Out of about 16 razors now, all but 5 are 3-piece. While most razors shave differently from each other depending on about a zillion things, whatever this blade chatter is that a few people seem to experience or worry about, my 5 TTO razors seem to hold the blades just fine whether SS, Aristocrat, 195, or Slim. I don't experience this phenomena the way it's been talked about in this thread. There are likely other reasons you're not as comfortable with your TTO razors but life's too short to worry about crap like that. A lot more can go wrong with TTO and adjustable razors. Ditch them and stick to what works well for you or put them on a shelf just to have as decor (yeah, I do that). I mostly shave with my three piece razors because I like the simplicity of the design and how they work for me. Good luck.I'm the learning noob here on B&B. A lot of what I've picked up and repeated, is stuff I've read on here on B&B. Hence, I repeated the term 'blade chatter' which I've read others talk about on B&B thinking it was a commonly experienced and understood phenomena. Before a couple months ago, I had never even heard of blade chatter, let alone know what it means. If I'm using the term incorrectly, or using the wrong term, then just set me straight.
I feel like the child repeating words I hear my parents say, but I have no idea what they mean.
So, to try and explain purely from my perspective, it just seems like my TTO / adjustable razors don't feel as comfortable as my 2/3 piece razors. Exactly why that is, I don't know, I'm simply speculating and trying to put into understandable words what I *think* might be going on, but I may be out in left field. Whether it's blade movement, flexing, wobbling or whatever you want to call it, I was guessing that may somehow be a contributing factor.
Maybe it's all in my head and I just need to understand that because they are somewhat differently designed tools, that I just need to learn how to use them differently and that would solve the problem. Or, maybe I just need to not worry about it and shave with my 3 piece razors because those are the ones that seem to fit my style the best and I'm more comfortable with them.
