Occam's ENOCH

The Occams - Enoch is one of 4 SE Razors produced for Classic Shaving. The others are the The Occams V1 and Occams Nano and Occams -Hiram Commander . The Enoch is a 3 piece Razor, whereas the others use an interchangeable plate system which allows the aggression of the Razor to be varied.

The Enoch is a quite neat Razor, and loading a blade is done by loosening the head, so that the blade can be inserted onto the blade retaining pegs. A bit fiddly as the pegs could be more pronounced , but one gets used to it.

I find that Enoch feels good in the hand and easy to manoeuvre , but it took me quite some time to get the cutting angle right. I have a quite a tough "Need To Shave Daily" beard and can get a reasonable Shave with most blades. I have recently discovered that the Kai Mild-Pink blade works best for me. Reckon that those with lighter beards will easily get a good two pass Shave with the Enoch, and its lighter weight of around 80g may appeal to some. Currently on sale at $99 but Postage/ Customs ramps up the price for us in UK, got mine by selling off my King Cobra !! which proved to be a good move as The Enoch delivers a more consistent quality Shave.

Wed 1st July.

Now have had 3 consecutive Shaves in The Enoch with a Kai Captain Titan Mild Pink on board, now the Shaves are consistently excellent. Just goes to show that you really do need to try different blades in a Razor to determine which works best for you.

I really couldn't love the Enoch at first, with its fiddly loading and aggressive stance but once I found a blade which suited my original thoughts quickly changed. Feed it a mild blade and everything clicks in to focus. I feel I can live with its quirky loading and you just have to make sure everything is tight and 'home' with the blade.

Get that far though and one super little razor which is capable of very fine shaves indeed. Incredibly manoeuvrable and very accurate. Just treat with respect and don't rush.

Would you say the OREN is a more suitable SE for a beginner?
Am I right to think it’s not as aggressive as the Enoch?
The Oren only for sale in Black, the original is on sale and IMHO is not that different to the Oren. I find that both Shave very smoothly
and well. The Enoch is more a conventional shape and may well suit you as a newcomer to SE Shaving.

Hi Chris,
What "Mild" blade are you using in The Enoch ? I am liking it with a Kai and now I think I favour it over the Heavier Hiram Commander.

So in your opinion would you say the Occams razors all have same degree of aggressiveness?
I only ask as I tend to prefer mid to mild razors. But, a smooth shave is paramount for me.
