In the SOTD thread there was a posting by theunnamed [Barbaros Razors] that showcased the new adjustable he is collaborating on with Murat from rocnel .

Stainless steel, he sent over some additional images of the razor. There are currently only two prototypes that are being tested in the field but it looks very interesting thus far.

Pretty cool looking!

This looks like a very interesting razor!

So many new shiny razors appearing on the wet shaving scene.  I might have to look into getting a 2nd job! Tongue

That is one beautiful razor. I hope they don't charge an arm and a leg for it.

Hi All,

I was hoping to write a much detailed review but with the iPhone 7's launch the work is crazy and if I don't write this review now I guess I will never write it. So, if I pass some details please don't hesitate to ask questions. I will do my best to answer.

It is actually great to see two Turkish razor companies collaborating to make something so wonderful. I had chance to try this beautiful razor for a week. I even found some excuses and kept it two extra days before passing it to the next tester. It is great to finally have a completely stainless steel adjustable in the market. I hope other producers will follow. Some people might know that my favourite DE razor is Merkur Futur. If I had to choose one razor for the rest of my life that would be my razor of choice. I have to admit that, for the first time in my life there is a razor that I like more than Merkur Futur. I just hope it will not tire my wallet too much when they announce the price. Smile

Razor is made of three pieces: Baseplate, Topcap and Handle. If you tear apart the Baseplate you get four pieces: base piece, top piece, spring and a screw. It is really a simple but clever design. When you load the blade and screw the handle into the head spring tension allows you to adjust the blade angle. It is a wonderful design really. Since the handle can be removed 3rd party producers can make different handles and offer them for B&R Adjustable razors. Unfortunately usual DE handles will fit in but leave the razor in most aggressive setting.

When you completely screw in the handle the razor shows level 1. You can adjust the level of aggressiveness up to level 8. It is actually possible to make a second turn to go further to 16 in total. I went as far as 13 in total but after 8 the razor just gets more aggressive but not necessarily more effective. Using the second turn will make it only more dangerous. So just stick with the first round and don't make a second turn.

In level 8 I got a cleaner shave than Merkur Futur. This is something really rare for me. Only thing that would give me a closer shave before was a Feather AC SS shavette loaded with Feather Pro blades. This razor is not only effective but really forgiving. I didn't have any nicks even in the most aggressive settings. It is definitely beyond my expectancies.

I made some improvement suggestions though:

- Removing the B&R on the topcap or using the nice small font version. (They said that they are planning to remove it.)
- Topcap and Baseplate must have a marking to indicate what sides need to match otherwise you don't reach to number 1 when you completely screw the handle.
- Maybe some colour might make the numbers look nicer.

As you can see I couldn't even offer a lot of change. It is just a wonderful razor. I really hope to get one.

I also shot a short video. I am sorry sometimes it is a little out of frame but I didn't have anybody at home to help me for the whole week.

It's a nice design.

My only knock is... When I'm using my progress, I like to do the first pass on 3 or 4 and the second pass at 2. I adjust it mid shave with wet hands,, sometimes in the shower. I don't like that you have to hold the head with the blade to adjust, i prefer the progress adjustment at the bottom of the handle, much safer with wet and soapy hands.

It's a nice design, as far as cost goes I heard that will cost around $300 and will come with 2 handles, one shorter and other longer.

I can totally understand your concern. Since my favourite adjustable is Futur I never really thought about it.
