ATT Windsor R1: First Shave Assessment.

Hi all, I just had my first shave with the ATT R1 Windsor. (I have all the regular heads from ATT that are non slant (sold both slants a while ago). That includes M1,M2, R1, R2, H1, H2, SE1 and SE2. My top 3 are the R1, SE2 and R2.

Looks: After being used to all ATTs, this is even better looking with its incredible polished look. I definitely prefer the polished look and wished all my ATTs had this finish.

Windsor Comparison with the regular R1: Right off the bat I felt the Windsor needed a different shave angle than my R1 (the angle on the R1 is second nature to me at this point), probably had to use a little bit more flat of an angle with the Windsor. Feel wise, it seems one of the 2: Either the Windsor is milder than the regular R1, or head geometry provides a smoother shave by itself. I could not feel as much as the blade, as I do with the regular R1. The feel is much much closer to a DE89 or M1 or M2. I will need more shaves to confirm this, but thats how I see it right now. Also, the razor does provide less blade chatter than most DE razors, and its probably between a Single Edge Razor and a DE, blade chatter wise, which I LOVE.

Shave Results. Even on my first go with the ATT Windsor, it provided a very close shave (almost certain it was BBS), no irritation at all, But I have lots of experience with ATT, so that might had come into play with this.

I will say this, if after 10-15 shaves, I can get the same results with the Windsor, as I do with my R1 or R2, it will probably make the regular R's obsolete, since it would mean it will give the same quality of a shave, with around 50% increase in smoothness.

I will do a final review in a month or so, after using it extensively. Would love to hear your opinions on the Windsor as well!

You are more than welcome! That Cooper looks absolutely stunning. I might get a Cooper one in the following months as well. Yes, I have an ATT addiction Sad

The new Above the Tie razors are definitely lookers. This was actually the first review I have read. It’d be nice to read further impressions and see some more of these beauties on the SOTD threads and elsewhere. Perhaps with a little more time…
Whenever I go to shave, I assume there’s someone else on the planet shaving, so I say “I’m gonna go shave, too.”

This is the first review of the Windsor that I’ve seen as well. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on it after you’ve got some time with it. It looks like a beauty!

Nice write-up about your first shave with the ATT Windsor R1, herbert7890! Thank you for sharing your initial impressions! There really haven't been many posts(that I've seen) regarding this razor. I look forward to your thoughts after you get to know this razor better.
