The Yaqi Slant is up next Drew. I know the bronze Yintal 3 piece you're on about and it's a good razor. I think mine is now owned by Iain following the purchase of one of my shaving bundles.Bought a bronze Yintal 3 piece which I used for the first time today. It's a weighty beast and gave me a very good shave. It really surprised me. Believe it uses the Maggard V3a head. Got the Yaqi slant also and it's an aggressive beast but gives a damn fine shave.
Good Yuck i hope it dosent go all wongNo, this isn't a little known celebratory month.
I'm about to conduct a month using only my Chinese razors. The collection consists of:
Ming Shi 2000s
Ming Shi 3000s
Yaqi Monster Hybrid
Yaqi Chrome Scalloped
View attachment 52907
Unless a bloodbath ensues, each will be used for 3 shaves with a Gillette Winner blade. This will be the only common element.
I'm also going to give all my 'cooling' soaps and creams a run out so the following will be used for the first 8 shaves:
ESC Fuar Ach Snog
Dead Sea Shave Maelstrom
Signature Soaps Eboracum
I'll report on my findings here.
What do we hope to learn from this endeavour? No idea. I doubt this thread will be of use to anybody but I haven't really got a lot better to do in these days and evenings of lockdown. If somebody reads this and is enabled to buy a Chinese razor and a 'menthol' soap, my work here is done.
Also worth noting that I'm easily distracted and there's every possibility I won't see this through.
