I have been a traditional wet shaver for around 7 years, and a Open comb enthusiast for around 6 years... I purchased the Atlas M2 razor based upon feedback from my twin brother who has had several razors from Stan, and gave him a shining review... I had both great blade feel, as well as audible feedback. Within 2 passes, I attained a BBS shave. I would highly recommend this razor for anyone who wants an exceptional razor, of a superior build quality, that is truly a razor worthy of passing onto your heirs.
