A little bit later than planned:


The SSSeygus Extrem.
After the initial mild models Seygusrazor now issues models with a wider (0.6 mm) blade gap.
The SSSeygus Extrem is in 2 versions:

A aluminum anodised (red) model - OC (left) and a titanium model - SB (nickel plated with
teflon coating - right).
Almost traditionally, they are 4-piece razors: the head is 2-piece and the handle is 2-piece.
The handle consists of a (short) aluminum/titanium part and a SS part - it's there for the
balance.

The razors "in pieces":

Weights of the individual parts:

Left the aluminum SSSeygus:
Head 14 g
SS part 20 g
Handle 20 g
Total 54 g  holes to

Right the titanium SSSeygus:
Head 14 g
SS part 20 g
Handle 25 g
Total 59 g

The titanium SB razor has rather big holes for the "transport" of the lather:

These holes are 4 mm wide (and very effective).

Attempted to illustrate the differences in blade gap:

Below the SSSeygus SB.

Shaved with both Extrems for a couple of weeks - after a short learning period these
razors are terrific - probably more effective than their predecessors .....

Do these razors have any flaws ?
Yes - 1 tiny, tiny flaw: the threaded end of the cap is a tiny bit (a few hundredths of a mm)
too thick.
Inserting and removing the blade needs some attention ...

For the rest: wonderful razors !    Shy

So just to confirm, the titanium model is nickel plated?

According to Jose Antonio (who made these razors) the titanium razor is nickel plated, then teflon coated ....

Great info and photos.  I would like to learn more.  I have the original Seygus (purchased directly in early 2016) and very happy.  

Thanks

I'm sure a SSSeygus Extrem would make you very happy as well .... Angel

I like the looks but the only thing that I don't like this extension. Adding it makes it look like those cheap Chinese razors I see in eBay .

To me, the extension looks "industrial", the rest of the razor looks well crafted.  I also have a Hone 15a which has won design awards.   I agree there is no chance the Seygus will bring home any modern design trophies.  

I find the length very good with the extension.  I would think the Seygus would be too short without.
