YAQI Shave Profile

This term is used to describe how your YAQI Razor will shave.

It is a reference to a combination of:

Blade Gap - measured between the Cutting edge of the blade and the razor guard.
Blade Exposure - measured by how far the blade extends past the protective plates.

Blade Gap + Blade Exposure = Shave Profile ~ displayed as a value out of 10
with 1/10 being the Minimum Gap & Blade Exposure
and 10/10 being the Maximum Gap & Blade Exposure.


For a great shave thats close, select a Safety Razor with Minimal Shave Profile ( Min: 1-3/10). Any Safety Razor that has the Mellon Head DOC is a great choice.

Once you have technique a Safety Razor with a Medium Shave Profile ( Medium: 4-6/10) will give you an even closer shave.

The higher Shave Profile heads are rarely sold as a complete razors. But thankfully we have a select few, or you can purchase these heads and fit them onto your existing handles.
