I'm thinking about getting the aggression increased on my Wolfman. For those of you that have had it done, did you get it increased one notch or two? How much of a difference did it make in efficiency?

I love the WR! indication under the baseplate. I could easily decide just because of this.

I was originally thinking about ordering one with a reduced gap, so hopefully, this will be a helpful thread to those in waiting.

That is just the designation that I chose. James will machine any symbol you would like on the baseplate

This is good to know.

So, is the razor pretty mild, to begin with?

I have owned both and I settled on the increased blade gap as my daily driver. Speaking in relative terms, the aggression is somewhere between an ATT R1 and H1, but smoother and more comfortable. I never really feel like I can cut myself with it.

I don't chase BBS but I can get pretty close with 2 passes from the Wolfman.

I would definitely say yes. The stock blade gap was very comfortable but not as efficient as I liked, so I opted to keep the more aggressive head.

You just sold me on getting the increase. From what I've read, in between R and H plates would be my sweet spot for daily use.

The standard gap is perfect for me. Any more aggressive and you are getting greedy. Cool

Awesome. James will also alter your blade gap after the fact if necessary.

So, you guys only get the razor altered, because James offers to do so? Or are most of you just eager to customize razors for your collection?

Speaking only for myself, I tend to favor aggressive razors. The standard gap is great but it didn't leave my neck as close as I would like. I had read about the increased blade gap before my turn was up and I decided to order both to try to figure out which one I preferred.

I'm still getting used to it, but I would say the standard gap is about the same efficiency as my Above The Tie M2, maybe even a little less. It does do a better job in my trouble spots though. My opinion on the efficiency might change after more time with it. I've only shaved it 4 times.

That's still enough time to judge.

That does not mirror my experience at all...not even close. Funny how YMMV always comes into play.

Do you find that you can get a BBS shave in two passes with the standard gap? My routine is two so I can only get BBS with more aggressive razors.

I would compare the standard gap face feel similar to the ATT M plate, but the efficiency is closer to the R plate.
