Only have the OC slant and also have an OC mk2 grande. It feels much more smooth and milder than the mk2, yet more efficient, less tugging with a lot less blade feel to me. The grande was a little aggressive more of a special occasion razor, whereas I have the used the slant a lot.
I am new to Fatips, but I’d never choose the safety bar over the open comb. Fatip’s OC design is battle-tested, while the safety bar is a novelty likely introduced to please a larger crowd, especially outside Italy.
I have the open comb version...have no experience with the safety bar version. The only thing I can say is...I'm not someone who has ever bought an open comb razor. My whiskers just don't require an open comb. So buying the open comb version of this slant razor was a serious stretch for me. But I found that it wasn't too aggressive or harsh at all. In fact, it's quite smooth and pleasant to shave with.
