These are both awesome razors, but I'm on a quest to keep only 1 DE and neither of these is going to dethrown the CG that has become my daily driver.  Both are in excellent condition.  Both retail for $125, asking $100 shipped for each.  I know these are relatively new to the market so feel free to ask if you have any questions.


First up is a Rex Supply Company Envoy (3-piece).  I think this is probably my favorite looking razor on the market right now.  It's a very efficient and smooth shaver, the handle has phenomenal grip to it and a great overall balance.  It's just a bit heavier than I prefer in a DE for daily shaving.  Comes with all original packaging.

Next up is a new DE razor from Yates Precision Manufacturing (yatesprecision.com) that's completely fresh to the market, only around 200 total of these have been made so far (this one is from the most recent batch).  It's machined from 316 stainless and given a stonewashed finish.  I am honestly pleasantly surprised by how cool this razor is, certainly a departure from most of the other DE offerings currently available.  The stonewashed finish gives a very rugged "tooled" look to it, but it is excellently finished without any machining marks or other blemishes.  If you like audible feedback this razor gives a ton, probably even more than the Gen1 Charcoal Goods or Gillette NEWs.  I also found I like the shave angle, which is a little bit steeper (handle closer to face) than most other DE razors out there.  It is surprisingly efficient without being harsh, despite a moderate blade gap of .64mm and neutral blade exposure.  My only real gripe is the length of the handle which is a full 4".  The top cap uses the standard 10-32 threading so you can use other handles, but the design of the bottom of the baseplate limits handle options to those that are 8mm or less at the top.  Overall weight is 93g, the handle weighs 57g.  If you like trying new razors or just looking for a new mid-aggressive razor that would be great as a daily shaver, this one might be for you.  I will probably revisit this razor down the road if/when some shorter handle options are available.

After any PayPal fees or shipping / insurance should be applied on top such that in the end he gets $100.

Our BST rules require that the sale price include PayPal fees and domestic shipping.   The Seller needs to please revise the price accordingly.  The price may either stay the same or be raised, but must include PayPal fees and shipping.

Thanks.
