Ok, so I need to issue the disclaimer of YMMV because it’s your face and your money and these things aren’t cheap lol!Hey there,
My name came up on the Wolfman list. So, I was just about to pull the trigger on a SS WR2-SB 1.25 gap with a titanium WRH2 handle. I briefly owned a Timeless Ti .95 DC (which gave me a great shave) but I got rid of it because I had been wanting a Wolfman. Since you have both, I was wondering if you could give me some insight between the two. Is the WR2 1.25 close to the feel and efficiency of the Timeless? Do you feel the Wolfman is worth ponying up the extra cash for? Or do you find the Timeless just as sweet. I am on the fence whether to go for the Wolfman (worried about picking the right gap and how it will work for me) or just get the Timeless again since I know it is a sweet shaver and works great for me. Thank you.
From an efficiency standpoint, I consistently get a closer shave from my Timeless Ti .95 OC than I do from my WR 1.25 SB. Note that I said consistently, not constantly, because on occasion, I get just as close a shave from the Wolf, but not consistently. This might boil down to shaving angle. The Timeless works well with a neutral shave angle, which is quite natural for me. The Wolf shaves best with a steep angle, which I find awkward (though many prefer). Both are very smooth razors, especially for the high blade gaps, but I find the Timeless to be a tad smoother. Now I do not have a Titanium WR2. Mine is stainless steel razor with a solid 90 mm handle. So, compared to the Timeless it’s very heavy. I prefer the lighter, effortlessly maneuverable titanium. Undoubtedly that factor would be negated for me if I bought a titanium Wolfman (at a hefty price). So I prefer my Timeless. However, I do love my Wolfman. It’s the most beautiful razor I own. The other consideration is the ease of selling a Wolfman for 100% of your cost if you decide the brand or the gap are not for you. Of course Timeless does make purchasing quick and easy, with a return policy.
I hope that helps!
