I am from UK and am intrigued by the Timeless razor. This seems quality and gives a wonderful shave. Currently I use Edwin J . Any thoughts as yo this razor being worth the money?  Actually, I cannot find any retailers for this, certainly in the UK.

I have been contemplating the Timeless Titanium.  Looking for medium aggressive razor and the .95 gets favorable recommendations.

I have the titanium Timeless with the scalloped base plate in 0.95 and scalloped cap. It's very efficient on my grey-peppered, tough beard, though I've never had a cut in using it. Highly recommended.

My favorites are the polished stainless steel .68 straight bar with smooth cap and the titanium .95 straight bar with smooth cap. If I could only choose one, it'd be the titanium razor. You can't go wrong with either. They are the best of the best double edge razors that I have tried.

I have the .95 in Titanium and Steel they both have the dual head Solid/ Open Comb. For me the titanium has a softer feel but they shave equally well. With all the razors I have bought and tried the Timeless always is in my top 3.

The bronze is indeed beautiful, but the stainless and titanium baseplates support the blade more securely towards the edge and give the more comfortable shave.  Granted, this is just my opinion, but if you are getting just one Timeless, get the baseplate design that launched the company into the loving hearts of many DE shavers.  The stainless and titanium do cost more, but you are getting a superior baseplate design and shaving experience over the bronze.

I have never had a smoother shave in my life than the Timeless .38 SB bronze! However, I am still looking for that "one razor" that is smooth and more efficient than the SB bronze because I have a tough beard with all the white/grey whiskers. The SB bronze does not get everything on my jaw lines. Everything else about it is great.

What’s your preference between SB and the OC head?

If there’s people that have tried both would appreciate the input on this. I’m eager to add a Timeless 0.95 but am having a hard time figuring out which head to choose especially because I can purchase the SB for significantly cheaper than an OC or dual comb. If the difference is minimal I would probably opt to save my money and go with the SB.

I use the Open comb for my first pass then switch to the SB for the 2 and touchup. If I was only going to buy one I’d go with the solid bar. It is the smoothest in my opinion.

+1 on this.  I have all three base plates in SS .68 and .95, as well as the SB and OC in bronze, and find myself using the SS scalloped .95 as my daily driver.  The scalloped is prettier, but doesn't shave noticeably better than the SB.

I’ve never owned a timeless but I am interested. . I am leaning towards the timeless in SS over the Titanium because I don’t like the look of the Titanium also I am wondering if the .68 is too mild ? And If the .95 may be too aggressive ? I typically shave every other day I have a coarse beard and i I usually do a 3 pass kind of shave with a fourth for clean up if needed . Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated . Thanks

I own both a SS95DC polished and a Ti95SB and am an every other day shaver. It wasn't until I received the Ti95SB but because it shaved me so close after 3 passes there just wasn't enough stubble by the next day to shave. If I was to suggest anything it would be to spend a little extra and go with the DC base plate. Its really nice to switch it up every now and then and especially when you have an extra day or two where you couldn't shave for some reason...
