This is the new Yaqi Katana.

I've seen at the Yaqi Shaving retailer in Australia.
It's the Slim version of the Single Edge Half DE blade (SHaDE) with the Cobbled geometry.
I really like the new head, as well the slender and classic handle.
It'll be available in four colors:
• White
• Space Chrome
• Black
• Black Metal
For me the chromed / silver one is a true beauty.
But I think It's not the kind of mild shaver I prefer.

Three good ideas, all in one:
- SHaDE
- Cobbled
- Colonial Razors V2 original handle

Not my cup of tea, I love mild shavers.
But lot's of people will find a great tool.
And colors are very nice too.
For me, a winner.

It's available the new Yaqi Single Edge head.
This is the slim version, with Cobbled geometry, of the half DE blade razor.
So I call it SCHaDE, of which I like the gunmetal.
Formerly on the Australian shop It's Katana.
And I've fed the monkey via Aliexpress.
For now, just a pic.

The SCHaDE head is a pleasure.
Very light, 22g.
Ultra compact, only 8mm high.

Very slim and easy to handle, in any situation.
It is not a pussy.
It beats, and is not to be underestimated.
But It does it with grace and fairplay.

Simple and intuitive to control.
With the right technique ...

The light handle is nice.
But this geometry is a bit too aggressive for my taste.
Today I've switched on something a little more consistent.

I find more comfortable, with less power on the head.
And I love the color combination ...

This might be a stupid question, but does it really take half a DE blade?

How do you do that?
Cut them in half or so?

never seen this, excuse my ignorance!

A I can’t speak to this specific razor, but I have a few different styles that take a half DE blade. They snap in two relatively easy, provided you’re able to keep clear of the actual blade sides. A couple companies also sell half blades which are far more convenient and don’t suffer from occasional bent corners from the bending process, but obviously variety is lacking.
