The Weber PH has been my go-to razor for many months.  I find it adequately aggressive and non irritating.  I paired it with a titainium Jurgen Hempel handle.  It just performs well for me.

So I’ve now acquired a Timeless SB .95.  And, its impressed me after only one shave.  As most know, its far heavier.  I beleive the weight contributes to the VERY smooth shave I got.

Will the Timeless take daily driver status from the Weber?  I don’t know yet.  Stay tuned.[Image: YoySR2f.jpg]

Weber was a very smooth shaving razor , a shame they didn’t keep producing them.

Keep us updated.  The Weber PH was my daily driver for 3+ years.  REally enjoyed it.  Curious to see how the Timeless compares in your view.  I have a Blackbird on the way.  I'm assuming its more aggressive, but we'll see.

My bet is that the Timeless takes over your daily driver status

Which version did you order? I received my polished Blackbird on Feb 11, 2016 and out of all of my razors i shave with it the most .. so smooth, effecient and just plain fun to shave with. I have the 101mm handle which i love, i think they discontinued that and just have a shorter handle now. Pretty sure you will love it

Nice, Tom!
I'll be receiving the OC plate (already own SB)... machined finish, as well.

I had them both... My Timeless .95 and .68 SB are long gone. The Weber is one of my regular drivers...

+1, but my Weber is the DLC.

Maybe I’m in the minority’s here but I have shaved with both and I think the timeless is better in regards to the machining, finishing, and shave...

My friend Celestino, my experience says that you will choose to stay with Timeless. For me the oc. 68 is the best choice for a daily drive as a DE

Maybe its time for an NCAA-like playoff where we rank all the razors and pit them off against each other in a vote. Like battle of the bands? Where Led Zeppelin pairs off vs the Rolling Stones,
I sold my zamak Weber as I could not face the day when it "bit the dust," something the Timeless will never do.

Unfortunately, I have already returned my Timeless .68 & .95 and still have my Weber DLCS.  Biggrin

Weber razors were never made of zamak. They were/are stainless steel.

I've tried almost everything as far as razors are concerned both DE and SE and my Webers (DLC, ARC and HP) are all still safely in my den while nearly everything else has been passed along. I do agree that the fit and finish of Weber razors could be improved upon, but for my preferences I don't think you can improve upon the shave they provide, especially when paired with a Wizamet Super Iridium.  Perfect shave every time.

No harm no foul!  The underside of the webers are a little deceiving since they are unpolished, so it does have an odd, not SS look!   Smile
