I have been unable to find a thread that compares different Wolfman blade gaps, specifically in a SB.  For those that have several Wolfmans with different blade gaps, what are your thoughts?  Thanks for sharing your experience.

Those that have several Wolfmans are relatively sparse, I presume. I have a .74mm blade gap open comb, but wish it were a .86. I'm an aggressive razor fan, and the .74 just doesn't quite have the punch I enjoy.

I only tested Standard 0,61 and 0,67. I have two Wolfman (SB and OC) and both are 0,67. For me is very smooth and comfortable but efficient.

I have standard medium .61 SB & OC, and .74 in a DC. The .61 is plenty good. The .74 is not 'better', for me, just different. In the Timeless I have .68 SB and .95 OC. The .68 is not as easy to find the angle as is the Wolfman .61, but it is also plenty good when you do find it. The .95 is almost too much of a good thing. I had written to them asking about a compromise blade gap of something like 80mm but never got a reply. 

After over 50 years of shaving I've discovered through razors like the AS-D2, the Ikon X3 slant, with very little blade gap, that blade gap is not as important as technique. At least with my particular beard. YMMV.

Thanks for the replies thus far.  I completely agree JimmyH that blade gap as a comparison between different razors is of little value since there are other equally (if not more) important elements in how a razor shaves.  Where I believe looking at different gaps becomes more significant is when that is the only variable in the equation such as with a Wolfman SB where everything else is constant.  

I have two Wolfman SBs, a .61 and a .67.  The .67 is slightly more efficient without any increase in harshness and surprising (to me) is actually a better shave for me without any irritation.  I am now curious about a .74 and beyond.
