I have all the plates from C to F, and two handle/top plate sets. My favorite is the 3.5 E, but sometimes the C is nice on a lazy day. I have trouble believing that the C is too aggressive for anybody. If I want to kick it up a notch from the E, I’m more likely to reach for the Dart.

Holy Moly, that looks nice! I did the Flitz last month, and I do some touch up with a Maas cloth. But now I want to try what you did. Fantastic!

What did you do with the Flitz? I'm interested in polishing my Karve and then letting it patina naturally. It's got a few water spots on it now and generally looks a bit meh as I've been letting it air dry.

I have a tube of Flitz. I put a pea sized amount on say the guard and rub it around with a white paper towel or clean cotton cloth. After a bit, the cloth has dark spots, and then I get a clean cotton cloth and wipe it well. I get a shiny result but never as WOW as wyze0ne got!

Holy crap! That thing looks awesome polished. And if you want to keep it looking shiny you can use some protectaclear or a similar product.

It's sharp and it cuts. I like it...

An email was sent out by Chris of Karve (Christopher Bradley) on a notification of a new products and some that are in the works...


New for the Christopher Bradley razor
3.25" brass handles

[Image: IJcw6T6.jpg]


The CB now has four handle options!

Thanks to interest during last weekend's reddit AMA on r/wetshaving, construction of the 3.25" handle was started earlier this week and the first batch wrapped up yesterday.

- - - That first batch is going live at 5:00 MST - - -
Sorry for the short notice. If you miss out, don't worry...the 3.25" handle will be a standard option from now on.

And this release is not capped to the inventory I have on hand right now. If there isn't enough, I'll make more of them this coming week.

I'll need to make some changes to the store for the release, so it will go down for a little bit leading up to 5.

And for those that have asked...yes, I'm also working on all four handles in stainless and titanium. They're just not ready yet.

4" for me is great, the longer the better and also that's what she said

Following the lead of wyze0ne, I procured some wadding polish and set to work this morning. Here is the before photo:

And here is the after:

Lighting can be tricky for me and my photo-fu, so I tried to get a better shot of cap's underside. This has been were the discoloration is the toughest for me to "even out."

I am very pleased with the results of the wadding polish. I had done Flitz polishing at the end of September, so I didn't have much patina forming. I don't mind the patina forming, I just would like it more even. After shaving, I typically only rinse the razor under warm water from the faucet, and pat it a couple of times on a towel. No disassembly or meticulous drying. That is most likely why the under side of the cap and top of the baseplates have been uneven in color after time.

-------------------------------
After looking at the Preview Post feature, I hardly see a difference in my pics!  Oh well, there is a very noticeable difference that my photos don't seem to capture. My Christopher Bradley razor went from looking very nice to looking fantastic!  

On a side note, I don't ever recall holding a razor to admire its craftsmanship before I started shaving with double edged razors! My Slim and this razor are so well made. Even my Tech is neat to behold. Maybe it's the lack of plastic/disposableness, maybe because they are shiny, or maybe just because!
