I have a Calypso R1. Being aluminum the razor is exceptionally light. I found the fit and finish to be on par with other ATT razors. The coloring was darker than pictured. The shave is very similar to the SS R1. I attribute any perceived difference down to the weight. Overall I have been exceptionally pleased with the razor. I do hope that additional ATT razors and plates will be made in aluminum as well.

Had my first shave with the M1 Calypso this morning (loaded with a Personna blue in this case), and wow, what a dream! Honestly one of the best off-the-bat shaving experiences I've had. Zero irritation, zero weepers, and very effective whisker-whacking. For context, I have pretty thick whiskers but sensitive skin (I get weepers and irritation easily). I'm finding mild-but-efficient razors to be best for me, and I'll say this one will likely beat the AS-D2 since the angle is even easier to find and the head does better under the nose. The light weight makes it feel nimble, which I really like. It was as easy-going, in many ways, as my OneBlade, but felt more adroit, and again, wins for under-the-nose access. I'm really glad I picked this up!
David : DE shaving since Nov 2014. Nowadays giving in to the single-edge siren call.
I am enjoying my Calypso R1. I like the light weight and it is mild but efficient as others have noted. I have a coarse beard, yet it gives a nice BBS in my usual 3 passes and touch ups. Great job ATT!
