Mmmm... interesting.

Anyway, the best Tech clone I have ever tested is... a cheap Lord L5, hehe

Yes, it has a poor finish&weight but it shaves wonderfully well in my hard beard... even better that the original Tech but still in the mild side! And you can align well the blade (sigh, those awful Fatip razors...)

Cheers

The Teck 2 looks just like the Chinese Baili to me also! What a long wait only to have a BIG let down. Their shipping is expensive as well to the USA. I am not going to order one since I have the Lord Tech Razor which I am sure is Way better & with FREE shipping from Ebay to boot. ARRRGGG.!!!!!

:confused: Huh? They ship TO the USA from a New York address. That is quite common for Canadian businesses on the border to avoid the outrageous Canadian customs fees that border on rape.

I was going to order a 10 buck brush until I found out the shipping was 7 bucks. I think thats high when online vendors offer around 2-4 buck shipping. Maggard only charges 3 something for shipping a single brush. Besides that its a Chinese Baili Razor or a dead ringer for one & I won't bother getting one.

Same here, I was going to get their new Dead Sea Soap and at checkout, I found it would cost an additional $7 AND they are currently backlogged on their orders. I am considering ordering that razor from the link Bogeyman provided. $10 and free shipping. So it will take three weeks, not like it's my only razor.

There you go & you save on shipping. About 3 weeks is right as I get blades shipped from Hong Kong & its about 3 weeks & sometime less. If thats not a Baily Razor I would be very surprised.

I'm just waiting to see how much Razorock charges for it. If it around $10, I might pick it up from him along with the Dead Sea soap. If it's $20 like the rest of his budget razors, then Aliexpress gets the order and I wait.

I emailed them & they said it would be around 10 Bucks. Figure in the shipping for 7 Bucks & the Chinese Baili Razor almost comes to 20 Bucks. If its a heavy metal Razor the shipping might be more. I got an almost new Gillette Tech razor from the Bay for 16 bucks shipped & I know its far better than the Baili Razor. I have a couple of their shave soaps & they are very good soaps.

I wonder how does this Italian Barber/Razorock Tech clone compare to the Rimei razor (the moderately aggressive Tech clone from Deal Extreme)? Because, beyond the handle of the Baili and the so called Italian Barber label, I don't really see the point...o_O

Edit: I have got a Yi Jingli Tech whose the head is a true Tech head clone (it shaves the same way as my Gillette Tech made in Mexico); it can be found for £2 or £3, you just need to replace the plastic handle.

I'm going to order one and get it for free with their new special. I received their e-mail offer today:


All you have to do, to get your free razor, is...

1) Spend $35 USD before taxes or shipping at ItalianBarber.com

2) Include at least 1 RazoRock Shaving Soap in your order

3) Type "Labor Day FREE RAZOR Promo" in the order notes



If you do these three things you will get our new RazoRock TECK II DE razor included with your order FREE! This is a new and improved version of the vintage Gillette TECH razor... better chroming, no blade tabs exposed and more weight. A truly mild and efficient shaver.

I have no qualms about supporting Italian Barber as they are a great benefit to the shaving community and have some really neat & innovative stuff. I love their XXX Shave Soap for example. It helps to support small vendors when possible as I don't want to end up in the future waiting weeks for everything to come by ocean "barge" from China and then be SOL if I need customer service. I did however order from China on 3 Aug. the Gillette kit in my avatar and have no idea when it will arrive (if ever). First time I have ever ordered directly from there.

So, your are going to spend 35 Bucks + shipping to get a FREE Chinese Razor probably worth 5 Bucks wholesale..??? That makes sense to me.! I have an Ocean Front property to sell you in Arizona.:)
