The Windsor Pro is Above the Tie’s third line of razors. It is the culmination of everything we have learned from the creation of the Windsor and the Classic. We have listened to your recommendations and comments, and put that feedback directly into the Windsor Pro. In our opinion, the Windsor Pro is the smoothest, most versatile, and the best looking safety razor we’ve made so far, which means it is the smoothest, most versatile and best looking safety razor on the planet.
Above the Tie enthusiasts will immediately notice the mirror finish polish on the razor. That polishing does more than just make the razor look crisp. It will also round the edges of the teeth on the open comb model to improve comfort. The underside of the cap and top of the base plate are bead blasted to a smooth satin finish. This keeps the tolerances tight while removing machine marks, for a more refined look. Other improvements include:
The Blade Angle has been adjusted slightly to help men with different beard styles shave comfortably.
By slightly increasing the blade exposure compared to the Windsor, we were able to retain the smoothness of the Windsor but bring back the sing of the Classic. Yes. You really can have it all.
BLADE TABS AND RINSE SLOTS
Like in the Windsor, the blade tabs remain covered for a clean look. They remain just inside the edge of the cap to hold the blade in place during assembly.
However, unlike the Windsor, the Windsor Pro features enlarged rinse slots, making it our best rinsing razor to date.
STEEL. ALUMINUM. YOUR CHOICE.
Like the steel model, the aluminum version of the Windsor Pro is bead blasted where the blade contacts the razor then anodized for a finish that is totally unique. The aluminum version of the Windsor Pro will be released at the same time as the steel version.

MANUFACTURING AND ASSEMBLY
As makers of the highest quality razors, we are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to provide our customers with great products at affordable prices. For years, we have been able to do that with parts that were manufactured fully in the U.S.A., and have been proud to do so.
However, due to increased competition within the razor market, it appears that the best partnership opportunity to supply the parts for our newest razor include suppliers outside the United States. It was not a decision we made lightly, but it was important to us to make sure we provided our customers with the quality, service, and value they have come to expect from Above the Tie.
The Windsor Pro will still be designed and assembled right here in the U.S.A., using quality parts from around the globe. The first model will be the SB90 with a .90mm blade gap. More parts and combinations will be released in the months to follow, including a mild to average blade gap in solid bar and open comb, the slant in solid bar and open comb, and the single edge in solid bar and open comb. Atlas and Colossus handle configurations are also on their way in the near future.
