    If there is still room on the list I'd love a chance to try one out. They are both beautiful but that brass beast:love029::love029:.

    An all brass single edge twist knob adjustable that takes both Gem or shick injector/proline blades would be killer. If your looking for ideas that is.
    I think the TNNSER made just about everyone happy. At least everyone that likes SE.

    Just noticed that it's being passed around. If possible I'd like to be on the list.

    I've done four shaves with the aluminum razor now. It handles beautifully. The BIC blades don't match up as well as the Suneko so I've landed on a 5 setting with the Suneko as my go to. This is a more aggressive setting than I liked on the brass. How much of the difference is weight, how much Tom's tweaked settings I can't be sure.

    Having gotten comfortable with the setting I matched up with the Tom-X which according to the maker shares much the same geometry. I just eyeballed the Tom-X to get a similar gap to the new razor. There is a vast difference in weight 55g vs 97g, so needless to say the shaves don't feel the same just familiar. The nimbleness of the lighter razor is appreciated on my head, where I'd give the edge to the Tom-X on my beard. Both are pretty smooth, good blade feel, and very efficient. With most DEs I do pick ups on my head with the Enders Speed, with both of these that was obviously unnecessary.

    At 55g the aluminum might be a bit light for some. I suggested to Tom folks might want to swap the brass cap, which would bring the weight over 70g and into Black Beauty weight territory.

    I'm very happy with this razor. It will go up against the Progress tomorrow.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Progress on 4, Tom's razor on 5. I find it easier to find optimum angle with the Progress and favor its weight but the new contender is I think a bit more efficient and very smooth. Suneko (2). [​IMG]

    Apollo Mk3. The German razor has a lot more blade feel on mid setting and is a bit more efficient. Even so the lightweight challenger comports itself very very well, the more I use it the more I like it.[​IMG]

    This was my eighth shave with The TAR. I can feel that my right bicep is bulking up. I actually backed off to 1 today after I did a little blood letting on my chin. I am getting too familiar with it. It is still quite aggressive. I am getting close shaves, but I find I have to really go slow because of the weight. I think I will take the weekend off from the TAR. I am awaiting the Alumi-TAR before returning both to Tom for adjustments.

    This is definitely going to be a fun pass-around with Tom’s newest creation. Thanks for making it happen @twhite !
