I picked up two Timeless razors last week and wow, what amazing instruments!

I wear a beard and shave my head, and have found it challenging nd a DE razor which handled my head efficiently, without leaving weepers on the crown and more extreme angles. Until the Timeless, a Pils 101NE has had the best balance, but the handle has always been too smooth and skinny to feel 100% comfortable while shaving in the shower.

My go to razor has been an ATT M1 with a Stork Sargent titanium handle, a close second is the Charcoal Goods Level 1 close comb.

Enter the Timeless

I bounced endlessly between open and closed comb, smooth and scalloped heads and the .68 and .95 gaps and ultimately went with a .95 smooth bar and smooth cap set. The first shave, with TOBS Coconut was amazing, easily one of the best shaves I've ever had. Zero weepers and a DFS across my entire head in just two passes. I cannot go ATG on my head, so a DFS is nirvana for me.

The .95 is super efficient, but also delightfully smooth and safe, I would need to work at cutting myself with this setup.

I loved the setup so much I immediately ordered the open comb, scalloped head setup. Shaving with the close comb my be a touch smoother, but both are superb.

After a little mod made to the razor stand with Plasti Dip, I have no worries about keeping Timeless polish job pristine

Great to read!
Mine was delivered this afternoon, a .95 scalloped base/cap, and I'm really looking forward to using it tonight.

Like many, I have both .68 and .95 solid bars in smooth and scalloped and they are solid members of my rotation.  Might need to add the open combs as well - and soon!  Congrats and enjoy.

Billy, have you felt/noticed a difference in performance/sensation when using the two different caps, or is that just aesthetic?

Congratulations. Thumbsup

I'm pretty new to Timeless, also opting for the 0.95, in both scalloped and OC and with scalloped head. Never before have I used a razor that's so intuitive, smooth and "safe". Enjoy.

Matt, i haven't detected much difference in the quality of shave though the scalloped cap gives you a different feel (like a gentle plow LOL) on each stroke, though it's very subtle, and the smooth cap is much more direct.  The design of the scalloped is so cool, it can sit on the shelf and I'd still be happy (but it won't).  Biggrin

p.s. Love the rose handle!

Thank you! I agree the scalloped cap is very neat.

Hi Pepe, I'm using an Astra SP and plan to try a Feather over the weekend, that will give me time to staunch any bleeding!
