Excited to try these out, they look beautiful.

Anyone use these yet? I'm sure there are more SS SE-1 users than Copper Windsor users, thus far.

How do you like them?

Glad they have a 30-day policy, just in case though!!

I have been wanting the ATT SE1 for a while. I love my Cobra Classic and wonder how they compare.

Is the SE1 available as a Windsor edition?  I love that razor and would buy the upgrade.

That Windsor copper is a beautiful razor. I am so tempted. And the SE1 is my go-to razor.

IMO the SE1 is not as efficient as the Cobra. I ended up selling my SE1, it was a nice razor and smooth but not in the same league as the Cobra I believe only the Rx shaves as close

Have you tried the SE2? The RX and SE2 are my two favorite AC-blade razors, but I've not tried an SE1. When the SE1 was released, the anecdotal reporting was that it was a bit mild, so I waited for the SE2, which, with a Feather Pro Super, is one of my best shaves.

I have the copper Windsor and think it is excellent.  The head is larger to cover the ends of the blade but the shave is a notch above the standard ATT razors (BTW, I have and really like the bronze set).  The polished copper is beautiful and overall I rank it up there with my best DE razors.  The ATT SE1 is also very nice.  It seems to be a touch milder than the RX and King Cobra.  I find it to be a little easier to use due to its smaller size (compared to the RX and Cobra).  Overall, I find it comparable to The General that I have.
I think you should enjoy both razors.

I wish the copper Windsor was available with the shorter 3" handle.

The R plate.
Figured start in the middle and adjust as necessary, if necessary.

If either of these shaves anything like Rockwell 6s on plate 3, I'll be ecstatic. (What a dream/surprise that was the other day.)

The SE-1 my go to razor, and I only ever stray away from it if for some reason I just want to use one of my DE's since I reach pass them every morning to get to my SE-1. I have only tried the feather AC blades (pro-guard and professional), I look forward to trying out others in the near future. There is just something about the SE-1 I really enjoy. I originally had the kronos handle and I just prefer the atlas look and size so I traded for one and couldn't be happier. I get such good shaves, and the AC blades have no problem getting those pesky spots that I usually have to touch up with a DE. I get a 2 pass DFS with light touch ups (No fault of the razor, I have a few spots where the whiskers grow in a direction where my WTG + AcrossTG strokes just don't fully take care of them). I think once you find your preferred blade you will be a SE / AC convert or at least have it in constant rotation.

I would love to see an SE-x in copper!

Thanks. I will keep my I open for one, I’ll check the returns on ATT

Perhaps the SE2 is the way to go for me as well
Thank you.

I have the Calypso with R and H plates but use the H plate almost 100% of the time. I absolutely love the shave with the H plate and was about to place an order for the copper Windsor. Thanks to a wonderful member of this community, he offered to let me try his Windsor H first. For me, I find the shave to be completely different. I get zero audible feedback with the Windsor and the shave feels very mild compared to the standard H plate. In fact, after my first pass with the grain with the Windsor H I realized there was some facial hair that had been left that would have been gone with the standard H plate. For the second pass with the grain, I switched to the Calypso H and immediately heard the audible feedback and got a much better pass.

Although very beautiful, I will not be buying the Windsor due to the mild feel. I love the standard H plate and get very smooth/close shaves with it but I am sure this is a YMMV thing.
