Great 1st shave with this razor this evening.



I loaded it up with a Lada blade and had a nice mellow shave.

The balance felt perfect and the stock handle suited my hand perfectly.

The only issue was blade alignment, and, based on earlier comments in this thread, it was easy enough to resolve.

I'm looking forward to trying an Astra tomorrow as this will help me to gauge how smooth this razor actually is. [emoji41]

Day 2 of using the Asylum Evolution yesterday.



I used an Astra blade and the shave was smoother than with the Lada blade on day 1, although I did notice some irritation afterwards. I really like this razor, but the blade alignment issue is a PITA. I managed to get the blade aligned by centring the hole in the middle of the blade with the hole in the cap. I still love the handle though, it's great. :)


3rd and final shave with the Asylum Evolution tonight.



I started off my first pass with a Nacet blade and it felt quite harsh. I stopped the blade for the Astra I used yesterday and it was as smooth as the shave yesterday.

I've really enjoyed trying this razor out and, apart from the blade alignment issue, it's proven to be an excellent razor.

Many thanks to @Paul, @riverrun for organising the pass around and giving me the chance to try out this razor. It'll be on the way back to its owner tomorrow. [emoji846]
