Impression

Ahhhhh ... I love Tabac!

The razor is a Tech clone, simply marked "Germany". The head is well made but the handle looks a little rustic and it is small, so off it popped and on went my templ8 version ball ended handle. The extra weight is excellent and made the razor quite intuitive with a narrow angle, but effective when you catch it.

Alas, I did not enjoy the blade. Used once on a few day's growth with a seriously aggressive razor worked out. In a Tech/clone it felt rough. Trying the blade on a fingertip, it proved to be quite blunted. So, out it goes ... two runs. Not a great blade.
