OK, here it goes. Current project is a fully machined aluminum ATT razor. Made in the USA of course and I believe it is the only one. The photo below shows the new "Atlas" aluminum handle in a 3.5" length. This is the same length as the Kronos. I used it this morning and it felt very nice. The razor will be machined from "aircraft grade" aluminum. Standard AL is 6061 however, in order to produce a more durable razor I decided to use 7075 AL (aircraft grade) for this project. The handle below was fully machined and tumbled for a nice drippy feel and a nice texture. It has not been anodized yet, so no color or sheen. I am also looking at producing this in a men and ladies version (different color and aggression levels for each). My goal is to have these available in about two months or less with the price at about half of the cost of our stainless line. The head is AL as well (Please disregard the paint). Here is a link to the "Shaving Evangelist" Chris Bailey who gave an review on two of my prototypes earlier.
. Remember, this is still a work in progress.

Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Yes, Yes, Yes.

I am glad to hear you used a "top shelf" variant of aluminum.  Looks great and I appreciate the details.

I believe that you need to be a member of, and logged in to, the Badger & Blade forum in order to see Stan's photo. (I'm not a member of B & B, so I can't see the photo either.)

Nope.  I'm logged in and can't see it either.

Would you mind posting your pics here as well instead of just hot-linking to another site? 

Some of us do not want to or cannot log in to B&B to view them. 

I requested this in another one of your threads but it was ignored.

Not ignored just busy. I usually hit the forums every few days. I was not aware that copying from one site to another would be a problem. Next time I will pull photos while logged on here. Hopefully that will solve the issue. Below are the photos for your viewing pleasure.

I'm not a big fan of the light weight razors, I find that I apply pressure to compensate

Stan, have you gotten a weight comparison to the comparable stainless version yet?  I am assuming it would be about a third to half of the stainless ones?

Wow - exciting news!

I have to state this - ATT razors never leave my shave nook! Truly a quality made product that I will support and enjoy 100%

Exciting! My wife has been clamoring for a new DE razor as she is getting tired of her Lady Gillette. I'd be interested in the different color options!

Not necessarily a bad thing. IF and I stress, "if" a razor is mild enough, it allows one to do the intuitive thing... Apply pressure. That's why I'm so taken with my Feather AS-D2. Pressure doesn't produce the nicks, for me, that most other razors do and if Stan's new aluminum razor is mild enough to allow pressure without dire consequences, it'll appeal to a legion of cart users out there that we would love to convert.
