And they’re out of Kingsport, TennesseeFrom where they ship out of it looks like they were based out of Kingsport, Tennessee. Which oddly enough is just south of where my parents grew up
I really like all their aluminum plates. And yes it looks very cool!I like the Windsor line of stainless razors, but took a stab at their aluminum Windsor with ALMR and ALRH plates. Just received the razor and started with the MR plate.
The ALMR shaves closer than the SSMR by a good bit. I was very surprised and wasn’t expecting to notice much difference. Pleasant surprise for sure.
Tomorrow I will try the ALRH plate. The SSRH is one of my all time favorites so curious if the ALRH acts like the ALMR and will be more efficient than the stainless counter part. Excited to find out.
Also like the red and blue color baseplates with the black handle and cap.
Yes, I noticed the aluminum cap exposes more of the blade compared to the stainless cap after a quick look. I guess that’s why the ALMR plate performed a bit better than the SSMR.I really like all their aluminum plates. And yes it looks very cool!
I used to use them with a stainless bamboo handle and finally got the aluminum calypso handle during the sale.
And also added a couple of more plates! It feels very balanced with the aluminum handle and of course much lighter.
An excellent travel razor!
The ALRH is as you know is the equivalent to the SSRH plate. But one thing you'll find is more blade feel in the
aluminum version if you are using the aluminum cap. It's 2mm blade exposure vs. 1mm with the stainless Windsor cap.
I love both!
@Old Hippie , sorry for the belated question. I just received an S2 base plate. It was on closeout for $10 and I couldn't resist. The first thing I noticed, however, was how sharp the edges of the teeth are. Was your this way and if so, did you soften them a bit? I'm pretty sure mine would leave tracks in my skin if I used it in its current condition...I believe an ATT razor was my first higher-end purchase. That would have been a combo of the SE1/SE2. Ultimately I traded the SE1 for an S2, which was a great deal. My three favourite ATT razors are the G1, S2 and X1. I will be wistful that a G2 and an X2 will never come to pass, but grateful for the ones I have.

Thx. Mine looks a bit unfinished. I ended up rounding the tips of the teeth ever so slightly. Just enough so it doesn’t leave “rake” marks on my face. I didn’t round anything in between the teeth, only the very ends.Mine's from when they still dated their production. It's from 2014, so practically vintage.
The edges between the teeth are square, while the ends of the teeth are rounded. Not to say it's the same with yours, but I've never had problems with mine. I tend to use a very light touch with most of my razors, which is why I also tend to prefer razors with a bit of mass to them.
Kim, the "Closeout" stuff was what they used to have in the "scratch & dent" section before they announced that they were gonna close. I believe you bought that S2 plate from that section, correct?Thx. Mine looks a bit unfinished. I ended up rounding the tips of the teeth ever so slightly.

Cool!It was from their "closeout" sale... it was easy to fix. I looked at some S2 posts here and I could see... the edges of the teeth were slightly rounded. I used fine sandpaper and a metal clip board.... felt the ends with my fingers and ran the base over my face.... no longer sharp enough to cut.
