Received this last week and just got around to shaving with it today as it needed a light honing.

Wacker Chevalier 6/8

Cool razor and I also like your matching brush! How did it shave for you?

Killer looking blade. That thing has to be a great shaver based on looks alone.

It has a 2.75" blade and shaves like a dream, super easy to handle and with the shorter length it's really easy to maneuver.

Beautiful in many ways. 
On the size of the blades: Is there a "minimum" recommendable size? Is 2.75'' you sweet spot? I hardly ever see the blade size in razor descriptions, except for kamisoris. 
Enjoy your beaut.

Generally straight's are in the 2.75"-3.0" but average 2 7/8" from my limited experience, the Wacker is my shortest blade, if it had a standard square cut it would be closer to 3" and yes after using it I really like the length but I have several Filarmonica's that are very close to 3.0" and the shave as well but are a much thinner grind which has alot to do with comfort.

The scales and blade shale are spot on , love the rounded end to contrast. Blonde horn is just sexy luxury IMO?
