I haven't experienced this problem either.  Could it be an imperfection in the blades or the razor?  Hmmm, if you have the same issue with the Vector then I'm thinking the blades are the problem.  Let us know what you find out.

yep, the blades for sure ... as I posted, 2-3 blades in each pack fit without requiring any alteration - for the others, just dremeled one slot to make it a bit wider and the blades then fit fine, and seem to work. Was inconvenient, but probably a bad batch of blades....

It turned out the holes in the blade were not out far enough to go over the guides. So I tried the blade in my Vector - same problem. Then I took a new blade from the other package - same problem. Has anyone experienced this? Thanks!

Yeah, i’ve recently had the same issue. Bit annoying, i’ will have to enlarge the holes slightly

Could anyone compare the Paradigm SE razor with a RazoRock SS Hawk? I've been using a Hawk for over a year now but have a Paradigm SE on the way and I'm curious how they'll compare.

Just a quick thread revival. Pulled out the Paradigm Ti SE for this mornings shave. A very smooth and comfortable shave was had. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Schick, Kai and Feather Pro's work nicely in the Ti SE providing comfortable daily shaves without much issue. But, the Feather Pro Super was meant for this razor. No harsh or rough feeling from this blade installed in the Ti SE. It tames it nicely while the Pro Super gives it just that right amount of blade feel and cutting prowess that is magnificent. What I have really noticed is that this razor and blade combo working in the ATG pass. As effective as any other blade/razor combo I've used regardless of blade format. Just works flawlessly on the against the grain pass with supreme comfort and efficiency. Very well designed and engineered with precise machining tolerances that rank with some of the best out there. Though the handle is love/hate, I've learned to deal and accept it as it really isn't uncomfortable to hold as it exhibits excellent balance and tactile feel. Blade insertion/removal is brutally easy and care of the razor is even easier. 

A superb performer all around. Nitpicking? Perhaps was the entry price at nearly $400 but, that is always subjective to many. The majority will say "no razor is worth that kind of $$$" while a select few would chime in by saying "worth every penny spent". I king of agree with the first group as I thought $200 was already outrageous for a shave tool. Curiosity in the end got the best of me though. Yep, as the minority who've tried this razor have said "totally worth it", I have to agree. With todays prices of uber niche razors and how it seems that prices are slowly escalating, sometime in the near future the Paradigm Ti SE might be considered a bargain....

Time will tell. In the meantime, it's a true pleasure to use....
