    I got a 4" handle and C OC + D sb. The OC C is probably my fav razor. Later I got a D OC, but it is a bit rough for my taste. Now I got a 2nd , with a 3.25 handle...unused so far... Might get an AL version if ever available....prob OC C, too.

    I got a 3.5" OC "D" from Razor Emporium w 30%off, delivered in 3d.
    Caps, got them from Westcoast shaving...(they sold all their stock).
    If in the US, Razor Emp, Westcoast and Maggards tend to stock these...but now they sold most of it.... thing is : you know if they have it, and they ship quickly.

    I eventually got one, it is such a beauty.
    Since I always struggled with open combs I ordered the mildest AA base plate.

    Ah the Sunday shave, so much going on in the world, such stress...so yes, a small respite from all of it. Reached for the Karve CB with the A OC plate. Now, I haven’t been a fan of Feather Hi Stainless in the past but with a mild setup I favour super sharp blades. My go to blades are the Kai Super Stainless, Gillette Nacet or Polsilver IR in a mild razor. However, I got gifted a tuck of Feather DEs so why not give them a go today.

    Soap of the day CBL Black Rose Oud. I have been waiting to give this one a go. The performance of CBL soaps (all of them) is exceptionally good. Premium base, Tonsorial...just give them a go you won’t be disappointed. A lovely mild rose scent. Great lather and slickness always awaits with Chris’s soaps. Excellent!

    A wonderful three pass BBS shave. Topped it off with Thayers Witch Hazel Rose Petal and Guerlain Habit Rouge. Now it’s been a rough and uncertain week for a lot of people. Call those you love and keep them and yours in your prayers. Stay safe and be careful.

    Haven't had my Karve CB out in a little while so I've used the D plate SB the past two days. What a great razor.

    On my face, the CB D plate SB is very similar if not identical to the GC .84 SB in efficiency. I actually ordered an E plate just to bump up the efficiency a notch.

    Between the Karve CB/D, the GC .84 SB and the Rockwell 6s (plate 4) it's hard to pick because they are all fantastic tools.

    Karve CB B open comb with a vintage Gillette Spoiler. Very efficient shave. In a blind test I would never be able to tell that was a decades old blade.
