Wolfman Ti better than the SS?

I’m anti-SS!
Once I tried Ti, I never wanted to go back! I also really like the shape, size, etc. of the Timeless Crown Handle. I have two of them 😂
My next WR2 will be Ti (James is making them again!) and this time I will get the WH7 Ti handle!
Just working on which blade gap to get 🤔
Sorry to disappoint…but good question!

P.S. That being said, I am pleasantly surprised that the WR2 SS head isn’t as heavy 💪 as I thought it would be!

Fumbling about.
I like titanium better than SS, too, at least to the extent I've used it.

Not that SS is bad of course.

Still, how many rabbit holes can one jump into?

(Don't answer that!)

Happy shaves,

And titanium is very nice. To me, it shaves softer than SS.
I have a few titanium Wolfmans. Once I got Ti, I didn’t really want to go back to SS. To me, SS feels sort of cold and harsh by comparison. I have no idea why that is, but it is immediately noticeable. I also prefer the lighter weight of Ti.
Thank you, gentlemen! I've had the same experience with the Ti from other razor artisans. Even though the head geometry is identical, Ti is "softer" or smoother than other metals...and it has nothing to do with the weight. Aluminum is half the weight of titanium, but it lacks this "softness".

I just put my name on the waiting list for a WR2 Ti .95!

Follow-up question: Did you get the matte or regular (textured polished) finish? Thanks!

When mine were made, the only finish available was brushed. It would be the equivalent of the premium brushed/satin SS finish, I believe. The new brushed finish won’t be quite as refined. I’m also on the list and am torn about which to choose.

I use Titanium TiBam handles on both of my SS Wolfman razors. Both SS heads are polished...so smooth on the skin. To me Titanium is more of a weight thing than anything else. But, I cannot speak from experience as I do not own any Titanium razors.
 
I have 2 stainless Wolfman WR1 & 2, and 1 Ti WR1. For me it is just a weight thing. The Ti feels more agile. I think I enjoy the SS WR1 the best.

What's the price of a Ti WR2? Last time I checked the site I didn't see titanium as an option.
