Rockwell Model T Update

    Perhaps they should, it does specifically say "chromed brass" in the campaign. I think I would stay in anyway but its certainly disappointing.

    It was initially released as Zalmak, but changed about 6 hours into day 1 to Brass. Most of the backers joined thinking it would be brass, so would certainly not think it unheard of either letting people pull out, or giving option to upgrade to stainless head construction (if that solves the issues they're having and is able to be done?)

    I'm glad it's now zalmak because I can go back to saving up for a nice Timeless or Charcoal razor.

    I'm very happy with my Slim, Fatboy & Futur. I don't need another adjustable. No, I don't. Are you listening, brain? You don't need any Rockwell.

    They should of simply stopped fart arsing around and made it entirely SS from the beginning, as per what a sizable portion apparently have requested!
    Glad I'm not a part of this debacle now!

    I was an early backer on the Model T. I emailed Gareth last week about the fact I was unhappy about the change back to zinc/alloy for the head.

    He actually replied yesterday , and said he was getting a lot of feedback and that they were working on an all-stainless option. Sounds like a much better option.

    Add another disappointed early backer - both delay and material. Big time miss on marketing opportunity - I understand ~7500 razors ordered.

    I was always concerned their 6c razor would use valuable 6t resources (the 6c will also miss the March date - now probably early April). Moving manufacturing across an ocean for both 6c and 6t complicates any issues.

    OK, so we probably all need to correspond with him to ensure that he gets the message loud and clear :)

    Well done you BTW!

    Good idea @Mark1966 - surely can't hurt to let him know.

    I must say I am impressed that he responded to the email. "Reading between the lines" it seems he has received many similar emails!

    Just saw this comment from Gareth

    "@Nope: I appreciate the suggestion - as mentioned below, I am currently exploring CNC options for brass / stainless steel (though in both cases it would have to be parts CNC-ed from scratch, unfortunately). I'll be posting an email signup link in the next update so that any backers interested in an "extended timeline, alternative metals" razor can keep in the loop."

    I think I would be prepared to wait. I have a few other razors to keep my occupied!
