Sunday SOTD

Yaqi tile razor
Razolution blade (1)
Grooming dept pre shave
Mammoth hygge set
Rod George custom brush
Captains choice obsidian copper shaving bowl

1st shave with the yaqi tile.

There are obvious similarities between the yaqi tile and Henson razors. I own the mild and medium Henson in titanium. I was intrigued to see how this would perform.

Blade clamping is excellent. There is a maybe 0.1mm protrusion of the blade at the sides, which the henson doesn't have, but it's nothing to worry about.

The shave itself was glorious. This razor feels mild with little blade feel, but after 2 passes, I'm bbs with no irritation. Glide is excellent and no chatter.

This is the razor I'm going to take on holiday. It definitely punches above its price point. The handle has to be purchased separately.

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
