Wondering if anyone has pulled the trigger on this razor. Sure looks nice.

I bought one to try it out.  Hoping it shaves as nice as it looks.  I'd been waiting for one with an increased blade gap.  Might have it by Monday in time for my sotn.  Will gladly post some thoughts after I give it a run.

Ordered the baseplate as the SB bronze is very much on the mild side. Hope to give it a spin on Monday.

Mine is coming Monday. Was waiting for the more aggressive plate. Already have .95 Ti and SS. Great shavers.

Got my Timeless Bronze today.  Upon opening it I was delighted with how beautiful it was.  Exceptional craftsmanship as usual from Timeless.  I prefer standard bars, but like to mix it up once in awhile.  I'll occasionally use a New Comb, Guerilla and R41.  Used it tonight and my first impressions are positive.  Unlike other Timeless open comb offerings this one actually feels like an open comb.  However, I did notice that with most passes there wasn't a lot of lather left behind.  I did shave with a shallow angle as it was my first use.  It felt very comfortable on my face.  My neck line wasn't too bad.  I usually have a big learning curve with my neck and using a new razor.  In order to get bbs on my neck my last pass atg is from ear to apple and ear to apple.  One thing I was curious about was the comparison to the .95 SB Matt had stated.  I'd say that's a pretty true statement with regards to how it shaved and felt.  I did notice a little more blade feel on my upper lip as well as a few trouble spots.  All in all I had a very comfortable and irritation free shave.

I really would like to give this a try, i see there is a big difference in the blade gap to the SB version. How do they compare?

Received mine yesterday and did a one pass shave last night use a Voskhod blade. Easily equavilent to the .95 Timeless. The fit and finish is perfect. Well worth the money. This morning did my usual two pass shave. Absolutely outstanding. Smooth as silk with no irritation.

Beautiful razors, gents.  Typical Timeless finishing.  Congrats.  I'm surprised the price isn't higher.

Any comparisons between the Paradigm 17-4 or Ti II to the OC Timeless? I have a friend who has both and highly recommends the Timeless for being a bit more effective and a tad less smooth than the Paradigm.

Your friends is spot-on I own also both razor and I feel exactly the same. I'm glad I own both and also the OC bronze is a great value to top it off

I have both the 17-4 and the Bronze OC.  I've used the OC for the past 3 days and after this morning I thought to myself that the Timeless feels a lot like an OC Paradigm 17-4.  Both really smooth.  The angle of the Timeless is intuitive and you can feel a lot less blade when you get it right.

So when did Paradigm make an OC 17-4?

I believe it was a hypothetical situation seeing as there is no open-comb Paradigm 17-4 razor.  Shy

Yeah, I'm saying the Timeless Bronze OC feels like I imagine an OC Paradigm 17-4 would feel. In other words, they feel similar to each other.

Bought the bronze Timeless OC last night, sent it to a good friend in the U.S, he will be sending it over to Cyprus on Saturday. The things I do to save a buck.

Oh man. I really don’t need another razor but it’s just too beautiful to pass up

Thanks for all the responses. I have been hesitant to pull the trigger since I am getting such fabulous shaves from my Variant.

What setting do you use on the variant?
