    New Yaqi SE in 50mm.

    From what I could tell, the one that came with mine is a Feather Pro, and is shaved like one. I've used the knockoffs that came with a Kai shavette clone, and they were very easy to tell apart from genuine Feather/Kai/Schick blades. Perhaps you got a dud or a mishandled blade. Or maybe they...

    Thanks. I posted about it here. https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/threads/new-yaqi-se-in-50mm.603494/page-5#post-11204931 Not as much blade feel as I like to I overcompensated and ended up with a few weepers.

    New Yaqi SE in 50mm.

    First shave with it yesterday. I found the build quality on mine to be very good. I am predominantly a Straight and shavette user.

    Head shine?

    For full disclosure, I'm not a headshaver. But I have heard that talcum or cornstarch power does a great job of cutting down on the sheen. Clubman Pinuad makes a scented talcum powder (assuming you like the Clubman classic scent) and also offers a lightly tinted version (sold as shave talc)...

    New SE razor, so new you can't buy it yet

    Agreed! At a glance, I don't see how it offers any advantages over the Supply. The magnetic heads are a nice touch, but for that kind of money, I can deal with a thumbscrew. The stainless Supply is still more affordable than the aluminum Hyperbody.

    Unfortunately I don't know the vintage. Otherwise I would certainly include that info. If I had to take a wild guess, I'd say early 1900's?
