After watching several Youtube video's including our own Mark Szorady I pulled the trigger on this pup. After several excellent close shaves I was impressed. I compared it to my 60's Gillette Tech & found the Black Tiger had more blade exposure & blade gap.The 4 tabs align the blade dead on every time. The Charcoal finish is pretty good as well. I don't know if its modeled after the British or Canadian pre war Tech's ? Its a Gillette Tech on steroids in my experience. I get close shaves without irritation. Its made by Global Shave Clubs International In Texas. So, for those looking for a close shave that won't break the budget its a very nice razor IMO. I ordered mine on Ebay for 10 bucks shipped & thats hard to pass up for me. P.S. Its a three Piece Razor.
