Its possible the Razor could be good. Please give us a review after it arrives by way of Dog Sled from Canada.A buddy & I had been holding off a combined Italian Barber order for a few months until this one came out so even if it's a dud I won't be out of anything since it's a bonus freebie. With luck, it'll be here by the end of next week.
Thank You for the input. It sounds like its a good razor.After some more shaves I have reached a few conclusions. The resultant shave with this razor is exactly like that of a post-war Tech, but (and it's a big but) it is smoother. This new Teck II has what is IMO a better way to hold the blade with the four corner "points". That, coupled with a slightly more ergonomic head, gives a tad smoother shave IMO. It is not aggressive by any means.
With that said, I think this is still an excellent daily shaver (perhaps better) for those who like the post-war Tech aggression. But far more than that, this just may be the ne plus ultra DE razor for neophytes when you combine the aforementioned qualities as well as price point. It is incredibly smooth. The perfect beginner or "loaner" DE razor.
As a Gillette Tech enthusiast, curious whether anyone has tried the Baili 191? Currently under £7 on Aliexpress.Is this the same razor? Both ironically have the same shape handle and number of annular rings:
