Wow! This was my first open comb shave and it was amazing. I used my newly acquired RazoRock Little Bastone and I was very impressed. Shave was a little rough but probably from where I am not accustomed to a blade that close to my face. If anyone hasn't tried an open comb and are curious, I highly recommend the Little Bastone. Not a bad investment for $20.

I find that mine is basically completely intolerant of added pressure.
At this point, thankfully, I only nick myself in the same place I've *always* nicked myself, including with a cartridge.

The Merkur OC head is my favorite DE razor. It is a mild head, but I can get a DFS shave or better and virtually no irritation. The Gillette Old Type head is very similar in performance. I have 2 Merkur heads on non-Merkur handles (a Weber Bulldog and an EJ Plaza handle). They look good and are a joy to shave with.
