Whacker 49 is the first of 8 razors that would look similar and is made from locally made billits, resulting in a razor that is all handmade, right down to the steel used for the blade.  They will be a bit more fancy and sleek, and the first few will go cheaper as there is the chance of the edge needing more maintainance on the stones, this is the first time we are trying locally made billits using 75cr1 as the core material, I will be testing them also, but as I am testing boatloads of stuff all of the time, any longterm testing is simply impossible, I need your help!  

These 8 razors will have Cu mai/San mai forged steel forming a wavy pattern on the grind, and thin straight lines on the tang/point. The razors have more rounded curves with no sharp edges. This blade has a height of 25 mm/ 1", and has a cutting edge of 78 mm, the spine is 4.8 mm thick, delivering an angle of just over 11 degrees, now this may very well be too sharp an angle, but it can still be remedied by taking some bottom blade away or honing with muliple layers of tape. The edge was not breaking away on the stones, which was a good sign indeed! New territory. The razor weighs 93 grams, and has a half hollow grind. The razor sports brass pins, stainless washers and Rooiboswilg scales.

This razor needs to be stropped at a medium pace as it is a large razor compared to the average out there. The test shave was...(to be tested) 

Humidity is your razors's number one enemy, dry properly after use and oil when stored for prolonged periods or when in high humidity environments.
