Blackland Blackbird

The blackbird: with closed and open comb. I have the handle of 80 mm. In the past they produced smaller and larger handles as well.
Unfortunally other handles does not fit.

The open comb is too harsh for. The closed comb my favorit

Good to know as the Blackbird has been on my list for over a year now. Every time one comes up, something else comes up ahead of it. I was leaning toward the solid base myself, but you just confirmed that this is what I will be looking for. :daumenhoch

A safety razor that unfortunately was less attractive to me because of the thin handle

In my opinion the thin handle with a heavy shaving head on it is out of balance and I found it uncomfortable to hold on to, partly because of that.

I have also had both the open and closed comb in my possession and share the opinion with Onno that the closed comb is much more pleasant to shave.

I understand they retooled this razor after it's first iteration. That 1st one was a terrible design. One razor that made me reconsider using cartridge razors. Instead I just sent the razor back to the makers. I think it was initially released from a Kickstarter project.

The initial release was a Kickstarter project. I was not aware that the razor was retooled. I knew that it was always a more aggressive shaver than most. They have since built up quite a following.

I've had both the first version and the current version of the Blackbird.
The first version had very sharp corners at the ends of the top and bottom plate that were clearly felt during the shave.
The second version has rounded corners which makes it feel much more comfortable.
