Even though I have 'decided' I am much more of a DE razor guy I've kept my 7-8 SE razors and yesterday I ended up feeling like shaving with the OCMM and I have to say it really is a fantastic little razor.

The OC Micromatic is probably my favorite of all the SE razors I've tried. It gives a very close shave in two passes.

Even though I'm probably more of a DE shaver I gotta hand it to the OCMM - it's one SE razor I know I will hold on to and use from time to time.

Have yet to try an MMOC but want to. Mostly I shave with a Gem Flying Wing but like the Featherweight to.

The ocmm is the epitome of a smooth and effective SE razor. A winner for sure!

Good to hear and I think the OCMM is one of the nicest SEs around. Too bad for me that my skin doesn't get on well with the blades. Blush

It is basically a shavette, IMO.
The safety comb is more for show...

It's a great razor... if you watch Mr. Guy's youtube video on it, you can get a VERY close shave without cutting yourself up

I used it again this morning.
For some reason it feels more 'stiff'...in lack of better words...than my DE razors. Maybe it's because of the blade that is a bit thicker than the DE blades?

In a way I'm imagining that this is what straight razor shaving may be like... Smile

Well, yes the blade has zero flex used normally.

I'd like to hear from a str8 razor user to know if it's similar.

That would be interesting!

Straight razors don't really flex, save for an extra hollow grind (can't tell, have not tried).
They are not as sharp as machined blades so they are more forgiving, but when in good order they are plenty sharp for shaving.
You take full control of the angle and skin stretching, a safety razor ''does that'' for you.

The OCMM has such a huge blade gap, which renders the safety comb almost useless, it is almost like shaving with a shavette, but you have less control over the angle due to the shape of the head. For me it is pointless.
