Just received my new Tedalus Essence Shavette.  This is a real beauty.  Exceptional design and engineering.  Great balance and feel.  The razor can take either a DE or SE blade.  The blade is held in place with magnets.  The shave is as good as it looks.  I have all the Feather shavettes and they are tools compared to this razor.  Its a Ferrari compared to VW's.

Couldn't agree more, I had the luck of being a tester for the Essence and could follow the different models along the way until the finished product, I have over 200 shaves with it and still my favourite shavette (of over 30) and the closest thing to a straight.

I don't have one, but have read about it.  It seems like an upscale Feather AC, but cleverly designed to accept half a DE blade or a variety of SE blades.  

The $349 price surprised me.

Thanks Mike.

Clearly for that kind of do-rei-me one must be an experienced user.

Is the handle aluminum?

Is there a way to tighten the pivot screw?

handle is 6061 aluminum Hard anoadized, you can tighten the screw but so far no need.
