There was a theory once that the Chinese invented noodles, and they were introduced to Italy via Marco Polo. Then Italian references to noodles were found that predated contact with China. Turns out both cultures had developed noodles independently.
Did something similar happen with a certain futuristic-looking adjustable razor design? Was it independently developed by German engineers and Chinese engineers? No. Once the German design's patents expired, Chinese companies like QShave and Ming Shi began producing razors that practically duplicate the original. This is one of those... let's call it an homage, shall we?
It's a design that really shaves well, and is perfect for someone who wants something that gets even more aggressive than a Gillette adjustable. But QShave has made two key improvements: for one, this one is black. Dark as night, it is the razor Batman and Darth Vader would use. I happen to think it looks way better in black than in a shiny or matte metal finish.
QShave's other advantage is price. The German original retails for $60+, but we sell this QShave-- in black, and including a matching stand-- for only $18.
