Does anyone use the above the tie aluminum slant as a daily driver?

I don't, but I don't see why someone shouldn't.

Do you have one? How do you like it?

I have a SS S2 kronos that i use no problem. I know they are not the same but they are a smooth design and if you keep a light touch with good technique you should be good.

I have always liked aluminum razors for daily shaves.  I do have the Calypso M1 and debating selling or buying different heads to try (I also have aluminum Seygus and Guerrilla razors).  

I had a slant razor once.  Newbie and sold quickly.  Nice razor - I just had my mind set on something else

The iKon X3 is gentle enough to be used daily by a person with a sufficiently heavy beard.

I looked at the ikon. Just something about the black and blue att that I think looks sharp.

I was very critical of the "two tone" razor at release and never planned to own one.  I have come 180° and really like plus purchased the razor.  

I won the Ikon X3 in raffle - nice razor.  As a newbie back then, I decided to master the SB razors and sold the slant.  From memory, I could see daily use with the Ikon.  The ATT razor has many different options and good prices on the various heads if you like change sometimes.

The Calypso S1 is imho a bit more aggressive than the SS version. That came as a surprise to me. Also means that I could use the SS S1 as daily razor, the Calypso S1 not.

I get it. You have to like what you use. You’re the one who will display it, see it in your hand and look at it in the mirror.

Yes I've heard it is a bit more aggressive than the ss version. Couldn't take it any longer and ordered it about an hour ago. Figured if it isn't my cup of tea I can exchange it for ss and it would already be half paid. On that note I've heard nothing but stellar reviews on the ss s1. Haven't been able to find much on the aluminum though but we'll see now I guess. Apparently all the parts are interchangeable as well. I asked about a open comb slant In aluminum and stan said they don't make it but I could get a ss s2 plate for it. Then I thought "hey, how would a blue base plate with ss cap and handle look?" It never ends I swear. Would think that would be the way to go though, steel cap would be smoother I'd think.

I've never used a slant, but I can not think of any good reason why one would not be as good as any other DE as a daily driver.

I’ve been using my SS ATT S2 for the whole last week and I can’t get enough of it.
Smooth, efficient and aggressive, I only have 5 shaves with it, but so far I’m very impressed.
Don’t know why people don’t recommend it as a daily driver.
