How's the knurling/grip on the Plaid handle?  I'm curious because I have and love the grip on the Pineapple and I'm wondering how they compare.

Wet hands=no problem. Soapy hands=a bit slick.

Well I have never used the pineapple but I can tell you the grip is very good. One might not think so to look at it, as the knurling is not very deep but I am able to get a good grip even with wet hands.

Okay, thanks for your view.

Exactly what I thought. Grooves don't look deep, but I wouldn't bet against Timeless getting this right.

Agree, the cut isn't terribly deep, nor does it have grippy edges. That said, I haven't had an issue yet.

My timing is phenomenal, I buy the SS and now will absolutely buy the Ti and probably want to flip the SS.

You may want to wait until you get some feedback on the Ti before selling the SS. I know I'm getting one for sure but My 2 SS's I have are keepers but I'm a little bit of a hoarder when it comes to my artisan razors. Now if I don't like something like my old Tradere which I never connected with ill absolutely sell it. Timeless is on a roll right now and if they get behind in production like some others you may see a waiting list happen.

Just my 2 cents!

I tried all heads and most handles from Timeless. My preference goes for the SB .95 gap with knurled handle.
A wonderful razor in my honest opinion. YMMV. Since I discovered timeless I stopped using any of my other DE's and I owned many. In my tastes it even bests the BBS-1.

The .95 might seem an important gap at first but once you use it it is smooth and very very efficient. A beautiful shaver.

My favorite is the .95 OC. I traded the .68 SB for a .95 SB, and then bought a .68 OC from a friend. The .68 OC works way better for me than the .68 SB did. The jury is still out on the .95 SB. I need to shave with it some more before I decide whether it is a keeper. It is odd, but as I've mentioned in the past, I prefer Timeless and Blackbird in OC, and Tradere and Wolfman in SB. Different strokes for different folks.

I am wanting to swap my .68 SB for the .68 OC as well. I did the same with my .95 SB. Glad I did because the .95 OC gives me an extremely nice shave.

Sounds like we are all on the same page as far as liking an OC plate on our Timeless razors. My first Timeless I ordered had the scalloped head in a .95 gap and for some reason I wasn't connecting to it so I sent it back and got a .68 OC cause I wasn't sure if the .95 would be more aggressive than a R41.  After shaving with the .68 which I really liked a lot , I was still wondering what the .95 OC would be like so I called Matt and asked if he could do a custom baseplate for me with a .95 OC on one side and a .95 straight bar on the other figuring if the OC side is to aggressive then I've got the SB side to go to. Well two weeks later it showed up at my door and has become the number one razor in my den. It's a great shaver that consistently provides me with a smooth, irritation free 12 + hr long lasting BBS shave, compared to about a 6 to 8 hr BBS shave with the .68. The challenge will now come tomorrow as I just got my Level 3 OC Charcoal Goods from Brian yesterday in the mail . I'm just waiting for a little more growth to take it on it's maiden voyage and compare it to the Timeless .95 so it should be an interesting comparison.
