Those of you that have been following our story know that we've had a long road to get to full rate production of the Single Edge razor. And we're very excited to announce that road has almost come to an end.
Over this past weekend, we approved our first full rate manufacturing run with a new supplier for our Single Edge razor. This manufacturing run has actually been in the works for months, but my approval on the "First Article" off the assembly line was required to finalize the production. That approval was given just a few days ago.
(First article is just a fancy industry way of saying the first product off an assembly line.)
Actually, if we're being completely accurate, it took a "Second Article" approval to move forward. The first article off the production line had a few cosmetic defects that I rejected, requiring the approval of a second article. This second article looked fantastic, as you can see in these pictures.
I'm very pleased with the quality of this razor. From the finish to the function - and most importantly, to the shave - this razor oozes quality. We're extremely proud to offer a razor of such high tolerances and quality at such an amazing price point. This razor is CNC'd to extremely tight tolerances (+/- 0.1mm), and is the only stainless steel CNC razor in the world offered under $100 (as far as we're aware).
But how does it shave? In short, excellently. I've personally tried all three shave settings - Sensitive, Classic, and Aggressive - and each performs wonderfully. Personally, I have always struggled with sensitive skin and razor burn, so the Sensitive setting is my favorite. No burn, no bumps, nada.
To those of you out there that have patiently endured the journey with us, we cannot thank you enough. The wait will soon be over, and you'll be shaving soon with this fantastic razor.
At this time, we anticipate deliveries to begin the week of Monday, November 21st. As always, this may flex a bit based on how things progress, but all the hard parts are behind us. All the razors have been manufactured and are currently undergoing final CNC and polish. After that, it's packaging, inspection, and off to you!
Supply would be nothing without the support of our loyal and devoted customers. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for getting us this far!

I'll be honest. I'm not sure we can pull it off. But we're going for it anyways. We're going to try to put together an entire Kickstarter campaign in 12 days.
Every man is unique, and so is his beard. That's why we've created a razor that is adjustable to match your unique shaving needs. The Custom Single Edge razor ships with three different shave settings that can be changed out in seconds: Sensitive, Classic, and Aggressive.
Think of it like the electric clippers at your barber shop - change the blade setting, and change how close you cut. Need an extra close shave today? Just use our aggressive setting - it allows you to mow down the thickest beard with ease. Just a trim? Use our sensitive setting. Once you shave with our customizable razor, you'll wonder why you ever did it any other way.
Not a custom type of guy? No worries! Just order the Classic Single Edge, which includes the classic shave setting. It's our most popular setting, and gives a fantastic shave with zero irritation.
