Thats interesting ,I find I tend to use quite a shallow angle with the R1 I couldn't get a steep angle to work for me, maybe I should retry using a steep angleI prefer a steep angle shave with an Atlas R2 / R1. To me it is as smooth as my H2 / H1 steep angle.
Both need a consistent light touch - if I forget momentarily I can get a nick.
This is interesting, if anyone has different att baseplates and a camera I would love to see a visual comparisonAlso something I noticed was about how the razors are made. For the different plates I assumed the gap was controlled by raising and lowering the square portion of the base plate. In actuality the comb is milled lower to open the blade gap. I'm sure there's a reason for one over the other (most likely ease of manufacturing since it shouldn't effect the shave at all other than a thinner bar) but just an interesting observation I saw.
I should have taken a picture. I got the M1, R1 and H1 but just sent the M1 back for an R2. I know others have a set so hopefully they can post a pic.This is interesting, if anyone has different att baseplates and a camera I would love to see a visual comparison
Q: There is interest among shavers about whether the slant will have multiple base plates to offer different degrees of aggressiveness. Do you have plans in this area?
A: Well cross that bridge when we come to it. Ill be interested to see the response to the first model before deciding on additional base plates.
If your mustache was only one week old, give it time. Time to grow, and time for you to get used to it. I've had mine since starting to grow it on 1/1/72, and it's as if it were a part of me.... It was strange when the hair on my upper lip vibrated as I exhaled. I'm not cut out for facial hair.
I have very sparse facial hair. It would never fill in; always more skin than hair would show. I did it in my 20s and after 6 months, I gave up for good.If your mustache was only one week old, give it time. Time to grow, and time for you to get used to it.
