Very good and high quality i love it , i am a barber I use it for single edge and feather blades it’s so easy to use . If you want to make your life easy just purchase Essence razor.

Tedalus Shavette

Very good shavette perfectly finished! Lies very well in the hand and is perfectly balanced. For me stand the half blades a little too far out, unfortunately, could not try various other blades such as Feather or Kasho. Nevertheless, it is very high quality razor and well made. Would me at any time to get one again!

Hello Thomann

Thank you so much for your review! I highly suggest that you try Feather blades if you have the opportunity. To me, the razor shows its full potential when it is used with single-edge blades such as Feather, Schick, etc.

I wish you many more great shaves!

A Feather AC and Kai Captain users impressions

I've been using a Kai Captain or Feather Artist Club DX/SS/SR to shave with and have been very happy. So when I learned about the Essence, I first thought "I don't need that, it won't do anything my Kai/Feather does". Then I had some cash to spend on myself after a while and decided to try it.
First things first, the stand: It's nice and heavy, doesn't topple over, and looks neat. It's very practical and does what it's supposed to.

The razor tho, is the main feature. First off, it looks really good (and when placed on the stand it really looks good). But when you pick it up, you feel something else: build quality. It's got good weight, and it's extremely well-balanced. The razor feel solid in your hand and it doesn't get slippery, the grip is great even with soapy and wet fingers. The very thin spine (much thinner than the Feather AC DX) allows for a much shallower angle meaning the shave is even smoother than what the Kai or Feather's can provide. Simply put, the Essence gives me a better shave than the competition, exceeding them in the build quality, shave quality, and esthetics departments. My Kai and Feather's are retired now, leaving the daily shave to the Essence.

In short, if you're on the the fence because you already have a Feather or a Kai: Get the Essence. You won't regret it.

Wow! Thank you very much fo this great review Fredrik!

Fantastic Razor

I first became aware of this razor on YouTube - HandleBarberDave. He says it's the closest thing to using a straight. He's not wrong. I also have the same opinion.

I'm currently trying out different blades and so far have found that the Feather Pro and Pro Guard suits me best. But that just my opinion - we are all different.

All in all I'm really glad I bought this. It looks the business too!

Thank you so much for your review!
I'm happy to hear that you agree with our message, that the Essence Razor is the closest thing to using a straight razor.
I wish you many more great shaves!

I didn't think the reality is better than the photo.
But when I unpacked the box I was WOW!
So what can I say... keep doing the good work!

Thank you so much for your review!
I'm really happy to hear that you love the razor.
I wish you many more great shaves.

This is a really good straight razor.
Perfection seems high. Built to last a lifetime.
In Korea, 5 of my friends, including me, bought it at the same time, and they are all satisfied. We wish Tedalus endless development.

I hope many people who purchase this razor will enjoy shaving. Suhwan Chae from Korea
