Thanks very much for your inquiry regarding Shavemaster. We are in fact closing in on a release date of 3 October. However, I will only have a mere handful of brushes available for sale at that time. An informal waiting list has already formed and I am alarmed by its length. Indeed, despite my best efforts to keep this thing mum, the indefatigable power of the Internet has rendered my efforts largely superfluous. I suspect several weeks of backorders are in store for all of us.
Depending on how the next several days go, I will probably compile an official wait list of buyers who want brushes. As product becomes available I will contact each buyer in turn--first come, first served. I hope, though, that no such list will be necessary. At the same time, I absolutely will not accelerate production to meet demand under any circumstances. Each brush is hand turned, hand knotted and hand finished. No imperfect brush will be shipped to anyone;no exception.
For the present, please check my website at www.enchanteonline.com for the Shavemaster link. I suspect that by the time we actually post the brushes there will be enough available to satisfy expected demand.
I very much appreciate your inquiry. Let me know how I can be of further assistance. Best regards, Chas Roberts
