As with all razor blade plugs, it’s a very cool visual effect see light peaking through the small gaps in the rotary shaver head section. The brass conical center, which attractively reflects some of the light, gives the blade plug a turbine or airplane engine vibe. The color of the brass complements black hilts and metallic-silver hilts alike.
The R2TBB Limited Edition Brass Blade Plug is 1 inch in diameter and the buyer can select a blade plug length between 1 and 2 inches. Darkside Engineering only sells blade plugs that are 1 inch in diameter, but partners with another company called ARKM who makes razor blade plugs that are 7/8 inch in diameter.
Although the blade plug is called ‘Limited Edition’, the design has been in production for several years and there is no current indication of discontinuing the R2TBB Limited Edition Brass Blade Plug.
