Yes I have one and mine is definitely a keeper I agree about you could argue all day on the price point. But IMO.its well worth it..Good shave was had this evening. Went on setting 5 and finished on 4 for a real nice 2 pass shave. A Gillette 7 O’Clock Green was used and it really paired nicely with the TFC Brass. For me I believe the chrome version offers more blade feel, a wider range and a smoother ride. But, still the Yaqi TFC Brass is no slouch in the cutting department and it feels of much better quality because it is. It does have some shortcomings such as numbers on the setting dial could have been painted with black enamel and the indicator dot could have used a nice speck of red for visual appeal and identification. The handle though not bad nor slippery feeling would have been better with true knurling in my humble opinion. In reality though, it’s much better than above average in overall performance. Price is debatable and can be argued for or against on its price point until the cows come home. It’s more than capable in terms of taking on multiple days of heavy whisker growth in the upper setting range and still easy enough on it’s lowest setting to be a smooth and easy daily driver. A solid, solid razor from Yaqi.

Back in stock Jon and available on a Black Friday deal:
No drag/suction Ben?Ok, so this will be my last post on this. That’s an actual promise not like a promise not to get any more razors or soaps etc.
5-5-5. Using a relatively cheap soap / cream. Simpsons Unscented.
As before, an exemplary shave. Clean and close with no issues at all. I still don’t feel like I’m in danger of cutting myself. But am never complacent.
As mentioned, the slight play and or rattle persists. I think it’s the design and part and parcel of the razor. It doesn’t seem to affect the performance and maybe I’ll just get used to it.
I simply can’t fault the performance. So if you’re sat on the fence, just try one. I think you’ll enjoy it.
Have a good weekend all.
