Thank you Padron!Great looking shave there, Ed! I have not seen a DE like that before. Is the handle longer than that of a Merkur long handled slant as an example?
It looks very nice and the cutaway detailing is cool. 😎
Oooh I really love this base, markb... I've been curious about the roster ever since I got my hands on the lovely spicy green Fougère Nemeta.
Thank you, Ed. Really appreciate the detailed information and your thoughts on the razor. It looks really nice. 👍 I will have to read more about it.Thank you Padron!
I believe the slender Yaqi Excalibur SE is inspired by the Blackland Vector and RazoRock Hawk SE razor... Smooth and guarded in my experience.
I'm not familiar with the Merkur slant handle; here it is tailored at 3.6 inches and the overall length under 3.8 inches... A comfortable fit for any hand. Certainly, one has to pay attention to the alignment and then it's smooth sailing. Truly fun off the bat for me and has become a favoured choice these past few months. I consider it mild and perfect for anyone looking to experience the Feather Pro SE or Kai in a safe and cool format (of course, technique/angle matters matters).
BTW loving the pics!
Very "barbershopy" but instead of normal sage it's burnt sage, so there's a (slight) smokey quality to it. It's not heavy and not unpleasant. If you've ever used sage to "smudge" with, you'll know what I'm talking about. Great scent and soap!Oooh I really love this base, markb...

I heard this is a nice twist on the barbershop... How is it for you scentwise? Hmm, Autumn Ash and Samhain are other ones I'm interested in.
