The Above the Tie Single Edge (SE1) Razor is a mid-aggressive shaver.
Crafted from high grade 303 solid stainless steel in Tennessee, USA. 
This particular version has the Above the Tie Kronos handle which is slightly longer and heavier than most razor handles.
Why shave with a single edge razor? Well the head is considerably wider than you'll find on a double edge safety razor, the SE1 has a 50.5mm wide head compared to 41mm on most safety razors. This additional width means less passes are needed for a close shave and less passes leads to less irritation. The blades the SE1 are compatible with are better quality than safety razor blades and longer lasting too so you'll get a better shave. Shaving with the SE1 is as close as you'll get to shaving with a cut throat razor.
Compatible with Feather injector blades

WE SAY


It has to be said, Above the Tie make stunning razors. I love that you can see the machine tool marks on the underside of head and I love the flawless finish on all their razors. As a ex toolmaker (Timex) I appreciate the superior engineering on these razors.
If you are looking for a single edge razor but don't want to spend £165.00 on this beauty then consider The Claymore which is also made from solid stainless steel and is less than half the price of the SE1.

Dimensions:
Head width: 50.5mm
Head depth at maximum point: 8mm
Weight: 119g

Handle diameter: 12.5mm
Comes with the Above the Tie Kronos handle.


INGREDIENTS

HOW TO USE


If you have used a safety razor then the technique needed for using a single edge is very similar. What you will notice is the width of the head and the weight of the razor. Take your time, use a sharp blade and a capable lubricating shaving cream and you're half way there. We recommend Castle Forbes or Executive Shaving Natural Shaving Cream as they are the most lubricating creams around.

Received this razor this morning with a pack of Feather Professional injector blades and Wow what can I say the shave was absolutely amazing , only two passes with a little touch up no irretation at all my smoothest shave ever . I was a little aprehensive at first because they say these blades are really sharp but no need to worry just take your time . The only little niggle is the razor did not come with any blades. Don't let this put you off the razor and the blades are outstanding .

I just received this razor today and have already tested it. For those that like aggressive razors this will satisfy them, it feels more fierce than my straight razors so I will need to practice with it a fair bit more before I feel totally comfortable. I may try a slightly lighter handle, that said the quality of this razor is stunning and I am happy with my purchase. Quick turn around of my order as well.
