Time for you to get one!

I'm not sure how start this review, so lets talk about the design/engineering first. For me, the designed is made for the way I hold a razor, the way I shave. The "divot" between the heel and shank is ideal for placing my thumb when doing close followup strokes after my 2nd or 3rd pass. The tang (tail) length is ideal because I hold the razor with 1 finger on the shank and 3 on the tang. Holding it this way gives me great control when shaving around my nose and chin.
Lastly, the beauty of this razor is just second to none,has no equal.

It's worth what it costs.

I'm new to this, I've never shaved with a barber's razor.
I liked it a lot, I didn't cut myself.
I highly recommend it.
The design in general is excellent and yes, it is premium.
It is worth every penny and I am very happy.

Thank you Manuel.

One of the best shavettes on the market.

Stunning shavette. The design is an absolute triumph. Stunning to look at, it is a perfect combination of art and function.

The magnetic clasp is absolute genius. It take a a bit of getting used to, but once you do you will begin to wonder why every shavette doesn't use this system.

Shaves are excellent. Non irritating and you can shave with a shallower angle than any other shavette that I know of.

Overall excellent.

Something about the Tedalus Essence caught my attention and I kept going back to it. Maybe the blade's design, or the deep thumb notch, I'm not sure. The big price gave me the chills. I didn't particularly care for the long tang, and I though the handle was too long , but I figured they came with the package and that the package looked enticing overall. In the end I had to have the razor. I've shaved with the traditional straight razor for many years, and I've also enjoyed my Feather Artist Club razors immensely. The Tedalus Essence well complements my Artist Club razor collection. What a remarkable shaver this razor is. The Essence, like the Feather, is still not as forgiving as the traditional straight razor. So watch your pressure and angle. I still don't like the long tang and also think the handle is a little too long, but the close and comfortable shave makes up for those short comings. Actually, the razor is still comfortable in my small hands. Go figure. Most of all, I really like having the Essence in my shave den. It's a fabulous razor.

Thank you very much for the review and for sharing your opinion with us!
We're happy to hear that you like the overall package.

Perfect balance and soo smooth

I have been using Feather AC and KAI shavettes, both folding and Kamisoi style before buying the Tedalus Essence.

I have been shaving with it a couple of times now. The Essence is rapidly growing on me, as it is very intuitive to use, very smooth and is perfectly balanced. It feels like a natural extension of my hand, and is at least on par with my other shavettes.

Very well done Manuel!

If I could have two wishes, it would be a Kamisori version and a choice of wooden scales as I love the feeling and look of that.

Thank you very much for your review and your kind words, Mark!

A Masterpiece

I have been a wet shaver for many years. Ideally I would like to use a straight razor, but I do not have the time for everything around (stropping, honing etc). So in addition to 2 DE razors, Rex Ambassador and Rockwell 6S, the shavette has become my choice. Very close to the feeling of a straight razor and always perfect sharpness. I have several Feather Artist Club DX that I’m very happy with. But then by chance I got to know about Tedalus. The more I read, the more curious I became and finally I could not resist buying it. Now I have been using it for almost 2 months and I can only say: Wow!!! A real masterpiece. First-class material straight through and as close to the feeling of a razor as you can ever get. Perfect balance and a real beauty to look at. If I have to find some cons, the 10-year warranty is not so generous. Both the Rex Ambassador and the Rockwell 6S have a lifetime warranty. Furthermore, I find some tool marks that make the finish not top notch. But it does not affect the use at all.
So… I lift my hat and bow my head for Manuel who created this completely unique shavette. I can highly recommend it for purchase. Actually I’m considering buying another to have a spare one. I try to have that for everything I love. Except for my wife lol. (But I have to kids…).

Wow! Thank you very much for this detailed review.

Traumhaft schönes Messer für traumhafte Rasuren

Aufmerksam geworden durch das tolle und außergewöhnliche Design - die Klingen anderer Wechselklingenmesser sind doch ziemlich ähnlich - habe ich zugeschlagen. Versand nach Deutschland ging sehr fix - nach fünf Tagen hielt ich mein Messer in den Händen. Anfangs war ich wegen des sehr schmalen Erls musste ich mich beim Halten und Führen des Messers etwas umgewöhnen. Ich habe aber das Gefühl, dass die Kontrolle viel besser ist. Oberfläche und Riffel machen ein Abrutschen unmöglich. Das Einlegen der Klingen funktioniert reibungslos - der starke Magnet weckt Vertrauen. Meine anderen Messer nutze ich kaum noch.

Hallo Christian

Wow! Vielen Dank für Deine Bewertung!
Es freut uns sehr, dass Dir unser Essence Rasiermesser solche Freude bereitet.

Ein Rasiermesser der in seiner Klasse konkurrenzlos ist.

Die makellose Verarbeitung des Rasiermessers ist sehr wertig.
Die Geometrie des Rasiermessers ist sehr abgestimmt und verzeiht für Anfänger unheimlich viele Fehler beim rasieren, den richtigen Rasierwinkel findet man ganz schnell.
Die Verwendung von Single Blades (SE) sowie double Edge Blades bringen noch mehr Vorteile für das Rasiermesser.
Aus meiner Sicht könnte der Griff des Rasiermessers etwas kleiner ausfallen um das Rasiermesser noch bessere Balance zu verleihen.
Von mir eine klare Empfehlung!
