RazoRock Wunderbar Slant Razor
**READ BELOW BEFORE PURCHASING!!
NOTE 1: The Wunderbar head has a machine vibratory finish. A vibratory finish is not a high polished finish, it's smooth to the touch and tumbling marks are evident. The reason we use this type of finish is so we can maintain the tightest tolerances. Hand polishing can change the tolerances and the tightest tolerances are very important with this slant design. The tolerances of the Wunderbar are more precise than any other safety razor currently on the market!
USING THE WUNDERBAR: The 'key' to using the Wunderbar properly is to let the blade and the head design do all the work. You don't want to add any pressure on the skin. You want the guard to just lightly touch your skin as the hairs are efficiently sliced away. When you master the light touch, you will not find a better shaver!
The RazoRock Wunderbar is the next evolution of our slant razor product. Although we were very proud of our previous version, the RazoRock Stealth slant(the first machined slant ever produced), there were areas that needed improving on, to achieve a slant razor we could be truly proud of. We wanted a razor that was machined from 316L stainless steel because of its hardness and corrosion resistant properties but machining such a complex part from 316L is no easy task; most machine shops asked us if we are insane! We also wanted to make the head much thinner, for easy shaving underneath your nose. The reduced weight from a thinner head would make the razor easier to control in stainless steel.
We knew for this razor, we wanted the blade tabs to be covered. This meant that the machining tolerances had to be ridiculously accurate (read: no blade play). Without the blade tabs exposed, there would be no way to wiggle the blade into place, it had to be a perfect fit, every time. The head is machined to two thousandths of an inch to achieve this and similarly to the machined case on the Apple iPhone, each top cap and base plate has to be mated together manually because the tolerances are so exact, even a thousandth of an inch here or there makes a difference. Each razor undergoes multiple blade tests (by ME), to insure the tolerances are exact and the blades fit perfectly. One caveat, if you are using a blade with a lot of glue on it, I urge you to take the blade out after each shave. If you leave a blade with a lot of glue in the razor for days and weeks, the head will be difficult to disassemble because of the super tight tolerances (the glue will stick everything together).
The blade alignment is designed similarly to the Stealth slant, NOT parallel to the top cap. From our testing, this is the ideal blade position for this razor. You can see the alignment in the close-up picture of the head (with the blade in it). Again, there is no wiggle room, this is the correct alignment and the only way the blade will sit in the head.
The razor is finished using a 3 stage, 3 media, 24 hour, special vibratory machine process. It's what's called a "Fine Finish", somewhere between a matte finish and a high polish finish. A lot of thought was put into the finish of the razor because we needed a process that would not change the ultra tight machining tolerances and would also make the finish consistent throughout the entire head (both outside and underside). Hand polishing was not an option because too much material would need to be taken and it would cause major inconsistencies. Our finish gives the razor a nice "finished-tool like" appearance and also make the head very easy to clean.
You can see that we priced the razor VERY aggressively. We are only able to do this because being sold direct-to-consumer for a very small profit.
