I know that I am in the minority for this preference, but I really like the size and maneuverability of my 80mm WRH2.
Do you remember when you got on the wait list?My waitlist-up email for the WR2 just came. I am sticking with what @Hannah's Dad had suggested when I waitlisted. i.e the WR2 1.25. I love my Blackbird and my Timeless 0.95 Scalloped (SB) but would prefer something which was slightly smoother then the Bird. Only thing I am having second thoughts about is if the 1.35 may be a better choice. I am shaving no more than twice a week anymore and feel maybe the 1.35 is better.
Nice photo Jim. But what you're showing is "blade reveal," not "blade exposure." REFERENCEI ordered the 1.05mm gap. I have attempted to take a photo of it. Unfortunately, I do not have a microlens. Perhaps this can give you an idea of what the blade exposure is like. As you can see the mirror finish on the head acts just like a mirror and reflects everything!

You won’t be upset with the gap. I have a 1.55 and shave every other day. It took a while to really feel comfortable with it and every now and then it still bites me but it’s still very smooth and will cut through any amount of growth I foresee me needing it for. Great choice.Ended up going with the 1.35 just because my frequency in shaving has gone down. Ha ha.
