This term is used to describe how your YAQI Razor will shave.
It is a reference to a combination of:
Blade Gap - measured between the Cutting edge of the blade and the razor guard.
Blade Exposure - measured by how far the blade extends past the protective plates.
Blade Gap + Blade Exposure = Shave Profile ~ displayed as a value out of 10
with 1/10 being the Minimum Gap & Blade Exposure
and 10/10 being the Maximum Gap & Blade Exposure.
For a great shave thats close, select a Safety Razor with Minimal Shave Profile (
Min: 1-3/10). Any Safety Razor that has the Mellon Head DOC is a great choice.
Once you have technique a Safety Razor with a Medium Shave Profile (
Medium: 4-6/10) will give you an even closer shave.
The higher Shave Profile heads are rarely sold as a complete razors. But thankfully we have a select few, or you can purchase these heads
and fit them onto your existing handles.
