The below post explains it perfectly.
On the ATT Windsor, the blade gap is 0.90mm and the amount of blade that is showing (i.e. Sticking out past the top cap) is just 1mm.
This gives the blade incredible rigidity and this translates to a more comfortable shave.
I don't understand why all...
That's not exactly true either, sorry to say.
I have used MWF for over a decade (in a large rotation) and I don't soak the puck, nor bloom it prior to use.
I keep it as dry as possible.
I load for 20 seconds and add water as I go. Never had an issue.
I clean my razors once every few months.
I never disassemble after each shave.
After a clean, I apply one drop of silicone lubricant to the thread since I don't clean my razors often and want to protect the thread from potential damage.
I don't baby my stuff at all so thought I should take...

I'm pointing out that blade "exposure" of the Karve F is 0.22mm, not blade "reveal"...which is 1.5mm of the ATT.

When did you get yours?

It's the most amazing bath soap I've ever used so I ended up using the two halves up as best I could.
I consider "low blade feel" doesn't relate to how mild a razor is.
Like the blue tip or feather ASD2 or tech etc are mild and by default low blade feel.
What I consider more pertinent is a razor that is designed to be efficient, yet smooth...
I.e. Low blade flex/chatter.
The Karve D plate is...
