The Paradigm 17-4 stainless steel has the quality and attention to detail you expect from Paradigm. Rather than take the titanium razor and simply remake it in stainless steel, we have redesigned the razor from the ground up; a "redo" in stainless would have  had far too much mass, especially in the handle. The head design is a bit more modern looking, and the shave, while still very efficient, is a bit less aggressive. 

The handle is also completely redesigned, both for interest and to reduce mass. It is only 80mm long and is round. Still present is the trademark Paradigm geometric motif, with elegance in simplicity. Total mass is 100 grams.
