I received my new Above the Tie X1 Slant razor and used it for the first time this morning. Before using the razor, I was a bit intimidated by the width of the head and wasn't sure if I'd like it. I've used an ATT 2013 R plate original design for ten years and knew I liked that configuration. However, as soon as I started shaving, my fears were immediately put to rest! The shave was efficient and close, and dare I say, more forgiving than my older razor. Since this was just the first shave, I'll hold off on final passing judgment, but all in all, I was extremely impressed! Every other part of my shave was status quo. My MWF lather was a bit weak as I am using up the remnants of a puck and am down to just a ring at the bottom of the ceramic bowl. The width of the razor head made quick work of my two-day-old beard, and I achieved a smooth chin without any knicks. I am interested to see how many shaves I get from the Feather Pro blade. My old ATT razor has a 3" Atlas handle, and I opted for the 3.5" Calypso handle for the new razor. I enjoy the balance and maneuverability of the Atlas handle on the DE razor, but the slightly longer Calypso creates a similar feel in the wider SE head of the X1. Happy and impressed! I should add that coming from an existing ATT razor, there was almost zero adjustments in getting used to the razor. I intuitively was shaving as if this was my old DE razor.
