    It's not a Blackland Vector.
    Maybe it's Victor ...

    Nope.
    Last phase of prototyping.
    Pics from a friend into Italian forum, who is a beta tester.

    Only similarity I see with a Vector is the squared off threaded post to go through the blade. Blade slots are in the base plate on the Yaqi and not pins in the top plate like the Vector. There is also a difference in the safety bar.

    I wonder if Blackland has a patent on the center post?

    Not for sure, It's not his invention.
    Blackland is the first to use in safety razor design.
    But this solution is used in different industries.

    Vector is totally different.
    This chinese homage has just (roughly) similar the shape of the topcap.
    Not the geometry.
    Not the material.
    Not the craftsmanship.

    It's for a different market.
    It's for someone who search the first SE razor AC style.
    And does NOT want / have the budget for.
    Or, a cheap (in comparison, NOT sure the price will be a couple of bucks) backup / travel option ... in addition to others more valuable razors.
    And, as always seen into aficionados communities this could be the first step into a new world (SE razors are a little niche!!).
    Where to find other great ones as Blackland Vector or Colonial Razors General.
    If this happens, this thread will be an advertisement ... FOR THEM.
