I have been comparing the AS-D2 and Wolfman DC, trying to keep the variables the same.

New Feather blade in each, same prep. Used each blade 3 times and gone.

Both razors are very comfortable to use. I prefer the weight and diameter of the Wolfman handle, and it seems to be a little easier to buff my harder spots, such as the Adam's apple area and underneath the hinges of the jaw. Love them both and it is fun to try to detect just where the differences and similarities are.

One thing I noticed when removing the used blades. I just flush out after each shave with the razor still snugged down, under a stream of hot water from the faucet. The blade in the Wolfman was spotless when I removed it, but there was some grunge still on the AS-D2 blade.

The Wolfman is simply a great design.

That's because the AS-D2 holds the blade tighter and more securely then any razor I am familiar with. No "flow through" space.

Both great razors, both mild for me, the Feather is the mildest of the two and does require one more pass to obtain the same result and the Wolfman has a greater range of angle I can use.

Your logic is off.  If there was no "flow through" there would be no gunk/grunge under AS-D2 either.  The reason the Wolfman blade remains clean is what you describe, the fit and finish is so tight there is no flow through space for gunk to get in between the blade and razor, so only the exterior needs to be washed off.

I see your point, thank you.

I like both, but they are two completely different monsters IMHO.

Yea. As much as I love my as-d2 I find it not as efficient as my wolfman. 

The asd2 is also so mild that I think I'm not shaveing and end up pressing down to get a more aggressive feel and, well that goes as expected: razor burn.

That's what I was trying to describe. If I don't go over difficult areas time after time with the AS-D2, I get done and still feel stubble.

I used to fight the difficult areas many moons ago, I don't anymore.  Just because I feel it doesn't mean people can see it, and a tomato face is never appealing IMHO.  I take every shave for what I can get out of it, forcing the issue only causes irritation and a very unpleasant shaving experience.
