    The Wolf has Landed

    For those curious about queue spots, I placed my initial order on 9/19/19. I received my invoice to pay today, 4/9/20. I expect I’ll have the razor by the end of April. Looking forward to comparing my 1.25 WR-2 to my .86 WR-1.

    Best 1964 Safety Razor

    1964 is my b-year also. I have a J1 uncirculated Slim in nickel and one in the gold plated Aristocrat edition. I’ll be using an almost new Slim in nickel next week on the b-day. I find the Slim to be a great shaver on the higher efficiency settings.

    What Frag were you wearing when you last got a compliment?

    Roja Amber Aoud at a Mardi Gras ball last Saturday night. I had several ladies compliment it. Two weeks earlier at another Mardi Gras ball, I wore MFK Oud Satin Mood Extrait and received 4-5 compliments, including one lady who said, “OMG you smell good, what is that.”

    WOLFMAN Order Wait List - What Razor / Configuration Did Order?

    Question on gap for anyone who has used the Wolf WR-2 and the Timeless .95. Which WR-2 is closest in efficiency to the T .95. I want one slightly more efficient, i.e., if the parallel is the WR-2 1.25, then I want to order the WR-2 1.35. Thanks in advance for any responses.

    WOLFMAN Order Wait List - What Razor / Configuration Did Order?

    Identical order for me on 9-19-19, except 1.25 mm gap. Wondering if anyone has had their order filled lately and when they submitted order. I’d love to get some frame of reference for how close I’m getting to order being fulfilled.
