Haircut & Shave Co N075

The Haircut & Shave Company N075 razor is relative new on the market. In 2019 the razor entered the market. The Haircut & Shave Company already produced shaving brushes and shaving creams. The N075 is the first razor of this company. When I saw pictures of the razor I immediately was interested in it. The black aluminium base plate gives the razor an in my opinion unique look. Then I came in the happy position to take a second hand razor over from a fellow wetshaver.

The weight of the razor is 130 grams, which is heavy for a razor. Personally I am a fan of high weighted razors. The handle of the razor is thick and puts a lot of people away who don’t like that. However, for me it turned out to be a handle with great grip. The knurling on the handle is very sophisticated and holds very nicely in the hand.

The blade gap is 0,75 mm. That is not very much, however the razor is created to give a smooth but efficient shave. In my opinion the makers were successful in that mission. For me it is the most comfortable razor in my den. You even don’t feel the blade do it’s job. After the first shave I thought it would be impossible to cut yourself with this razor. The mildness of the razor caused me to commit a mistake that a lot of beginners commit: putting (light) pressure on the razor. So I had to deal with some irritation issue’s. However, when properly used this razor is very smooth.

Despite the mildness, the razor is still very efficient. A BBS result in three passed can without problems be accomplished. Currently I am still in the phase of testing blades in the razor. The Gillette Silver Blue and the Treet Platinum are now the blades I liked the most in this razor.

After I bought my Timeless I discovered there are razors which are more efficient. However, for a daily shave the H&S N075 is efficient enough. What I do like about this razor is the combination of smoothness and efficiency and also the unique look of the combination of stainless steel and black aluminium.

Due to feedback of the users the Haircut & Shave Company decided to develop a base plate which is also of stainless steel. Also the handle which is too thick for much people, will be redesigned.

Great shaver indeed but had to let it go, handle and alum baseplate where not to my liking, was planning on getting the stainless steel version but now I'm not really sure anymore, so many other razors coming out.

I heard very good things about this razor and anxiously waiting for the stainless steel base plate version. However, this comes at a time when there are many other razors soon to arrive and so I am not sure if this will be the one I get.

I followed the Janus project, the updates in the mail for the last few months, and I think it's a wonderful razor.
The price hold me back........ Hope you like the quality and the shaves with the Janus as much as it looks @UnShaven !

For me the price was also a steep mountain to take and my brain said don’t buy but a have a very naughty finger and this didn’t obey my brain. When my brain was a little off my finger hit strangely enough the buy button. And before my brain could respond I was the owner of a Janus Razor.
Shit happens.

So at the end of your salary there is still some month left? ;)
There are plenty of weeds that are edible so if you want you could probably safe some money on those soups and stews and wring out another razor or so.
