    Actually they don't stock them they are drop shipped by the manufacturer. When I bought mine it came through Niagara Falls N.Y. Italian Barber is in the LA area.

    Had my first shave with the Wunderbar today. It is very efficient completing the job in two passes with a few touch ups. I used an Astra blade on its second shave I could tell the razor demands attention to detail in order to avoid any irritation/nicks. It seems well worth the mental investment. This week I will put it to use and see how it goes.

    I've been using my Wunderbar for a bit now so I can provide a mini review here. By way of comparison I've been using the Mongoose since the first version came out.

    First the finishing is excellent. The description says it has a basic finish but they must have refined that because mine is mirror quality on the head and handle. The only negative I could find is the handle when screwing into the head is a little rough feeling. It screws in fine but is rough. We'll see what happens with that.

    The razor is light compared to the Mongoose and fits well in the hand with a sure grip. It reminds me of the Feather Stainless which I thought has a quality like an extension of your hand like a surgical instrument. This is the same. I imagine the Titanium handle is why it's light and it's well balanced with the head.

    Using a feather blade in both razors this razor is less aggressive than the mongoose and gives a better shave no doubt about that at all. I would say this razor equals my original R-41 in shave quality without it's bad disposition. You do have to watch the pressure because if you apply any I would imagine nicks would abound. It's not as sensitive in that regard as the R-41 but is closer to the Mongoose.

    The resulting shave was total BBS without any negatives at all. I would highly recommend this razor and as a matter of fact the shave is so close to a straight that....well I'll stop there.

    Nice mini review. I think I will try a feather blade in it tomorrow morning. Does anyone have a base stand for it they can recommend?

    I have the razorock slant that is a very fine shaver for a budget. If budget doesn’t apply the Merkur or ATT are my pick.
