Email van John van Los Angeles shaving soap company :

 

Hello,
 
This is just to let you know that the BBS-1 is no longer being produced. I realize that some of you have been waiting quite some time for one of these razors, but after a long discussion with James, the machinist who has singlehandedly produced all of these razors, we have decided to bring production to an end.
 
James will still be producing razors, but mass production of the BBS-1 has become unfeasible going forward, as James wants to take the time to develop new products and new designs, and needs the time to do the research and development, which he cannot do while making the same product over and over.
 
His work is available at https://wolfmanrazors.com/ and he will be producing small quantities of different razors on his own time and schedule, at which point he will be putting them up for sale. (He will not be doing a waitlist at this time, as the management thereof is very time consuming, and takes time he needs to spend developing new product.)
 
I apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment, and I am grateful for the enthusiasm regarding this razor.
 
Thank you,
 
John Brown

Inderdaad, vooral voor wie al een jaar of 2 op de wachtlijst stond. Ik vind het zelf één van mijn fijnste krabbers, heb er een paar jaar geleden één op de open markt gekocht en een jaar terug, nadat ik anderhalf jaar op de wachtlijst stond, heb er ik één direct van John kunnen kopen voor mijn zoon.

Ik weet nog wel de eerste keer dat ik me met jouw standaard 0,62 met dichte kam geschoren had en daarna versteld stond van het gladde resulaat. Deze ook getest met een shim plaatje en dat was nog gladder. Dus daarna via jou de voor mij gemaakte 0,65 met open en dichte kam bij James besteld. En deze bleek veel comfortabeler te zijn en prettiger te scheren als de 0,62 met shimplaatje. Tot ik de recensies las over de 0,75 las dat hij ondanks zijn zeer hoge efficiency zeer comfortabel bleef en ik vervolgens het geluk had om de 0,75 Titanium van Wolf kon overnemen. 

En daar ben ik hem nog steeds dankbaar voor want het blijft ondanks de vele mooie krabbers zoals bijvoorbeeld de Blackbirds en Timeless die hierna zijn gekomen nog steeds mijn nummer 1

Loos alarm ze gaan nu weer wel verder, maar hoe is nog niet helemaal duidelijk:

 

Hello,
 
After having a night to think things over, and having seen the outpouring of enthusiasm for the BBS-1 around the wetshaving internet, James has agreed to continue producing the BBS-1.
 
It was never our intention to disappoint our customers and prospective customers, James just wanted some time to do some R&D on future product, to put the machining skills and wetshaving razor knowledge he has gained over the past few years to use on new and even better designs.
 
I wanted him to do that, but I also explained to him that the ongoing demand for the BBS-1 still existed, and encouraged him to keep it in production. I was initially unsuccessful, but you have convinced him, so he will continue production on a part-time basis going forward, in a manner that will allow BBS-1 production to continue, while also allowing for new product to come to market at some point down the line.
 
I don't have more details than that at the moment, I just didn't want anyone to spend all of their Holiday funds trying to buy one on the aftermarket, as we will have them available in limited quantities in the future.
 
Have a wonderful holiday, and I look forward to bringing you fresh product in 2018!
 
John Brown
