Cx-316L Base plate
Choose from 1 of 3 available base plates. Based on customer feedback, we are excited to now offer some new options to customize your shave. We offer 3 options of base plates for you to choose from based on your shaving preference.
- Original Base Plate = .68 mm blade gap (Medium/Aggressive)
+ Base Plate = .88mm blade gap
++ Base Plate = 1.08mm blade gap
- ~12.5 grams total weight
- All base plates have positive blade exposure
- High Polish Finish - Some machine marks are visible. Some scratches also exist. These can be seen on critical dimensions and when magnified.
Some notes to help you pick:
Original Base Plate - This is our current design configuration. It’s still my personal favorite and has a .68mm with positive blade exposure. This design offers a lot of user control with positive blade exposure. For a milder shave, you can change the angle or “ride the cap” for sensitive parts like the neck. For other areas, you can still have a good amount of efficiency.
+ Base Plate - We reduced the blade exposure and increased the gap to .88mm. This is a nice option if you only shave every 2-3 days, as the larger gap allows for this. Early feedback has been positive for those that prefer less blade exposure, but enjoy the efficiency of a larger gap.
++ Base Plate - This one is for those who like a very efficient option. This plate is still with positive blade exposure, but has less exposure than the + Base Plate. This razor has a larger 1.08mm gap. If you have thick hair and shave every 4-5 days or just like an efficient razor, this would be the one.
