Has anyone seen this razor. It’s like a refined Gillette Slim Adjustable. Looks promising for $35 USD on amazon for an adjustable razor!

It’s cheaper than the Qshave Parthenon.

Mark certainly doesn't hide his enthusiasm. I presume it's a Baily product like the other Vikings offerings but nothing in the Baily shop.

Someone who is behind the manufacturing of the razor replied on one of the youtube comments. I did posted and asked if the razor truly is 100% brass construction + does it clogs up when someone shaves after not shaving 2-3 days, this seems to be the issue with the Parthenon if you don't shave daily, it clogs up although its fine if you shave daily with it.

These are the specs from their Amazon page:
EXPERIENCED Users only - this is Vikings Blade's most hardcore razor
• ADJUSTABLE aggressiveness + compact ASYMMETRICAL head (exposed blade edges) = superb maneuverability
• SMART Drainage System with RATTLING end-tip to drain trapped soap water
• PREMIUM high end specs: Brass, 109g (3.85oz), 117mm (4.58")
• NOT for safety razor beginners, NO trainer blades provided

I think that should mean no blades come with the razor

The best Gillette replica Slim Adjustable I have seen and in brass.
Now how it shaves is a different matter which I don’t own one yet.

It takes a lot of design features from the Parthenon with the long handle, brass construction, no drain holes, TTO, and continuous adjustment ring going only one turn, but I remember a while back where there was that issue about the similarities in their design and Baili. I will have to wait for more reviews, although I am constantly reminded of my Super Adjustable 109 Gold every time I look at it.

I skipped ahead a few times, but stopped at the, "Close the pores," comment. That and the guy seemed WAY to enthusiastic about the razor almost to the point like I felt I was watching a cheesy infomercial. I tried the Parthenon and whiffed. Your turn. Tell me how it is.

-edit: The guy even recommends the Perfecto Badger Shaving Brush........yikes.

Jeez, what a cornball. I wonder how much he got paid by Vikings Blade to do that video...

Hey, but look at that nice cardboard box with the beautiful artwork it ships in, AND when you open it up, there is a pearl white leatherette box that the razor actually comes in which you can use as a travel case. That alone must be worth about $1.

EFDan I agree with you about the Parthenon. Lots of excitement and talk until the razor was actually delivered, and then the thread died. I was lucky to get into the other adjustable deal, because that one was the real deal (even at setting 6). ;-)
BTW - I think the guy need to stop drinking coffee before he gives shave reviews.
