4th shave with this razor. It leans mild to me. I could do a full 3 pass shave every day and not have any irritation. It glides over trouble spots with ease. Folks that enjoy the .61 or .54 gap wr1 should love this razor.

Tomorrow I will try a more aggressive blade in this razor. I think you could easily use a feather in this razor without any issue, but I’m going with my trusty Gillette 7 o’clock yellow.

I can’t speak for the WR2, but the BBS-1 was designed to be used with Feather Blades. Obviously you could use whatever blade you preferred, but I’ve always used Feathers in my BBS-1 with great results. The BBS-1 clamps the blade very tightly, and there is no blade chatter. All of the WR1’s I have seem to be very forgiving of blade selection.  I’m looking forward to being able to compare the WR2 to the BBS-1. Kehole I’m loving those SOTD pics, keep them coming!

Thanks Hunter. I think I’ll skip the Gillette and just load a feather tomorrow am.

Here’s a copy and paste from Facebook. I left the info about the new ck6 base from PAA if anyone is curious.

I am starting to really like this razor. After a couple incidental comments from some wetshavers I trust, I removed the 7 o clock yellow and loaded up a fresh feather. Normally this is not a blade I like a lot. I’ve enjoyed it in only a handful of razors. MAN OH MAN - this razor was made for feathers. Just incredible sharpness and closeness but none of the undesirable feather side effects of toughness or irritation. Just a perfect 2 pass shave this am.

This new soap base is awesome. I’m not ready to crown it the best base of 2018 yet, but it’s joining the top 4 in my den for sure. They nailed the Sauvage scent. The splash doesn’t have much in it for face food, but is nice and light with heavy scent. Just wish it had a little menthol and there’s no way to remove the flow restrictor to add a couple menthol crystals.

A few more shaves then I will work my way back through the wr1’s starting with the .61 gap and spend a couple days on each one before circling back to the wr2. Overall I’m very impressed especially after using this blade. [Image: fbc1393a817755d26c5f5647221621df.jpg]

You hit it spot on; BBS1 is give or take 0,54 Wolfman. However, Feather a bridge too far; will stick Timors

Probably the last detailed post about this guy. Not much more I can say. I think the feather blade is a perfect fit. This is a daily shaver on the mild side of mid aggressive to me. I’m super happy with it and it’s likely made my .61 gap wr1 expendable. If you like wolfmans, and can get one, I would encourage you to do so. There’s nothing like it on the market right now imo.

This soap....I don’t know why this isn’t one of the more popular soaps out there. The name is long, and the packaging need work, but the base is undeniably good. It’s worked its way into my top tier with 3 other brand. I can’t recommend it enough.

My .61 is my most frequently used Wolfman so I think the WR2 May be a great fit. Thanks for the reviews.

I have WR1s in .61 and .74 and a BBS1. My question is is this something I need today or eventually get around to getting one, I do like the quality and craftsmanship and I do like buying something locally made. But I anticipate these will be very hard to get for awhile. Anyone who has used the WR2 and BBS1 can do an in-depth comparison
