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!

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

The very essence of a straight razor...

I have been shaving with the Essence for a couple of weeks now and I am very pleased with the build quality, design and with its super tight tolerances. It shouts quality when you have it in your hand and the shave also has the quality feel of a freshly honed straight razor with perfect balance.
I found it very easy to load the Feather Pro Super AC blades which I have found to be the best AC blade in this razor (for me) because it feels very much like shaving with one of my straight razor's with the head of the razor just brushing my skin so it was very easy to find the correct angle almost straight away.
I love my Feather DX kamisori using the same blade and I will continue to use it in rotation because I like the feel of shaving with a kamisori (non folding) AC razor and i would
really love to see a kamisori version of this razor in the future but until then I will be more than happy to shave with this outstandingly beautiful razor that makes me look forward to my next shave!
I love this razor, thank you!

The Rolls Royce of Shavettes

I have used and do own many upper tier shavettes. This was something I just had to have. Functionally and aesthetically was a retirement gift and will be forever treasured. Even if I never used is a work of art. Just over the moon¬!
