First pass WTG. My first thought was here we go again smooth shave with zero blade feel, if not for the toast sound I thought I forgot a blade, when I rinse hardly any beard will be removed. WRONG! Took off nearly all the whiskers.
2nd pass XTG. Good sound and again no blade feel. If I would have stopped it would be DFS.
3rd pass ATG It was so smooth I even went across the grain on my neck, which for me is always difficult. Rinse, WOW cotton ball BBS.
IMHO this razor is amazing, beautiful look, shiny, great weight and the best DE First shave I have ever had. YMMV but I now believe a razor can be extremely smooth, easy to maneuver and give an awesome shave.


Are you still loving this razor?

I am. Used it last night and had a 2 pass near BBS shave without having to think about the shave at all. It is in my top 5 razors and I'm glad I got one. I sold the Titanium 2 because I enjoyed the shave with the 17-4 more and 2 of my other top 5 are titanium because I like the feel of the shave better with titanium usually.

Glad to hear it. Doesn't hurt that it's also one of the best looking razors.
Keep me in mind if you ever decide you want to sell it.

I like mine a lot except for the handle. I find it slippery and I hate having to hold my razors with a tight grip.

A little alum on my fingers and no slippage

I changed mine to a two-tone Stork Taipan handle.
