This is one of the most beautiful razors which are into production these days with no shadow of a doubt.

And if we add the M1 closed comb head , we are talking about a masterpiece for everyday shavers who doesn't have an extra coarse beard and want to enjoy pleasant BBS shaves.

Let me tell you that everything is elegant about this razor , even the box that comes in :

Of course this is a stainless steel razor , made in USA , and with excellent detail and finish.Both the closed comb head and the Atlas handle matches perfectly in style.

The Atlas handle is 80 mm long and this razor has a total weight of 92 grams.

The Barberpole handle knurling is simply eye candy and I enjoy how easy is to hold.It also feels sturdy , really sturdy.You know you have an instrument is going to last you for years and years.

I do have a medium beard and extra dry skin.I was concerned when I was thinking about the 0.25 mm gap that the closed comb head has.I thought it was going to be extra mild , like a Gillette Super Speed blue tip or similar.
Well , I was wrong.I can use this razor with a Astra Blue or Green and any of the Gillette DE blades , and not only I can enjoy a great shave in 3 razor passes (sometimes I just only need two) but my skin is very safe.I do truly appreciate that.

The razor is extra well balance , but if you have big hands , I don't know if this handle is for you.

No weird cutting angle , like I have experienced with some other razors : this closed comb head shows you exactly the right angle to cut and , while being a smooth shaver , you can notice how it cut the hairs of your beard making some "noise".

It's price is 185 dollars , but you can buy every single of this 3 piece razor by itself : handle , base plate and cup.

If you are looking for an every day razor , elegant and stylish like an old Gillette Aristocrat , and you have a medium beard , this razor would satisfied you in every single aspect.
One again , I find it to be the most beautiful one of all the current razors currently made.And that says a lot.

Very pleased with this razor and I would totally recommend it.
