Razors with blade feel similar to a Timeless SB .95?

You have some great razors in your den. If you want to stay with new razors, the Blackland ERA Level 4 SB may fit your needs.

If you want to take a walk on the vintage side, I'm Gillette a big Gillette Tech fan. The Post-War Fat Handle Tech offers excellent blade support (no blade 'chatter'), minimal blade feel, highly nimble & maneuverable, and, when used steep with minimal & appropriate pressure, medium+ efficient, highly smooth and medium+ effective.

Also vintage, the Gillette Goodwill razors are magic, but there is more blade feel.

Hope this helps. :)
I might have to get me one of those Gillette Techs as it does look pretty nice for a vintage razor!
 
have already tried the Karve CB.. not really a big fan.
Agreed about the Karve CB! Also agree on the Game Changer (have 3 versions)

The smoothest razors I have every used with little blade play and are still effective.
-PAA Meta-4 hands down!
-Homelike Start
-Razorock BBS OC (assuming the others are as well)
-Rotbart Mond-Extra
 

Chan Eil Whiskers

Fumbling about.
The ATT CM1 will have you examining it to see if it's somehow cutting whiskers without a blade. I'd say it feels considerably more smooth and mild than the Timeless 95. (Yes, I have used the 95 OC a good bit and like it.)

Mine's pictured on an aftermarket handle.

The newer SSMR should be very similar in feel. Although I've not used it, I've used the CR1. The SSMR should be half way between the CM1 and the CR1.

Happy shaves,

Jim
 
I always sound like a broken record here. If I were you, I'd look into the Blackland Vector or the Executive Shaving Co/Alpha Shaving Claymore Evolution. I love my Claymore Evo.... and I love the whole Artist Club blade strategy... you want to change the efficiency? just pick one of 9 blade choices.... pretty simple. Blackland has the Stainless Steel models back in stock at the moment.
 
Timeless SS share the same vice-like blade clamping & blade curvature with the RR BBS series of razors ( made of 316L ss ) .There are multiple plates to choose from .


I think the razorock 316L SS BBS would be a great choice. You can hardly feel the blade on that razor IMO.
