Bamboo: The Bamboo handle is 3½" long and weighs 56 grams. The handle has a nice matte finish, providing a secure grip without the need for knurling.
S1: The S1 is a mid aggressive, yet mild, solid bar slant razor with a .61 mm blade gap.

This tool is wonderfully machined with very tight tolerances. The blade seats precisely in the head with symmetrical blade exposure. This razor is easy to master because the shave angle is very intuitive. In addition the razor "sings" like no other. This audible feedback is helpful in maintaining a proper shave angle. The Bamboo S1 is a very efficient yet smooth shaver.
The Bamboo handle is threaded to M5x0.8 & also fits the following; Weber, Tradere OC, Goodfella, Edwin Jagger, Muhle, Gillette Old Type and Tech heads.
The Bamboo S1 Slant Solid Bar Safety Razor includes a pack of 5 Astra Blades & free domestic shipping.
Note: Slant baseplates require a slant cap. While you can assemble a razor with a slant base plate and a standard cap, the blade gap will not be even across the length of the blade.
