Can anyone tell me how much blade feel a timeless .68 scalloped bar has compared to a .68 game changer? I don't know much about them and wondering how blade forward they are.

Timeless one of best shavers I have ever used period.  If there is a fault it is the thickness of the head assembly getting in tight placed such as nostrils.  But would rank it as best pure shaver I have ever used and am a duFour DE owner exclusively now.  The Timeless design is unique accounting for the thick head assembly but quality of shave, feedback and aggressive beard removal combined with mild feel on skin is amazing.  My friend has a 0,68 OC for sale if interested only because he is a diplomat and needs perfection around nostrils for work but he too feels it best he ever used in other regards.  Again Timeless OC is unique design that eliminates biting found in other OC razors by having teeth facing backward - worth a look and think it the best of their line up having shaved them all

The Game Changer .68 it a bit milder than the Timeless .68. The latter definitely has more blade feel and it is more efficient, for me, any way. The only thing that others have mentioned is how thick the head is which isn't a major issue once you get used to it.

Timeless Titanium 0.68 OC is my only razor now. It’s the best DE I’ve ever used. I’m only trying to get a Wolfman WR2 now.

Thank you, answered what I was wondering perfectly. I've heard about the thickness of the head but I don't shave under my nose so doesn't really bother me....as long as it's not rockwell 6s big.

I have a Timeless 0.68 that I use as my daily driver, and I have no issues under the nose. I do a WTG and then XTG and that delivers smooth shaves every time.

The Timeless .68 SB works superbly for me, and I have no issues with the size of the head.

I hadn't meant to imply that the head was excessively large, but it is larger than the majority of the DEs available. However, it isn't as bulky as the Rockwell's.

What he said. The head did bother me at first but now it's smooth shaving.

Gentlemen,

The Timeless is an exceptionally well made razor, as well as a superb shaver. The 0.68 in the scalloped head and base plate is still my favorite of the Timeless offering. The razor has always given me a clean and comfortable shave. The only drawback for me is the exposed blade tabs.

The Timeless .68 SB is the razor I keep returning to.  I currently own or have owned the bulk of the high dollar razors and none are as comfortable of a shave for me as the Timeless.  

It excels in that is it exceptionally smooth and comfortable to shave with while still being very efficient.

I don't have a lot of blade feel with the timeless 0.95 OC.  If you want blade feel you want a Muhle R41, Merkur Futur, or Charcoal goods lvl 3 oc.  Mind you I haven't tried all modern DE razors but I do have 3 wolfmans.  The three I listed have more blade feel than even the 0.95 OC wolfman WR-1.

I want some but not overwhelming. More than the .68 game changer for example. Side note if you ever want to sell a wolfman I'd be happy to take it if your hands Smile

Has anyone compared the timeless 0.68 head (scalloped plate) to the RS10 medium aggressive plate?
Interested to know how they relate to each other

I purchased the RS10 with the mild plate and the .68 on the same order, which arrived together in the same shipping bx.  I stared at them for a few days before I used them-a rare act of patience for me-in case I chickened out and decided to return one or both.

Kept both, and shaved with the .68 first, got the hang of it quickly even with my mediocre technique, and love love love this razor.  It gives me a 3-pass bbs and no irritation, and is forgiving of angle and technique.

Several days later I tried the RS10.  It is very smooth, making a Feather blade almost feel as if there wasn't even a blade there.  3 pass plus lots of touch-up to get a bbs.  Arranged to buy the aggreessive plate, thinking that wouid be the smooth and efficient answer to my prayers......

The aggressive plate is very efficient, requires a pretty specific angle, like the mild plate, and can be a bit rough with poorer technique.  

For me, the .68 shaves me better, given my technique and my work schedule (I do not have unlimited time to shave).  I am going to put the mild plate back on the RS10 after one or two more tries with the aggressive one.

seems like the timeless .68 is far more intuitive and easy to find the correct angle with, while the RS10 has a bit of a learning curve.

thats good info....for 300+ shekels, I would want more of a sure thing as I cant afford experimenting.

For me the Timeless 0.68 SB was a very easy shave. I did not notice much blade feel.
I bought a 0.68 OC from a member and plan on trying it out in the am.
I want just a tad more efficiency and did not want to jump up to the 0.95.
