Never mind the razor (although it looks class).
The box it comes in looks like a work of art, I'm thinking oak. Although I am more than willing to be shot down with anger.(y):)
Ps. I like wooden things, much better than plastic shite.
From the website = Box in solid wood, oak, ash, chestnut according to supply, also machined in our workshop in Aveyron.

Decided to try the shallow end of the pool today with the .80 Titanium head. The open comb and staright bar sides felt equally comfortable and the angle is easy to find. Don't ask me what the cutting angle is as I never put a protractor to my face. Let's just say it is easy to find the correct cutting angle and get a close shave. A little more buffing was needed to get to the same smooth shave I desire but was easily done without any irritation whatsoever. It's been a pleasure sampling this fine collection. It's clear Augustin has done his homework and trialing things before presenting rather than after the fact and then needing to correct things. Will try the SS 1.0 Gap tomorrow. Everyone have a great day !

Razor: Atelier Durdan "Le Maurice" 1.00 Gap 316L
Blade: Wizamet
Brush: Wolf Whisker Beehive/Badger
Soap: Ballenclaugh Honey and Tobacco

Another BEAUTIFUL shave with the Le Maurice this time with the 1.00 Gap SS and I believe this is the sweet spot for me. All 3 are smooth operators and efficient. In my opinion the only advantage the highest gap would be is for those that don't shave every day. Again, this is my opinion. This is a razor I would love to have in the Titanium polished 1.00 gap Straight Bar if I had the budget. Another shave tomorrow perhaps on video before sanitizing and boxing up the set to mail to AJSharp by Thursday. Have a great day everyone !
