The new Razorock Gamechanger JAWS should be take in consideration.

I also love the Sawtooth comb R41

Well I had the same urge probably prompted by this post or another just like it. I got a nice gillette old type. next a gem micromatic OC. waiting for blades to try the MMOC.
the old type was very efficient for the smooth first shave with obviously more blade feel than the gillette TTO or slim adjustable, then I went on vacation and used my gillette travel tech for the week. getting the rotation set featuring the OC now that I am in my home sweet home.

I have a gillette old type, gem MMOC, and i just had my first shave with the razorock GC .84 OC.  I like the GC the best, very smooth very efficient no issues at all. 

MMOC is a much closer shave and a new shaving system for me so for now not as smooth and at times aggressive. the MMOC will take a layer or two of skin with a mental lapse or too many passes. 

the old type gives a smooth shave but the razor i have has some blade alignment issues and can be a bit aggressive so daydreaming or trying too hard for a BBS can leave me a bit raw.

I got a new long comb and a RazoRock SLOC yesterday. Tried the SLOC last night it was a little ruff. I might of had to many variables. Coats cream and gillette ruby blade.

How do y’all like the gillette new long comb or the SLOC?

I've had a bunch (Wolfman, Timeless, ATT R2, Muhle R41, New and Old type Gillettes) and the Timeless .95 is my favorite. Beautifully designed both aesthetically and in terms of effectiveness, it looks great and holds the blade in an excellent rigid grip. The Timeless is smooth and very efficient, but also expensive. I also have the ATT SE2, one of the few open comb razors using the Artist Club type blades. That one is very efficient, but can bite. It takes a very light touch and a lot of skill to master, but I find the shaves rewarding.

Look at a Timeless Stainless Steel OC... Take note of the detailed, intricate machining on the razor head. I haven’t seen anything else like it. A 95 OC is very smooth and very aggressive at the same time.

The New Improved as offered on the Tuckaway is my vote. I also like Karve's offering, they dialed in a nice open comb. Sorry no time to resize

I have two OC safety razors, a Merkur 15C and a West Coast Shaving open comb head combined with a WCS handle.  They both were reasonably priced (the Merkur about $27 and the WCS combo about $17) and deliver mild shaves, but both closer than the 4 closed comb razors I use. With an OC razor, you get more sound feedback as you shave than with most CC razors, which I like. I would highly recommend both and don't really have a preference.  I only shave every other day and don't have sensitive skin, so, as the saying goes, your results may vary.

Another vote for Timeless. Both gaps are great as are the TI and SS versions also. Smooth and efficient.
