Very nice.

I like how you increased the size and kept the lines proportional. The handle scaled up nicely!

Thank you Charlie. It will be interesting to see how the patina develops. Here is another shot of the razor.

Received mine this morning and all I can say is WOW!  This razor, with its heft and longer handle, is promising to be a nice shaver.  Not too bad to look at either! Biggrin   First shave impressions soon...

Shaved with the Brass EVO this afternoon: Evo, Astra, L&L Trismegistus.  Maybe it was my mind playing tricks but this razor gave me a near perfect 3-pass shave and IMO, better than the still nice shaves from the original EVOs.  Love the longer handle and weight - a lot!

Phil and TSN, this is a winner!  Cool

A brass Evo is coming to France!
I enjoyed the standard one but handle was too short.
The XL should fit perfectly.
Very excited now!
