A very nice gentleman loan me his Cadet OC head with Muhle Grande handle to try out. I was warned to keep the phone close and have plenty of towels handy. So thinking this was going to be aggressive. I decided to only do a 2 pass shave WTG and XTG. So after I showered I put on some conditioner wipped up lather with Stirling Best Dressed Man soap. I used Gillette 7'O Clock Black for the blade. Faced lathered and started to shave. Within first couple of seconds I knew this was going to be a very close shave. After first pass I almost stopped. I knew I had got close to what i wanted to accomplish, but I lathered up again for across the grain. All I can say is WOW. I had no nicks, weepers or irriation. Had a little razor burn I guess, the aftershave burned for a couple of minutes. I was very impressed with the razor. I did notice that when putting the blade in the razor you had to be sure that the cap did not twist. There seems to be a little play not much. Not sure I really like the Muhle Grande handle it was a little to fat, but I did like the length. Over all best razor I have used so far.

I had a razorock little bastone, which is basically a cadet razor and I feel they are some of the best OC's out there. These and the Fatips are my favorites and I think they shave almost identically.

I did not find it aggressive, I wonder how a Fatip or a Muhle R41 would be.

It's got that black handle -- is that steel?

I feel that the Fatip and Cadet/RazoRock OC's shave almost identically.
