    I believe @Gnomeo0228 would be interested in KROC. In his recent Stoylin videos, he used the Karve, and made no bones about how much he likes it.

    Do you find your D-OC plate to be equivalent to your E plate? Just wondering.

    Enjoy your shaves,

    I have a 3 inch handled brass C razor on the way, due to me Saturday, hurricane Dorian permitting. Looking forward to it.

    I think so. It is very close, the E plate may be very slightly more aggressive. I do feel that the OC plate is not as smooth as the SB plates, however slight as well.

    97FD61D2-E1B5-4989-AE36-971E8A291F36.jpeg Here’s my Christopher Bradley razor with plate E; I also have plate F as well. With the E plate I get an excellent shave even when I have to shave off a day and a half’s worth of stubble.

    That's great, Gary! With all the focus on the stainless release you should have no problem picking one up. I love my Karve. I have the B, D, and E bar plates and am waiting for a B-OC which is according to Karve data equivalent to a C bar plate. I originally purchased my Karve with the E plate, which delivers an incredibly close shave, but requires that I pay attention to my technique as it is much more efficient than I have been used to. That's why I bought the B plate originally, because it is blade neutral like my Krona. I never gave much consideration to the closeness of my shave over the years, but now realize that the Krona delivered a DFS, but rarely, if ever, a BBS. I had to wait for my Karve and my Hawk for that experience. Welcome to the club in advance!

    Enjoy your shaves,

    My shave this AM with the new Karve and a B plate. Ended with a DFS, but nowhere near as close as the shave I get with my E plate. Love these razors!

    Jayaruh’s brush worked well. Guess I’ll use the new Yaqi Grace razor tomorrow.

    Enjoy your shaves,
