    Boss-Mastiff-Mariner-SABI/Jaws-Pearl-Cadet Frankenrazor (L) v R41 (R). R41 smoother, Franken more aggressive and first impression is that it is more efficient. R41 definitely easier ATG on my head but Franken perfectly viable. Never had a razor smooth the moustache area near BBS in one WTG pass. The Pearl cap can be funky and impair alignment, the Boss cap with the Pearl OC baseplate works better. Will have to try the Muhle cap, I expect that would decrease aggressiveness quite a bit.

    Hi everyone. Here's my OC SOTD for today with my 1919 Old Type from a Pocket Edition that my spouse and I put together about 4 years ago. The razor set was completely trashed when I received it. I think it was found in an old shed in Michigan. I got it on eBay. Here we go then-

    Thank you Andrew. Most of my DE razors are OC since I seem to enjoy using them the most.

    Currently using a SS Flare, have yet to try an OC. How do you like this? Aggressive? Moderate?

    For me not aggressive at all. Loaded up with a Gillette Silver Blue it works really well on workweek stubble. The more tech savvy Gents around here could more than likely give you the blade gap etc.

    Hi everybody, here's my OC SOTD for today-

    [​IMG]

    Today's razor was a bit of a Frankenrazor. I used a nickel plated Gillette New SC head/UFO Kaiser handle combination. The pair worked well together. The blade was a Persona Platinum Chrome, which are an excellent blade I might add. I completed one pass with some touch up, for a DFS. The Clubman smoothed out the mild irritation I had, and I finished the shave by a squirt of my new favorite cologne, Safari. Yup, it was another good shave! Have a good day all!
