I am happy to announce that BullGoose Shaving is an official retailer of Tradere razors. I have the stainless steel fluted handles in stock and should have the Open Comb razors in stock in 5 to 6 weeks if all goes smoothly.

Hey Phil, have you had a chance to try the OC razor, maybe from a prototype or something, and if so how does it shave?

Yes...I have three shaves in on the OC Prototype. It is a very smooth and efficient shaver but not what I would call aggressive. It is a bit more aggressive than the EJ razors but less aggressive than the Merkur fixed head razors in my opinion (although strangely more efficient). If you were to compare it to the iKon 2nd generation Bulldog, I would say it is a hair less aggressive.

How would you compare it with the iKon H20? That is the only razor I have of that style of head.

There is less weight in the head itself and the handle is longer so the balance is different. The Tradere OC is a bit more aggressive than the H20 but not seriously aggressive. I would say it is less aggressive than a Gillette Norfolk for instance and similar in aggression to the 2nd generation iKon Bulldog (maybe a hair less aggressive).

I haven't had a chance to use a 2nd gen iKon Bulldog, but more aggressive than the H2O is a good thing. I still can't get a great shave with it. But then again, it has been sitting in the back of the rotation for 2 months. Maybe I should give it another try... Oh well, I put myself on the wait list. I guess I will find out in May.
