Thanks, missed this part from Gareth.All their zamak models( this, 6c and 2c) are made in China.
Their ss model, Rockwell 6s, will be made in China as well at some point, they're moving their production.
A simple announcement is to be expected.
This was said by Gareth himself.
To me it's unacceptable that they sold the 6S for 100$ for a SS razor made in the US while the Model T will be sold 200$, for a zamak razor made in China.
This is totally overpriced compared to current market (again I'm thinking about the REX razor). Do you have any other example of a zamak razor made in China at such a price ? I really don't ... not even at 100$.
Their 6C made in China (probably from the same manufacturer) is not quality (many issues reported when screwing the handle, paint wear-off on gunmetal finish) but at least it's sold at a fair price.
Seems like they moved their production to decrease quality and increase prices.
Many customers like me ordered it as the 6S was such a good deal. I now have a very bad image of this company. To me everything with this model T is a fail: crazy delay, change of material (at customer full disadvantage), bad communication and change of production location (again at customer disadvantage).
What's next ? Will Yaqi design and make 200$ brushes for them ?
I apology for this blow of mouth, I am so mad at such practices. Hope at least it will shave decently.
