The New is indeed a surprisingly smooth shaver and very much designed for the kind of shaving you just did. Now, doesn't it feel a lot better? Beards! Huh!
The majority of my razors are on the milder side of things, but it's good to have a few options for the days to mow down a few more days of growth and I can see the New OC being my razor of choice for those days.
It's great to have the beard off my face!
