This is my 3 rd purchase of an Above The Tie razor, the other 2 being a R1 as well as another H1 to compliment the one I just purchased. I also own 2 Muhle R 41 razors and rate the H1 just beneath it in aggressiveness with the R1 as a much more milder forgiving instrument. I will say that all of these are great razors and once comfortable with daily use
they will be amongst your favorites.
Pros: Flawless manufacturing great shaves made in the USA
I love this razor, it shaves great in fact I have sold off many of my razors and use the H1 exclusivity I have also pre ordered the M & R head to complete the series. I see the new base plates as a system not just a razor. The best part of all this quality is its made in the USA! Who said America does not make good things anymore? Buy an Above The Tie razor and then tell me that...
I used it for one week. My impressions are that for a heavy aggressive razor it yeilds BBS and no irritation. One of the best aggressive razors i have ever tried. I have a Stahly, R41/2010 and Barbasol which are aggressive and i can easily say its in the same class. I never got any major nicks or cuts and the learning curve is easy. Even a newbie can use this beast and be safe. I do a 2 pass shave everyday and i can easily use this razor on a daily basis. ( unlike the R41 or Barbasol) The Titan is a instant classic in my view.
