Second shave with my SSSeygus this morning.
Configuration: standard handle without the weight thingie:



Loaded with the Rainbow Super Stainless blade - 8th and last time.

The blade definitively reached its end-of-life.
Had no problems with the balance or the (lack of) weight - what bothered me was the length of the handle - it really is too
short to my taste (but of course YMMV).

Nevertheless a nice smooth DFS++ shave .... :p
Very nice, Jan! It is indeed a great razor!

Third shave this morning with my SSSeygus.
This configuration:



Custom aluminum handle, 100 mm long, weight 29 grams.
Put a fresh Personna Lab Blue blade in it.

Weight OK, balance OK, length of handle OK - maybe even better than original handle plus "weight-thingie".
It's a pity this handle isn't black.

Again a DFS++ result with this superb razor.

Will try a stainless handle tomorrow - let's see whether the added weight is an improvement ... :p

Its funny, but I prefer the prototype over this head, I find this one too aggressive feeling on my baby smooth skin :p
I did find an inexpensive black handle on eBay though with a Todds Cuts razor head attached to it that looks OK on the Sseygus.

Fourth shave this morning with the SSSeygus.
Configuration:



Custom stainless handle, 100 mm long, weights 76 grams.
Blade Personna Lab Blue (2).

Length of handle OK, balance OK, weight OK - not better, not worse than the aluminum 100 mm handle.

Again - DFS++ result. :)

Will try a slightly shorter and lighter stainless handle tomorrow - after that I assume end of test suite, and
use the standard handle + "weight thingie" after that.

Rumours are there will be a longer SSSeygus handle in future - Thalasos: please put me on the list ... :rolleyes:

Checked eBay for Todds Cuts - handle looks OK, but postage (to the Netherlands) a little bit steep - to my taste ...:(
A word to the wise on Todds Cuts. I too bought one of their razors with the black/plain metal finish handles, which I think is the same as @Father Ted 's, purely for the handle, which looks nice enough and is supposedly stainless. If indeed it is stainless, it's an incredibly low grade. On a flat surface, with a medium strength ordinary (i.e. not rare-earth) magnet, the handle will roll to the magnet when the latter is about 1 1/2 inches (38mm) away. That's not what I'd expect from a lump of even 304 grade stainless; more like plain old steel.
