This is my ranking after using and owning these two razors. Up front, both are outstanding! In the KARVE, I own plates B, C, D, E, and F with (2) heads and handles. I'm only comparing plate-E to the GC .84-P. However, I'd give the same marks to the KARVE plate-F. As in a specific shave, the Game Changer has given me the best head shave, so far, in terms of BBS. Both razors get me to BBS, with face shaving, with a higher risk of a nick with the Game Changer. I've tested this in a traditional 3-pass pattern, as well as WTG, ATG, ATG pattern. Your opinions may differ! With a slightly higher price but higher quality and versatility, I'd steer a friend to the KARVE razor over the GC. The handle knurling on the KARVE is impeccably perfect, as good as any $200-$300 razor. Being able to change plates is a plus for owning a KARVE. The KARVE is made at the quality of a Timeless or an Above the Tie razor for a fraction of the price, approximately $100. The KARVE remains my favorite and recommendation!!! UPDATE (March 13, 2019): I still have an endearing love for the KARVE, BUT I'm actually getting slightly better shaves from the Game Changer. As smooth as my KARVE plate-C but with the efficiency of the Plate-F. Both are outstanding!!!
