It's Zazor/Zazen Time!!
Lather: K Shave Worx Zazen soap
Razor: The Legendary Zazor
Blade: Astra SP
Post: K Shave Worx Zazen splash
I was way overdue for a Zazor shave. Each time I use it, I'm reminded what a pleasure it is to use. The K Shave Worx Zazen performed well as always, and paired well with the Zazor to complete the Eastern theme of the shave.
When I discovered the Zazor, I already had the Razorine.
As an italian project, with the same geometry of Daune, all made of brass, I love it.
But I like much more the light ones ...
I completely agree. I love the look of Razorine. It is a very elegant design. But as for shaving, I much prefer the lighter weight and better weight balance of the Zazor.

Chinese feather clone for half DE blades.
How do you like it? I saw those recently and was thinking about getting one.
I have one as well, and they are excellent!! It's actually modeled after the Kai Captain Razor. It's probably one of the most forgiving half-DE shavettes I've used. They are tricky to load at first, but easy once you get the hang of it. They cost anywhere between $10-15 on Aliexpress, and it is money well spent.
@feeltheburn it's not bad. I also have an universal shavette I like that more. It js more like a straight razor. It is easier to cut yourself with a shavette then with a straight razor.
For the first time since Jimmy Carter was president, I did something new shaving. I shaved with a shavette. A Tuckmar with half a DE blade. I think I should have used something different, but it was what I had. Shave was not bad, one weeper that I do not know from where. Soap gave good cushioning and no burn from the Old Spice
Thanks. That was very helpful. I've got a Universal already so you just saved me some money.
Feather AC SS Kamisori with Feather Pro Blades !!
Just received my Parker SRX today, I’m still waiting for a package with my brush and bowl to get started
This will be my first ever experience with traditional shaving and I plan to master this damn shavette like a pro in the mid to long term
There will probably be painful moments but I’m ready to face them
Man I’m trying to open up the shavette, I have to say it’s not easy ^^
OK just found out how to do it, it’s quite easy actually
