    Yes I found the Yaqi head a perfect match for the Cooper baseplate.

    Oh my, you need to find a NEW. Some feel they are the best Gillette razors made.

    This morning the Cooper MonoBilt proved once again why it is king. Super easy and super smooth. It was one of those shaves where you keep checking to see if you actually have a blade in the razor. I've also been quite impressed with the 7 O'Clock Permasharp Stainless blades from India. To me they are just as sharp and smooth as the Super Platinum and hang out in the top tier along with the finest Russian steel. With only two more shaves left of the Amici I will dedicate myself to finishing it off this week! Lasts but not least the Yaqi Finest fan performed excellently. It had more backbone then the sivertip but not as much as the finest bulb. None of the Yaqi badger brushes that I have tried have has any scritch to them and have only shed a couple of hairs of their first few latherings. Have a great day my friends!

    It’s mild for sure. If you tighten the handle to much the head closes up and it won’t shave right. It’s super light.

    Looks like plastic to me but I can’t tell between plastic and Bakelite anyway. I think what happens is if you tighten down too much on the screw it forces the center down too much and the plastic gives way to the pressure. I did that and I had zero blade gap on one side. The center screw looks steel to me but I don’t know if it is or isn’t.
