The prototype of the Paradigm Stainless Steel razor is on its way to me and I hope to receive it tomorrow (it was scheduled to arrive today but...you know how that goes). According to Andy, this model will be as efficient as the Titanium model but, it will be smoother with less blade feel. I can hardly wait to run it through its paces!

Can't wait to hear back from about how it shaves

Have you ever noticed that the USPS is more likely to lose and/or delay a package that you are highly anticipating? <sigh>

The prototype arrived late this morning and I plan on taking it for a spin this evening. Here are a few quick and dirty pictures. My first impressions are very positive. The machining is excellent and it feels great in the hand. Weighing in at a modest 100g, it looks like it will be nimble and easy to handle.

Oh man...just take my money! I love my Titanium paradigm. If this is anything like that it will be a winner. Any idea when it will be available?

I'm still crunching the numbers. I should know more in about a week.

They should be available in 2 to 3 weeks.

The first shave with the razor was great. I would say the aggression level is moderate -definitely efficient without biting or being harsh. I used a Gillette Yellow and will experiment with a few other blades.

How does it compare to the Titanium paradigm

I am going to use it a few more times before making a comparison. It is definitely a little more compact (10mm shorter handle and 30g heavier overall) which gives it a different balance.

That looks like a Stork Consul handle.

They both have kind of a cross hatch pattern. Other than that...I don't see a huge resemblance. Here is another shot of the Paradigm.

Handle reminds me of the vintage French Gardette razor.
