Try the brass general with a feather pro super!
I don't own The Brass version. I only had it on loan. I've tried the Feather Super blades in the Aluminium version and I wasn't a fan. I'm not a fan of Feather Pro's either TBH. I've found the Proline and Kai Pro Guard 'Pinks' to work best for me.

If I like the look of the S/S I'll buy it straight away. I found the Brass version too heavy and I wasn't a fan of the look of the handle.

Coming Soon in 316L!
Hello All,

We are writing to you now with much excitement and we hope you share in our excitement once you read why we are emailing you now. Since the release of The General in aluminum, we have been asked by many customers when are we going to release it in stainless steel. We knew in order to remain more competitive in the Artist Club single edge market, we needed to release a stainless steel version.

Today, we are proud to unveil to you all The General in 316L stainless steel! This version of The General weighs approximately 123 grams. It has been a joy to use over the last few days and believe many will enjoy it as well.

Over the past few months, we have followed threads on the shaving forums about the brass version and how many would like to see a knurled handle from us. Prior to releasing the 316L version, we have asked our machine shop to provide us a new handle design for assessment. This new handle will be 12.20 mm diameter, 85 mm long, and have a diamond knurled portion. If the knurled handle passes our inspection, all 316L stainless steel razors will be released with this handle.

When you look at the stainless steel artist club razor market, most razors are priced at $185+ and do not provide a better shave than The General. Our 316L version will be priced at an incredible $59.99 + shipping.

We expect to release this version in mid to late September and hope to earn your business! We will send out updates through this newsletter as we near the official release.

Kind Regards,

Kirk and Kyle Evans

I suppose that if several of us wanted this razor and had 5, 10 or whatever shipped in one shipment we would at least have only one '£8' post office fee plus the normal customs and excise. Of course then there would be extra costs involved in the inc-country shipping. Just a thought.

You won't have to pay any extra fees.

I cant remember exactly how they get round it but...This is due to Colonial stating the value of the razor at $15.99.
I believe postage is $16.95 the same as the Brass General.

You are looking at £60.00 including postage.

Heck, after all my years I thought I finally had a good idea :( Think I'll be buying one anyway. Thanks for the information.
