I’m looking into slowly getting one DE razor from all the high end brands. 

What companies do normally have enough stock so that you don’t have to wait for several months to be able to get the razor ?

I’m planning on getting a DE razor from each of these brands over the next year or so - so I do have patience but not a lot if it. 

Rocnel
Yates
Karve 
Blackland
Timeless
Wolfman
Charcoal

Anybody with experience with Rocnel razors ?

Am I missing some brands ?

I already own two Tatara Masamune and all the baseplates for them. 

I also own the Edwin Jagger 3One6, 4 x Mühle Rocca’s and the Rockwell 6S Matte black - but I don’t consider them ‘high end’ razors although they all 3 most certainly provide me with a ‘high end’ shaving result.

I’m especially a crazy big fan of the Mühle Rocca.

The v4 edition (I think it’s called that) from 2020/2021 is the best razor head design I’ve yet to try in a DE razor. The finish of the Rocca is a bit dull but holy cow it’s effective and smooth on my stubble.

I also own the Mühle R41 Grande in stainless steel.
Dare I say this ?!?
I prefer my Mühle R41 Twist made from Zinc zamac Alloy potmetal, dare I say it ?!?
It’s a better balanced razor and the butt cap on the Twist handle makes for a more solid grip in my opinion.

Thanks for any advice.

Here's plenty of Rocnel information

Yates might have some stock and then you build your own on the others and wait. Might be changing things a bit here in the near future.

Timeless usually keep a good stock the last I checked.

 Wolfman it was a two or three months out after you order from the last I know.

Charcoal goods will have to be bought  off the BST because they're out of business.

Blackland usually has razors in stock or you might have to wait a bit but not long.
 
Others can probably add more specifics to that. I got out of your order but got some information to you.

Lambda- limited runs. Email him to waitlist. The Athena is probably my second favorite razor behind the blackbird.

Carbon- he did some limited runs last year with exotic metals costing upwards of 1200 usd if you’re feeling spicy

Atelier Durdan- 1-2 month wait

Rex has the konsul which is high end. Can also do gold or rhodium plating

Paradigms previous releases

Raw shaving previous releases.

Agreed they are readily available. I love Karve but there is usually a waiting period if you buy direct. I did see a discounted OC Karve SS at Maggard. I’m tempted myself.

When you get around to Timeless, put the head together from their "Scratch and Dent" to save some money. Then add a Ti Crown handle.

Thanks for your input.

Already owned the Pils, not quite a razor for me, but extremely well built - I think the term ‘built like a tank’ is appropriate when talking about the Pils razor. 

In the end I sold my Pils DE razor 9-10 years ago along with the 2 Feather ASD2 I also bought back then. 
I sold them because they were simply too mild for my very stiff and coarse beard stubble (my Scandinavian stubble are stiff like steel wire)

If Pils made different base plates to pick from, I would reconsider buying it. As it is, it’s simply too mild for me. 

I’m not even going to address the two Feather ASD2 razors I bought. Let’s just say that I find the Henson AL13 mild version very aggressive compared to the Feather. I tried riding the cap and riding the guard and everything in between with the Feather yet nothing worked. It could simply not cut my stubble even with new Feather and KAI blades. 

Hone and Blutt I have to look into as I’ve never heard of these two brands before.
