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 (net).  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.

Depending on payment method, "net" is what I would like to have.  So if paying with Paypal good and services or another payment service that charges fees, add fees to the asking price.  Shipping is included in the asking price.

The Yates Precision Manufacturing razor has that nice final finishing touch that I love so much and is so underrated: a nice finish on the bottom side of the base plate. Karve is like this, too. It shows an extra level of attentiveness that is just wonderful. GLTWS.

I agree. I think as more make their way out into people’s hands they will be a lot more popular.
