This baseplate reminds me of a Timeless 0.95. It's that smooth. And the efficiency is incredibly good, all while being a very comfortable razor to use. This is absolutely a top notch razor at an incredible price for what you're getting. I'm so glad I took a chance on it.
Jake & his company are wonderful to do business with. They make a beautiful razor. Jake is very prompt in answering any questions or concerns. I have the M plate which provided me an easy 2 pass plus cleanup for a smooth shave(used Nacet blade). I might add that I have heavy dark whiskers. I know Jake offers 2 other baseplates, but the M plate does the job for me without worrying about nicks or irritation. This is my first stainless steel razor & expect it get more use than my other razors. Go for it & buy one!!
I don't think there are enough stars to cover my love and appreciation for the brand over all. every piece is so well engineered and incredibly designed. I love the shave of the M and the smoothness over all. its a must have plate.
I used a Derby blade & my shave was a mild smooth shave. Very happy with an excellent made razor.!!! (VLS)
I bought this base plate along with a top and a 3.5" handle, all in the stonewashed finish. The fit and finish is superb, and the razor consistently gives me mild and efficient shave in no more that three passes. I couldn't ask for more at any price.
