How much blade feel does the black bird have? Too much fou a daily driver? Want to get one but don't know enough about it's aggressiveness.

We have a long thread on the Blackbird, and you'll probably find useful comments there.

I'm also interested in picking up a new high end SS razor and would like to know other people's opinions. Thanks for asking Gravity.

What I really want to know is how does it compare to ATT and Timeless.

It has a lot of blade feel, to me, but I don't necessarily think that rules it out as a daily driver.  Blade feel does not automatically equal irritation. 

Any razor that doesn't cause irritation can be used for daily shaving, in my opinion. 

So, long story short:  it has quite a bit of blade feel but I did not find the shave irritating.

I think the Blackbird OC is a little more efficient than an ATT R2. They are both blade forward designs. The Blackbird head design makes it a little easier to get up under the nose. I enjoy using both razors.
