I was also curious about this razor. I love the idea that more companies are making reproductions of expensive vintage unobtanium razors. I wasnt sure about the aluminium, but Ive got the bakelite open comb from Phoenix, an I think its an amazing razor. So Ill eventually bite on this one to I think.

It's definitely got more substantial feel than the Bakelite. I was shocked with the solidity of this razor. I've used other aluminum razors, all of which feel flimsy, this feels unbreakable, just light. I'm in love with it mate

The aluminium they use in modern razors is a strong, rigid and corrosion resistant.
Not like vintage razors which don't last and usually fail with the thread first.
Don't let this stop you purchasing a modern one.
Tempted too with this one (y)
