Handle length doesn't seem to make much difference in my shaves, but I like deep cut knurling. Your thoughts on which of the three ATT handles has the deepest knurling?

TIA

The Kronos handle that I have feels very grippy and deep. Don't have the other so I cannot comment.

I have both the Atlas and Kronos handles and would give the nod to the Atlas for grip but they are both fine handles. Kronos is a bit longer.

I only have the Atlas handle. The knurling is mid range in my opinion.

Though this isn't an ATT handle. The handles from Weber have super deep knurling. He probably made those handles for people who shave--underwater.

I have the Atlas and I don't think slippage would be a problem. Knurling is sharp and grippy much like a coarse mill file - it would probably do in a pinch for filing hard to get at interior circular surfaces of wood or metal. Those guys at ATT have thought of everything.

Both Atlas and Kronos are great handles. I usually like shorter handles better, but the Kronos feels better in my hand. Also, it feels a bit grip-ier (yeah, not a word) for me. Bottom line, you can't go wrong with them IMHO.

I only have the Atlas and the knurling is amazing. The knurling is so deep, you can actually turn the whole handle just be griping on the thread and moving it up and down.

Thanks, gents. I guess, as stated and implied, either Atlas or Kronos would serve me fine.
