I'll be starting on them this weekend so keep an eye on Lee's site in the next week or so for availability.

Thanks!

Eric,

I tried to send you a PM; but it seems to be stuck in the Outbox as opposed to the Sent folder so I have no idea if it reached you. I am hoping to contract you for a progress upgrade. Let me know if you are still doing the retrofits.

Piece of cake, Charlie! Go to the PM function, type his userid in the "to" box. His SMF user name is Mer. Then you can send him a PM. :D

Why? I read his post to say we should check with Lee's Razors.

Sometimes the direct approach is preferred. If a guy's already got a Progress that might benefit from an upgrade, then there's no need to go through Lee to communicate with Eric.

It is if that's the way Eric wants it. It's not uncommon for a small craftsman to have an exclusive arrangement with a retailer.

Last I heard, you buy converted razors from Lee, but Eric still does conversions of existing razors. My information may not be up to date, however.

A clarification from Eric on this thread would be appreciated.

Does anyone know if it is still possible to get the Merkur Progress upgraded? If anyone has any information that would be great.

Thanks!

I think this knob is amazing. It looks so much better. Actually, now that I've stumbled over this thread and have seen how the Merkur Progress looks with this custom knob, I can't even look at the base model. It simply doesn't look right without it. =D>

Greetings All!

Man, time does fly! It does not seem like over a year since my last post.

I am still doing the Mergress conversions to your Progress razor.

I'm also still holding the conversion price at $46.00 shipped in the US. (I think it's going on 3 + years now)

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Eric
