Hi Chris,Mike, hi - I am reasonably sure that I am on the no 2 plate - as I have not changed the head - will look again.
My first run outs with the Occam was with the Feather AC - which for me is possibly a better blade in the Occam compared with the Kai (Pink). I enjoy shaving with the Kai's, with my other SE razors (General SS, ATT SE1, General Alu) that is my go to blade. Using the Kai on this rotation was experimental.
I have ordered some Feather Pro Guards to try with the Occam. I can see me using Feather blades almost exclusively in the Occam.
Today's shave, also with the Occam and the Kai (Pink) was good, did not feel as smooth as with the Feather. Yesterday's shave felt weird, the razor was almost so good it felt functional, if that makes sense?
All the best,
If you have not changed the head it is on 2 [ marked by dots]. I understand what you mean by calling it functional, it does not have the kerb appeal of other Razors -" but it do Shave good".
I shall try a Schick Proline next, before trying a No 3 plate. Ideally I do not want to get more AC Blades like the Pro Guard just to use Plate 3. I am finding that on 2 the Occams is clearing my quite heavy beard with ease. I would really like to hear
the views of any Vector/Paradigm users who have also tried the Occams,
Have a Good Weekend, we are promised some Sun . Mike B
