Definitely the OC Deluxe, but I can't decided which one.
The current model does provide me with a better shave, but I prefer the high gloss finish on the older model.

The current OC is smoother and more effective for me, than the 2nd generation. There feels like there is more glide on the current model and the razor feels more finished, albeit I'm not a huge fan of the matt appearance.

I wouldn't necessarily call either very aggressive, perhaps moderately so. My Joris is more aggressive than both models. The current feels like it gives a closer shave than the previous, but with more comfort. It is almost like comparing Joris and Fatip in that they are quite similar with the Joris providing a more refined experience most likely as a result in finish differences.

I'm only one shave in however (as I only received the current version today) and will no doubt have further and more detailed observations with consecutive shaves.

Thank-you gentlemen.

I think a gold plated OC deluxe head needs to be mounted on that gold tech style handle!!!

Thank-you Ravi. It was the arrival of my latest iKon (OC Deluxe) that inspired me to share my collection.

An iKon slant would be fantastic!

Very nice collection.. I have almost all of those, plus a handful of early ikons as well. I have an un-numbered prototype from the very first production run, and #3 of 7 samples of a spindled long handle that never made it to production. Both are crazy aggressive. Have a handful of OC Deluxe Gen II's, all with early SN's.. 11, 12 & 14, some in matte some in polished. All great shavers.

The OSS is the only one in rotation. Haven't added the 2012's yet
