The Atlas H1 is an aggressive shaver and is best suited to experienced DE shavers and those with tough, coarse beards who need a more aggressive than normal shaver.
Only available in UK and Europe from Executive Shaving. Manufactured to the highest possible tolerances by craftsmen who take an obvious pride in what they make. These are not razors that are churned out in their 1000s, these razors are individually made and finished.
The Atlas H1 is a mid size razor, it weighs in at 100g, the handle is 70mm (3") long.
The craftsmanship, look and feel of this razor puts it right up there with iKon and Feather. Presented in a satin-matte finish. The base plate is engraved with the words 'ABOVE THE TIE 2013 MADE IN USA'.
The handle features a deep barber pole knurl, no danger of losing your grip on this razor while you shave. The top head has two protruding pins that fit precisely into two dimples on the base plate which ensures perfect blade symmetry when assembled.
100% high grade stainless steel.
HOW TO USE
Ensure the face is well lubricated using a pre shave treatment and a shaving soap, cream or gel.
Shave with the razor at a 30° angle to your face using a sharp blade.
Stretch your skin as you shave ensuring the area you are shaving is pulled tight.
We recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.
** Use little to no pressure - these blades are extremely sharp!**
I'm not usually a fan of modern razors, I always prefer vintage ones, but when I looked at this beauty I saw it had a handle design similar to a Gillette 16 Aristocrat, which is no bad thing. If I were going to buy a 3 piece razor this would be my choice. A sensational bit of kit...............
