    We are only a few short weeks away from launching Alpha Outlaw, a razor design collaboration between Alpha and Executive Shaving.

    Outlaw is a close shaving razor but not as close as the Muhle R41. It is definitely a step up in closeness compared to the ever popular Muhle and Jagger R89 and the Merkur 34C. Most shavers will get a lovely close shave with only two passes. I have two-passed my shaves since I got the first production Outlaw in my hands 2 weeks ago and it gives close, irritation free, performance. I used Feather & Supernova and both blades gave me trouble and irritation free shaves. Two passes and a little touch up and I was done.

    This DE razor has been a long time in the making and has had me tearing my hair out with the drawings and prototypes but now we are ready to launch. Orders are in at the machine shop and I have a tentative delivery of mid-Febuary.


    I am inviting pre-orders on this razor on a first come first served basis.


    Ingredients

    Razor Head Dimensions:

    Length: 43mm
    Weight: 30g.

    Handle:
    Length: 85mm
    Diameter: 13mm
    Weight: 88g.

    Alpha shaving logo on base plate and handles

    This razor set is 100% high grade 316L marine grade stainless steel. Stainless steel is rust free with no plating to peel off and no early metal wear. With care this razor will last a lifetime.

    Low profile, full width head totally covers blade tabs.

    PM sent. However, you don't have to give me the discount. I was making a statement, not asking for a hand out. I'm sorry if you feel obligated in anyway. I just made the purchase as soon as I had seen the email.

    Gentlemen (and Ladies if we have any!!) - Meet the Alpha Classic...


    My first sojourn into the world of resin handles. The design is, as ever, Alpha's own. The brush comes in a choice of 4 colors as shown. Deep Coral Red, Faux Jade, Vintage Blue and Classic Ivory

    Vital statistics:-
    • Height - approx 64mm (2.5")
    • Weight - 100g (3.5 oz)
    • Knot - Generation 4 Synthetic
    • Knot size - 28mm
    • Turned resin
    • Hand polished and lettered with the Alpha logo
    The G4 Synthetic Knot - Brian M. from Executive Shaving reviewed this knot as follows. It is the same knot I put into my Titanium Outlaw handles except it is 28mm of loveliness instead of 26mm:

    "Moving onto the knot, this is the very best knot I have ever used, it’s super-soft on the skin but due to the high density of bristles (how do they manage it?), the knot has excellent backbone. Alpha tells me that the synthetic fibres are Generation Four (G4), these fibres are without a shadow of a doubt the finest I have ever handled. Has any other brand produced the perfect pairing of super-soft tips and bristle density to this level? I doubt it."

    Pricing: This is a real discount to retail. I will place these at a well know UK vendor soon as these will retail at £35 plus shipping, that is approx $47 in the old money.

    Note about shipping: Because of the COVID-19 issue a lot of my shipping has been suspended until the movement of planes improves. Sending by DHL, FEDEX or UPS etc. is too expensive. So I will have to ship by surface mail - it takes about 1 month to reach you - hence the substantial discount.

    My price to you is NOT £35.00 but $35.00 - plus shipping of $6.50 - by now you should be ready. By now you should be salivating. By now - hit me up and BUY one!!
