    It was mentioned by Shane on the Dart thread over at DFS that he recommends a steeper angle with the Dart. So I did some experimenting and found that it is a little smoother with a slightly steeper angle but the Dart is still an aggressive razor. I did two passes and had no need for a third because at this point I was already BBS. I splashed on a generous amount of the Glacial Lemony Orange and had no sting from the alcohol, a second later the glacial freeze kicked in and my face is feeling great. Have a great day my friends!

    So how do you like it compared to the Razorock GC?

    This is a hard question to answer because both razors have their pros and cons. If I only had these two razors the GC would be my daily driver. The GC may be less efficient but the price that the Dart pays for that efficiency is loss of smoothness. I think the Dart is less sensitive to angle then the GC, but there are cons that go along with that too. The Dart can feel harsh with too shallow of an angle. If you get the angle wrong with the GC wrong it is just less efficient. I think the finish of the GC is better as well. The finish on the Dart is straight off of the milling machine with tooling marks and all. Both razors are precisely machined to tight tolerances with no need to fiddle with blade alignment, just drop the blade in and tighten down the handle. If someone were looking for an aggressive 3pc SS razor in the sub $100 then the Dart would fit that bill nicely. I'd be curious to hear a comparison between the Dart and the Rockwell 6s as it is the only sub $100 SS razor on the market right now that might be able to compete with the Dart in terms of efficiency. That's my $.02. I will continue to use the Dart exclusively for the next couple of weeks to see if thoughts change.

    The more I use the Dart the more I appreciate it aggressiveness/efficency. This razor is not for the faint of heart, it is just as efficient and aggressive as the ATT H, Fatip OC, RazoRock Wunderbar, Futur (Clone). It demands your full attention and a feather light touch. I am doing two passes with the Dart WTG and then ATG with some light buffing in the trouble spots and it just annihilates any and all stubble, BBS finish. No burn from the AS and no detectable irritation.

    What about the Karve Christopher Bradley? I've heard great things about it and although made of brass can be had under $100. Is the Dart better than the Karve CB?

    I don't own a Karve nor have I ever used one. There are some comparison between the Dart and the Karve on the DFS Dart thread. Based on the reviews that I've read it is likely that the Dart has more blade feel then the Karve except maybe on the E and F plates.
