Be aware that there are 2 very different R41 razors, the 2011 and 2013 models. The 2011 model has significantly more blade exposure.

I've been wet shaving for years and years and have mostly been a face latherer. Lately I've been bowl lathering though, and I've been testing out various lather bowls. Good Lord, the Timeless Razor Blue Shaving Bowl is such an amazing piece of kit, and only $12. It gives me epic lathers in...
I'm an AS newbie. I only started wearing it very recently and have only tried Clubman Bay Rum and Nivea's balm. I've been wetshaving for years though.

Upon closer inspection, it appears that non-Windsor razors from Above the Tie have traditional heads with blade overhang. Just what I'm looking for. Anyone looking to purchase should confirm with ATT though.

Manufacturers I know of: Above the Tie, Timeless, Blackland, RazoRock.
Can't find anything with blade...
