    Sad to say the Torqued is on it’s way. It’s headed to @joamo as @Jayaruh is celebrating SEptember with his single edge razors. He has asked to be moved to the end of the line.

    Final word on the Torqued. Other than the Bunny, I don’t remember being this resistant to passing on a razor. Super intuitive and easy to get the right angle. Never a nick or weeper or any difficulty at all and one of the closer shaving razors out there. Not the closest but certainly above average - and all without any trace of razor burn. 10/10 for the Torqued :happy093:

    I received the Tourqued from Karl G today and had my first shave with it.
    I had a 4 day growth for it to mow down. Loading up a Viking Sword blade (my favorite) and whipped up a bowl of milled Speick stick while my towel got good and hot.
    I found the perfect angle on my first stroke and it efficiently wiped out the whiskers in 3 pass shave.
    I normally use a straight and because of my growth pattern rarely get a BBS on the neck with those. When I really want that smooth face feel, my go to is a Merkur 37C so I'm familiar with slants.
    The Tourqued is an efficient and well designed and executed example of a slant, although very light in weight.

    It was a big Honeydo weekend and only had the opportunity to use the Tourqued one more time. Performed very well.
    It will be on its way to @jimjo1031 later today.
    Thanks to @twhite for the opportunity to try the Tourqued!

    Every time I look at that razor, I think, "That razor is a thing of beauty." I am glad I will get to try it out during Open Comb OCtober.
