Yaqi Razor

#5
I've had mine for a while now, pretty much since it was released and it took me a few shaves to get used to it.

It's on the mild side of things, easily milder than a DE89 style head for sure, slightly more aggressive/efficient than a Tech.

But as ever YMMV.

I do like the quality of Yaqi gear, the DLC just isn't doing it for me, so have ordered a new closed comb head, i think its more aggresive than the DLC

I signed up to Aliexpress and got the head directly from Yaqi delivered to UK for £5.4 1752022920-327743468.jpg 5004354431789066145.jpg

I received the new head today, very impressed, well made and nice finish, the blade tabs are covered and blade location is fool proof.

The shave is more aggressive than the double open comb, a step up from a Tech but still smooth and not scary.

I used a Voskhod and got a dfs shave, i still apply pressure so things can only improve.

I love it, best razor i have owned.

I have several Yaqi razors.
I absolutely love the "scalloped head" which looks like an ej89 but it's so much more efficient.

The DOC is a tad on the mild side for me but it's definitely more efficient than a tech.

Quality is flawless and the handle design is wonderful & ergonomic.

I have 4 of the scalloped head razors in different colors (gunmetal, black, gold and chrome). Very impressed!

They are great value for money, quality and finish are excellent, never thought i would get rid of my vintage Gillette for a Yaqi, glad i did
