    I have the GC .84 and the Karve with OC c & B and SB D & C. I agree the GC .84 is a great value, it was my Go-To for a long time. I feel the Karve C OC and D SB both shave similar to my GC .84 but the GC’s smaller cap profile is easier to work in the under nostril area. I recently got the Wunderbar Slant Gen II and it is my current favorite DE head.

    I prefer the Karve to the RazoRock, for one simple reason. The Karve has its posts on the topcap, whereas the Game Changer has its posts on the baseplate. It is easier to load a blade onto the topcap, than onto the baseplate.
    Also, because the posts go through the baseplate on the Karve, you can shim up the blade if you wish, and as much as you wish. Because of it's converse design, it is difficult to shim up the blade on the Game Changer,
    and you are very limited in the number of shims you can use. C'est tout.
