I was wondering if anyone has an idea of how the aggressiveness/efficiency/blade feel increases from plate to plate. I bought a brass razor with the "C" SB plate and find it to be slightly mild for my taste. I guess my main question is, is there a huge difference from the "C" plate to the "D" place, or should I skip to the "E" plate? I'm not looking for anything super aggressive, I just want something with a little bit more bite or blade feel to it.

I don't have a Karve anymore, but I don't remember there being a lot of blade feel on the D, so you might want to skip to the E.

Yes, I'm familiar with the plate selection and specs. I'm not sure the specs are helpful because I thought the "C" would work. I have other razors with less gap and have some blade exposure that feel more aggressive, so it is hard to say. We'll see.

I'm thinking that as I have the "E" plate in my cart. I plan on buying another of their razors down the line and can get "D: plates if needed. I odn't want to "overdo" it, but by the feel of the "C" plate I'm feeling I may be good with the "E". I'm not sure one step up will be quite enough.

The SB G has a positive blade exposure and gap but it is not overly aggressive. If you don't want to risk it go with the F.
