Having used both Hawk V3 Razors I am convinced that despite some talk to the contrary the OC is far more aggressive than the A Plate. There is no doubt that an ultra close finish can be obtained with the OC, but as a Daily Shaver I prefer the comfort of the A plate, with which I get consistently good close finishes without any problems.

Soap Arko Stick
Brush Yaqi 28mm Synthetic
Razor Yaqi DOC Mellon
Blade SilverStar 4th
Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Old Spice Lime
The famous/infamous Arko soap lather is truly remarkable. So slick...
Shave with razor paired with blade was just ok. Quite audible. Not as smooth as when I first try this blade last year. Perhaps the last batches of new blades has spoilt my expectations. 3+1 passes with no issues. Abit uncomfortable going atg on the neck & jawline. Blade will be ditched. Between BBS to DFS result. Icy cold water feels so good and followed by Thayers then Hyaluronic and Old Spice.
