Thanks in advance for your input.

I’ve been away from the forums for a bit but back and have a question. Been using a Timeless .68 SB for a while not as my main razor but I’ve been finding I want an OC.

Next I’ve decided I want a titanium razor for a bit lighter than a stainless. So I’m considering picking up a Timeless titanium but figured I would ask her for any other ideas on a razor I could go with. I haven’t kept track of new makers and other razors for a few years so might be ones I’m not aware of.

I’ve always dreamed of a Titanium Wolfman but doubt that will ever happen.

I would stay with Timeless and get a .68 or .95 OC in Titanium.

I agree in staying with timeless.  There aren't too many titanium options out there.

If you are going to the Ti Timeless I might suggest a dual comb plate for it so you have both when you need them without having to switch razors...

Seems like my first thought of picking up a Timeless might be the correct one.

if you can afford the best, why waste time on the rest.

Nice photo, Mike. I also like the concept of dual comb razors. My only experience has been with iKon. Have you tried one? The B1OSS is a regular part of my rotation. I find the comb side to be more aggressive. Previously I also used the aluminum version they made. I don’t remember the model number. It was a very good shaver, but I found the coated stainless version to be smoother and sleeker. That razor, the SB side was more aggressive. As I remember. I think if I ever take the plunge into boutique razors it would be a dual comb.

Excellent choice Phillip.  You had mentioned wanting the oc.   Did you go with the .68 or .95?

Got a .68 OC & SB in titanium. Just finished my shave with the 68OC Ti and I’m astonished. My .68 SB stainless was one of the best razors I’ve ever used for shave quality. ..... BUT somehow the .68OC was more efficient, smoother, and felt less aggressive... not sure how that happens. Used the same Kia blades I normal use and same soap to change as little of the variables as possible.

This makes me think maybe I could try a .95 but might be too aggressive and this shave was the best I’ve had in a long time so I’m extremely happy at the moment.

Without sounding reduntant, Timeless seems to be a good answer.  I debated buying before, reviews are positive on most forums.

Hey Chaz, I've never tried the B1 before but its good you have it in your rotation. It makes sense that the OC side is more aggressive as is the Timeless. I do a 2 pass shave every other day with the OC for pass 1 / SB for pass 2 with the same BBS result every shave out. This is the reason the Ti Timeless is the only razor in my cabinet as it made all others obsolete shortly after it found its home here...

Maybe a SS head with a Ti handle? If you like a “head heavy” balance this might be your best bet since there are lots of SS options out there.

That's a slick looking razor. And I love Mandalay Bay, although the NY-NY craps table is typically more generous to me!
