What a great series of reviews on the Konsul, thank you!I didn't do the S1, but the S2 showed up in at least one of the earlier versions of the Tilted Picnic.
For its innovative design the ATT S-series is a very nice slant. Possibly a bit less "slanty" than some, but nonetheless a slant. Blade insertion is easy, and the blade is held in exactly the right position every time. In fact, adjusting it is impossible. The OC S2 combines that design with a nice mild shave. It's my grail razor and the standard against which I judge every other razor I've tried. So much so, in fact, that it's also my bailout razor for those times when the shave is going pear-shaped.
The ATT S2 has become my favorite modern slant razor (with the RazorockGerman 37 being at sight).
Both are capable to give me satisfying shaves.
Now the general consensus on the Konsul seems to be it shows a rather mild blade feel (at least if compared to the Rex Ambassador, which I have never shaved with; same goes for the Wunderbar).
Which of the Konsul's setting reminds you of the blade feel you get with either the S2 or the German 37?
I'm aware the S2 is an OC razor (and nothing can beat first hand experience when it comes to evaluating razors), however, I just seek to find out if the Konsul is too "mild" for my liking on lower settings (say 4.5 to 2) or not.
I don't want to end up with an adjustable I don't adjust
Any input is highly appreciated
Have a great weekend.
