    Like most of your tools, a safety razor will perform better and last longer the better you look after it. Dissembling the razor and cleaning with an old toothbrush is recommended, the more the better. A soak in highly diluted vinegar will work wonders also.

    It is also recommended to take out the razor blade after each shave, this will release any build up of soap and stubble. Having a magnet handy is a great way to keep your razor blades between shaves.

    Minimal Blade Exposure

    Like a smooth irritation free shave? Then the AKARI is for you, with its minimal blade exposure the Akari is super efficient and gentle on the skin.

    Good daily driver

    I was very impressed. Used it on a 4 days growth and worked well. Was definitely a mild shave. I can see it being my daily driver (as they say). Good quality head and fitted perfectly on the standard handle I had (will next buy the SS handle to go with it). I currently use a Rockwell 6C and would say it is in between the 3 and 4 plates. If you want a SS razor and didnt want to pay big $ then this is the way to go. Buy the head as it will fit on most standard handles see if you like it then go for the handle. Supper was impressed with the advice from David at thewetshavingco and glad I took his advice. I got to say great service so far and cant believe the daily deals to come up (worth the sign up for the news letter) will definitely be getting some more gear.

    An interesting head

    This one is quite interesting. There is very little blade exposure, so the shaving angle is quite high. Because of that angle, it feels like the blade is scraping over your skin...but, I've used it twice now and no razor burn, so it clearly is not scraping along your skin in actuality, it just has that feel. Machining is pretty good, I do wish Yaqi would take the time to polish all the machining marks from the bottom of the top cap on their CNC heads, but that's a minor quibble. The head also covers the blade tabs too, a win in my book (but some people prefer exposed blade tabs).

    My review on the Akari.

    Sandwiched with a loyal London Bridge blade and fully prepped, preshave and lather, I hardly felt the first WTG stroke . Smooth, remarkably smooth with an effortless glide allowing the instrument to make its own noise from the weight. By the end of the second pass XTG...I actually could have stopped as the results were that good. Third pass pleased with the characteristics of this revamped razor, it simply gave me that seriously good BBS, we all thrive for and didn't get yesterday with the Knights Helmet. Conclusion: I have the mild Henson AL13 which is top dollar, I was tempted to add the medium to my repertoire of habitually uses but this purchase has put the stop to that. Henson shouldn't worry too much as the Yaqi is different, to some with budgets like myself it's as close as you can get at the moment but obviously not the same. I think medium Henson users will relate to this more than mild ones, especially with its less boring shaving character. I believe this product is a winner and a serious look to the future regarding design and effortless performance.

    Got this razor head to try, generally don't like medium razors as they are too aggressive for my skin. This thing was amazing, it was smooth, felt great on the skin and gave me the closest shave I think I have ever had. Highly recommend this razor head.
