Well, I tried it, and I like it. Might be bitten by RAD again...sheesh.
I am thinking of selling my Mühle Rocca, and my Schick Krona, and return to the "one razor" lifestyle with a Fatip.
My Blackland Blackbird is going to be hard to beat. I’ve been using it exclusively for the past 2 weeks, and it keeps impressing me. As a daily driver, or with a day or 2 of growth, the efficiency and comfort of this razor is amazing.
Follow that, Rockwell 6C, birth year Gillette Super Adjustable
OneBlade Genesis V2
Rex Ambassador @ setting #3
That was yesterday - today may be different. On occasion the Rex is No.1 and sometimes the OneBlade. Depends on the day. They are all fine as frog's hair and just as smooth. The OneBlade isn't as efficient as the other two but it never ever has any irritation or blood letting. The Paradigm is very smooth but just a tick less efficient as the Rex. The Rex is very versatile due to its adjustability and dialing it up produces the closest shaves but also the likelihood of vampire bait. So I leave it set at #3 and only dial it up to #4 when I want more aggression around my jaw line and chin.
If you catch a little RAD about these SE Razors, the really good thing about them, is if your patient, you can find truly nice ones, for around $30/35 and even less, if you get lucky. I highly recommend an E2 for a bit more aggressiveness, but not crazy and an L1, just because they shave so well! Of course eBay is the biggest fishing pool, but Etsy usually has a good selection as well.
But which blade do you prefer in the Micromatic?!
06 Single Ring / 1930 NEW SC
Different but two of my favorites in my rotation
I like the Gem Stainless blades from Connaught Shaving.
Just ordered myself another 20!

Gillette ThickCap Old Type with the ball end handle (the hollow tube with pressed in neck and ball fittings). I have two, and would keep only those if I had to let go of every other razor I own.
my new deluxe is climbing the ladder rapidly..
