidays. Now, I'll definitely wait for the mirror finish version. I do agree the Rx is stunning.

There’s a standard plate calling me...
