The Wolfman and Above the Tie Slants razors have absolutely killed my den.  It's at the point where I just don't want to use anything else.  I cannot tell you the number of razors I've been through but there haven't been many DE razors that I haven't tried.  At this point there are very few razors that remain in my den and it's because of Wolfman & ATTSmile

Have still to try both but heard similar stories from other shavers. One guy sold all his DE's for the same reason as his ATT was just too good
Would love to buy a ATT at some point
Only have  a Kronos handle paired up with a Muhle R41 head and the handle is superb.
Must confess though of the two handle the Atlas looks more purty to me.

Unfortunately, those razors are out of my reach right now. Too pricey. Maybe some day I could afford one.

I totally understand this.  The great thing is that there are a ton of affordable razors that will hit the mark effectively as well.

I'm at the same point with my Weber. Not happy I missed the one you sold, love mine so much I want a backup. Still have a few more razors to try before I name it my Razor of the Gods but it's getting there. The RAD is still to strong though and I cant let my Mongoose and ATT go, still enjoy shaving with them as well.

I did finally get around to cleaning up some flea market finds over the weekend and gave a Schick G Injector a couple shaves since. Wow, that is a nice gentle shaver as well. Very happy with it. And the thing is just beautiful with the gold plating and creme Bakelite handle.

At one time I had four Webers and I loved them all.   I think they are excellent razors for the money and I'm sad they aren't making heads anymore.  I preferred my ATT and other razors to the Weber so eventually I got rid of them.

I've seen you rave about Wolfman Razors and seriously had my preferred plastic payment card in hand and was going to order.  Then I saw this.

http://wolfmanrazors.com/pages/availability

This seriously rubbed me the wrong way, and made me think "it will be a cold day in ___________" before I ever do business with this company. In my view, this is a company that has had some very satisfied and happy customers who have given them great buzz and FREE advertising via forums and word of mouth and they have had some very real success because of it.  What is the first thing they do in turn?... raise prices by  40% on a razor head that already cost 125.00!!! They can list all the reasons they want as to why the price is increasing, but if any other product on the market went up 40% consumers would balk, and that is what I am doing.  40% increase in price and oh, by the way, you have to wait 4-5 months for our product... are they serious? Unreal.

They are free to conduct business as they please and as a consumer, I am free to lament their policies and decisions as well as their modus operandi; that is what the free market and capitalism is all about.  Personally, I hope their decision to stick it to consumers bites them hard....very hard.  I ordered an ATT Atlas H1 instead.

I'm with you, Chris. The ATT razors were a game changer for me. I've also got a Wolfman on order.

From a cost standpoint, it may seem daunting. I know it's why I shied away from ATT for so long. But folks, they're worth it. The precision, consistency, build quality, etc. are incredible. They're truly BIFL razors. I'm expecting the same if not better from the Wolfman.

That's the way I feel about a select few SE razors... no incentive to try any others.

I definitely understand your perspective.  I created a thread sometime back about being disappointed at their decision to raise prices.  That said, I feel like their have every right to do it.  According to Wolfman, they want to put more time in perfecting fewer razors rather than selling on a large scale.
