I have seen one of these on the secondary market for $225 all in shipped. I'm just wondering if that's a good deal, because I looked at one online and they run about $259 without tax and shipping. Just curious what everybody else thinks. I've been wanting to buy this handle for sometime, now especially since I have the bronze one.

Have you checked the returns section of the Timeless website? You might get a better deal there.

I checked last night and can buy another whole razor and handle cheaper by a few bucks minus the stand which I don't need. I cant believe I didnt even realize they had that section. I could have bought my bronze for $50 less but I have no regrets about that razor at all.

Yeah, thanks! I looked it up and they are great deals. Plus they specify that they "MIGHT" have flaws which means they are likely still in excellent shape.

Timeless stainless razors are all outstanding, regardless of whether you buy new, used or S&D.  The bronze is not just the stainless razor made from a different metal.  The design of the head on the bronze is different than on the stainless.  I no longer have the bronze because the stainless gives me better results.

That makes me curious on the performance of the stainless. I am sure it is excellent, but it may fare differently for me. I have had amazing success with the bronze, especially under my nose. How is the stainless under the nose for you, if you shave there. It has always been a difficult spot for me.

Mike, I have no issues under the nose with the Timeless stainless.

For 200 it is a nice razor, but after a few shave each time I found while it was aggressive and I was BBS after two passes my face felt irritated and abused. I have no cuts or scraps but my face felt raw. Yes aftershave helped with this but this was not my experience with my Muhle R41, Wolfman W2, or Charcoal goods lvl 3. I only use Astra green blades so this might be why as I know blades work differently in each razor.

I have the Bronze 0.38 razor. I did fell it was bit aggressive feeling with a Feather blade, but I like it with a milder blade. 0.95 is an aggressive razor. Personally, Astra blades have not worked well for me but everyone is different. Go with what works for you.
