Hopefully next month. We will have 85mm and 101mm handles available.

How does the blackbird compare for smooth feeling to say a Timeless 95 gap SB? When I speak of smooth, I mean that there is no blade chatter and the blade feels like it’s held super solidly.

Personally, I find the Blackbird just as good, if not a bit better, than the Timeless, regarding your question. I had the Timeless .95 SB, OC Scallop, but I much prefer the Blackbird as it works much better, for me.  Shane also offers a 30-day guarantee if you don't get on with it.

Rock solid, no chatter. Smooth and efficient in my hand. The BB is .58 IIRC, but the design enhances the gap I guess. It is a really good shaver. I also have the Timeless in .95, and it is really good too, but oddly enough the .68 Timeless didn't do it for me, and I sold it. The .58 Blackbird is equal to the .95 Timeless AFAIC.

Without other metrics, gap is useless info.
