Weishi 9306 TTO DE Razor

Recently received my Weishi 9306, which I believe is the same head used by the Wilkinson Sword Classic. I was pleasantly suprised. I like the razor, it shaves well, providing an easy, close, comfortable shave with an intuitive shave angle. It is more efficient than the Gillette Super Speed, and the Baili BD179, about on-par with a Karve C/D, in terms of efficiency, but with more blade feel. The Weishi can be had with several different handle styles, handle lengths and colours (with or without the Weishi logo), including the same handle style as the Wilkinson Sword for about USD $10 delivered (including 2 tucks of Cloud blades); why have a Weishi rebranded as a Wilkinson Sword Classic, when you can have the original :) . The Weishi 9306 appears well constructed, tolerances are tight and the plating is flawless. I am not sure what the razor is made from — copper alloy and/or brass alloy — I have read on some posts. I can confirm, as others have reported, the only part of the razor that attracts a magnet is the TTO knob — not sure if that means anything though. The handle knurling is excellent; the blade is held securely; blade alighnment is accurate and the razor is well balanced with well judged weighting. The razor deserves to be more popular. All in all, terific value for a very good, medium aggressive shaver.

I have the Van Der Hagen branded one. I would classify it as mild. It is a near perfect copy of a 1960s era Gillette Super Speed. I have heard there are some QC issues with this razor, but mine is quite good. Despite the low cost (I got mine for about $15 USD), I think it's quite a decent razor. It was my first DE razor and it will probably remain in my rotation for a long time.
 
I have a 9306 exactly like the one in your picture. It was given to me free with another purchase from one of our fine members here. I think it's one of the best inexpensive (under $15) razors out there. For a good cheap shave, only the Lord L6 beats it IMHO.

I also love the Lord L6...both razors hit that sweet spot for me in terms of efficiency.

The Weishi 9306 that I have is definately more efficient than my Super Speed; even a tad more efficient than an R89 / D89, indeed it is very similar to my Red Tip. It maybe that the latest iteration has been tweeked or I have a rogue one :).
 
The long handle version of the Weishi 9306 has been my primary razor since returning to DE shaving 2 and a half years ago. Works well for me. Would rate it as middle of the road aggressiveness given blade exposure - definitely not mild. Have a recently acquired King C. Gillette razor that is definitely mild by comparison requiring adjustments to my shaving technique. Like and recommend them both.
