I just ordered another run of 50 Titanium II razors.  These things take time so, please be patient. The earliest that we will receive them will be late March.

The Ti II has been re-designed to have the 17-4 shaving characteristics. The original 17-4 used a heat treated 17-4 SS that is very hard by nature and also very hard on the machinery forming it into a razor.  I doubt we will ever see  a second batch of 17-4's again. From some comparisons I have seen, people prefer the SS to the Ti II.

This makes no sense as nobody has used the Ti II yet -they did not even ship until yesterday evening. Huh

No. It is a possibility for the future but, production ended up being a lot more expensive than originally expected. If there is another run of 17-4 razors, they will have to be priced considerably higher. The 17-4 steel is much harder to work with than the 300 series of steel.

yes, you are right Phil,
I have misunderstood a thread  and posted a comparison between the two.  I'm sure the Ti II will be a hit as the 17-4 has been.

@kyproset Where have you read a comparison between Ti II and 17-4 SS? I think that it's impossible.

Sorry I apologize, it was a mistake. I was reading comparisons on another razor and I got confused. The comparisons though will be coming soon from people who have both.

I have the Origial Titanium and the 17-4 The Titanium has much more Blade feel when shaving and is very efficient 2 pass WTG/CTG BBS. The 17-4 has very little Blade feel and is extremely smooth but delivers very good efficiency 3 pass BBS

Please, refresh my memory...

Me too, on top of the world. I just coupled the head with an MR15 handle and it looks perfect.

Same here also.
First shave with the titanium 17-04 and I am very happy. It's  a little softer? than the steel version ..but still a excellent razor for my beard and skin type

Two quick and dirty side by sides.

Visually the TI is slightly less bright (to be expected for TI) than the SS but otherwise very similar in appearance. The handle design is a little sharper in person and in the attached pictures than it looked in other pictures, which I certainly like.

Have to wait until tomorrow to see how it shaves.
