I got the Atlas, as pictured. Spiral handle versus straight diamond whatever it's called. 15% off, couldn't refuse. Call me weak.

Isn't the Kronos the handle that they say is like a wood rasp? I like that idea. I tend to prefer getting hit over the brain with tactile sensations. I love my Rockwell 6S razor except for the smoothish handle, and because they went with standard threading, I'm greatly limited in trying other handles. Everything about the handle is nice, but I do wish I could trust metric threading as much as they claim it is safe to do so. I have a Maggard handle (that everyone has bootlegged) that is far superior in feel than the Rockwell. Those AtT razors are sharp.

I put a Maggard handle on my Edwin Jagger. Far superior for feel, yep. Don't know about the Kronos. I got the Atlas handle on the ATT because it looked sexier. Plenty of feel, whatever the case.

I tried Stirling Texas on Fire shaving soap from a sample today. I very much want campfire, forest fire, smoke etc as an option. All the reviews led me to believe this was that. I was really looking forward to trying this one, but it was disappointing. There's a sweet/spice (not spicey/peppery) element to this I DO NOT like. I don't know what it can be. I like everything on the scent list. With something as new-to-the-nose and complicated as shaving soaps can be, I have been known to change my mind, but I really wanted something like a flannel smells like after a night next to a campfire. This is NOT it. The hunt continues.
