I have been using a straight razor for many years. So when Shing asked for volunteers to test shave, I was happy to help.
With straight razors getting the geometry of the grind right is key. Shing got it bang on.
Thin even bevel and a blunt at the toe of the square point so it doesn't dig into your cheeks .
It's shoulder less at the heel which is alway good as it makes honing easier and less likely to damage stones.
The design and weight is good and feels good in the hand.
The one thing that I would like slightly changed is the width of the handles where it meets the tang.
Keeping them the same width of the tang would give better control when stropping.
I grew a beard for a few week to give a good test.
The razor came well honed with a exellent edge. The shave was smooth with no tugging which is a good testament. After two passes I was good to go.
From bearded to smooth in two passes.
I was very impressed with the performance just as good as any vintage razor I've owned and shave ready on delivery. Good stuff all round, now bin those electric razors and join the revolution ✊😁.
