A thank you to @Rabid Badger on P&C. Timeless 0.38 Bronze with a scalloped top-cap.
Beautifully finished, the handle screws onto the baseplate with absolute perfect precision and feedback. Lovely weight, not sure if I will keep it polished or patina in the future. Might see if I can spray some car nano-sealant on it and stop the patina.
The shave? Paired to Astra (2nd shave) and smooth, smooth and smooth. Not as close or efficient as the Timeless 0.95 SB. Could perhaps almost compare to the 0.68 or somewhere in between. Angle very easy to find, slightly shallow. Don't go too deep. I forgot this was a 'first shave' and should have known better. Lost my attention doing a much too fast cross-chin shave and promptly the razor bites! So not quite as 'beginner friendly' as say a Rockwell 6S on R2/3.
Minimal irritation otherwise.
I like it. More so than the Rockwell... don't think I will keep the Rockwell at all. You could happily shave with this if you preferred razors a moderate razor. I feel it isn't as gentle as the blade gap suggests, perhaps due to the angle and exposure... YMMV.
