Found a great deal on Ebay for a new stainless steel Above the Tie closed comb with R1/H1 plate(s) and Kronos handle.  I've been thinking about purchasing this razor for some time but since I own so many other wonderful DE razors, I've been holding off on another purchase.....well....all I can say is WOW....for my first shave I decided to try the R1 plate along with an Astra SP blade (vs H1 and Feather)....the reviews I've read about this razor and the R1 plate is that it's considered by many to be somewhat mild....I'd say it's between somewhat mild and somewhat aggressive....I was a bit concerned about the Kronos handle and thought I might replace or also purchase an Atlas handle since I prefer a shorter handle----again WOW....this combo feels very well balanced in the hand and you definitely receive wonderful feedback from the razor as it glides over your face. I have a feeling it's going to be getting a pretty good workout in the days and months ahead.

Enjoy! My favorite razor by far is the S2. Can't decide between the atlas and the kronos though; both are great.

I love the S2. I use it with a Jurgen Hempel handle and usually and Astra blade. Great combination and one of my favorites!
