Anybody here have both the BBS-1 and the WR1? For those who have both, which is your favorite? What are the differences in efficiency, smoothness, safety, comfort? Is one of these razors better at certain features, while the other exceeds in other areas?

I know there are some folks that have tried both. I just traded my BBS1 for a brass WR1 SB. I'll let you know what I think. The design is different so I imagine the shave will be different. I hope a little more aggressive on the WR1

You are correct Sleeper. I own both and like both, but they are completely different. I have always felt the BBS-1 was a tad more aggressive than the WR1.

You are going to love the brass. I really enjoy mine, the weight is perfect. Enjoy it and when you get a chance let me know how you like it.

Your poll leaves out my answer: I own both and can't decide which one I prefer

They are both beautiful but they shave differently. The BBS-1 seems to be more aggressive at first, but turns out to give as smooth a shave as the SB...seriously it would give me sleepless nights, if I had to decide between them
