Here is something new from the Eckard production line (hint to the maker) in that it is smaller than his usual builds. Nimble and fierce this one, just like a Jack Russel finding a snake crossing its path. The main attribute of this razor is definitely its shorter blade, some guys find shorter blades more practical to shave with, and they are also easier to strop than larger razors. Although nimble and small the razor's design still allows for very comfortable grip even for larger hands, it has a comfortable grip with index finger in front of the pivot point and two resting on the ample space the tang provides at the tail end of the razor.  

The size is of this razor 6/8" with a length of 60mm. It has Padauk wood scales with a red

Micarta inlay and Padauk wedge. The blade is made from 52100 steel with a 61 hardness and weighs a wee 38 grams.

The blade has been "wet tested" and is shave ready, strop on leather before every shave.

Smaller blade for a smaller face

This razor is smaller than I realised from the photos, and I was initially a bit apprehensive because of that.
It did make me realise that Jaco has better photography skills that I gave him credit for ;-)
Now that I've had a chance to shave with my new Eckard razor, I love it.
The quality of the build is brilliant; I won't need another razor in my life.
I'm a small guy with a small face, and my previous bigger and heavier razor, was similar to those clips you see of a truck driving along a single lane dirt road up the side a mountain.
I now have a rally car racing through country lanes with precision and speed.
I can now actually see the tricky corners around my ears with the smaller blade and I can use the full length of the blade which I like.
Overall brilliant service from Jaco as always, and the razor is fantastic. For a smaller face, I highly recommend.
