The boxes arrived late in the day yesterday but, the razors are still a few weeks off. We hope to have them ready sometime in February. Here are a few shots of the box.

Will production be limited to 100 or is there plans for future releases?

We will only make 100 of this particular razor in 2021.

Ha! You kinda sorta answered. Well played. I will assume there will be more at some point post 2021.

Yes, we are planning a Ti run with a longer handle. We are also hoping to do a Ti run of the Asylum Rx.

Ha. We like to keep our options open. Subsequent runs will probably have subtle changes.

Very tempting. Thanks for sharing all the images as you work through the development process and sharing thoughts and information on knurling and etching, etc. Fascinating.

Based on the box, looks like your handle design may be set, but if you're open to suggestions, I think it would look nicer if the pattern were larger, similar to to the Triad Satin Diamond (http://shavenook.com/showthread.php?tid=...#pid955933), while also differentiating more from the Diamondback.

The handle design is still a work in progress; we hope to nail it down this week. The picture on the box is from the blueprints. We may make other razor designs out of 17-4 in the future. If so, we will use the boxes again (we have 500 of them).

I have been testing various blades in the Prototype. This week I have been using a Kai DE blade in the prototype with excellent results. I think I like the Kai even more than the NOS Super Iridiums (which also work great) in the Asylum 17-4. So far, all blades that I have tried have worked well.
