Each razor is individually numbered (001 to 100) and each piece is fully machined from solid brass. This is sure to become a collector's item. Includes the Atlas handle, all three base plates and an ink well stand.

Grab a piece of ATT history today. Supplies are extremely limited.

This is one of those times I'm quite happy to not like DEs. Otherwise this would be quite tempting.

I love my set.  It is quite unique sitting in my den.  I'm interested in how long it will take to completely transform to the dark brown color.

The word stunning is sometimes overused when it comes to shaving gear, but this clearly qualifies for that title.  This is an heirloom piece.

Wait a few years and I'm sure they will materialise.. I love the look of old bronze and brass.

Beautiful set, sadly out of my price range. Still, I enjoy looking at it Biggrin

Is the bronze set considered more water resistant than the stainless set that is also on offer? I'm not quite sure about what the properties of bronze are in terms of shaving products.

Bronze is an alloy based on copper initially found mixed with natural deposits of Arsenic. It was improved with the introduction of Tin from Cornwall and helped create
trade routes as far as Persia. Iron largely replaced it because of easier access and ease of sharpening that eventually led to steel. Bronze will initially oxidize that thin brown layer that protects the inner metal. Water has NO effect on bronze, which is why ship's screws and other fittings  are still largely made of it. There is a chemical reaction that can initiate chemical disintegration called 'Bronze Rot'  but takes some doing.

Thanks for the info kav! This was a very informative post. Can any sort of shaving products (cream/soap, pre-shave, etc.) cause Bronze Rot or is a bronze razor essentially impervious to anything I could reasonably do to it (assuming I don't conduct weird experiments or something)?
