I like the SE safety's but I just can't get as smooth of a shave with them. Still trying out different things. Is it because the blades are thicker ? I've looked at the bevel with a jeweler loop and its very rough compared to the straight razor ? The DE's are the most comfortable so far.

I'm having a hard time getting any shave to come close to the Cobras.

I'm going to try the King Cobra with the lightest Ti Handle Jurgen makes and try to pre strop the blade. I'm trying to get comfort and close. The best shave I've had is a Tradere shimmed. Not one nick and absolutely BBS ! It's a gen 2 by the way
