First Victory Shave this morning with the Baili BR171.
Very nice!
The razor is fairly light, but the handle is nice & grippy. The plating seems flawless. The fit & finish is fine.
The blade sits in place perfectly well. I'm not a fan of the overhang on the blade ends, so had to be careful especially when going across under my nose.
I used a Kai blade on shave no.4. The actual shave was more comparable to my FH Canada 1932 Tech than the later Techs. The razor gave a smooth, effortless 3 pass shave.
An absolute steal at £7.99 delivered.

Just shaved with the Kanzy Victory razor. I believe exactly the same as the Baili, just rebranded. Cost £6.49. A very decent shave. Will post in SOTD.

Loving the cheaper clone razors! Eyeing up a Gillette Sterling razor.

Several shaves now & this really is a lovely little razor.
I think it's actually slightly more aggressive than my FH Tech. I'd say more similar to my Red Tip.
Similarly, I've been using the Kanzy Victory razor. Same razor as the Baili. Agreed - wonderful razor. For under £6.50 it's a steal. I may be wrong; but the prices of Tech's seems to be sneaking up on eBay at the moment. These homages are a good value alternative.

To zhoosh things up - my next shave will be a 1950's Tech head on the Kanzy handle.
