    OK - here are the first photos. I shaved with Claymore Evo tonight - dolphin smooth. He is al 316L stainless steel. Al machined and sand blasted to a lovely finish. Apologies I am not a great photographer so I will strive to get some better ones soon.

    I will open for pre-orders on Monday at the latest.

    Now that looks pretty pretty good. Curious about balance.

    Does it really show? LOl I have some new fangled stuff that has been given to me. It all works. None of it is as cool as vintage. Put a dress on a pig and you just have pretty bacon...still a pig.

    Update - weights and dimensions

    Handle 90mm 71g
    Head - 33g

    The handle has a standard M5 x 0.8 thread so any razor handle will fit just fine.

    Just completed 12 very good Shave with the Chunky Original ES Claymore V1, with a Kai CT Protouch MG. Shame this new one is not made in Scotland, for me the new one has lost some of its desirability.

    • Aggression - mid-aggressive. Hard to gauge it with a SE blade as the blades are so stiff.
    • Head only - bien sure mes amis - of course a head only option!!
    • Blades - AC from Feather. I have shaved with Professional, Proguard and Softguard - all awesome in this razor.
    Feather AC blades are the bomb - in my humble opinion, the best shave this side of a nicely honed straight with none of the hassles.

    I'd definitely be interested in the head only option. Not too keen on that handle design. The head is standard handle thread?
