It is definitely mild. I have a 15c but rarely use it unless my face is wind or sunburned. At best, I only get a near DFS from it, so it's no good for me. I believe it has negative blade exposure.Perhaps the Merkur 15C is worth a try. You don't hear a lot about that razor but I hear it is mild.
Agree 100%. The Parker OC gives a safe, mild, yet efficient BBS shave even suitable for a beginner.+1 On the Parkers as well since you're looking for a new school razor. The Maggard open comb head is supposedly the same thing, they look similar enough and they have the same number of teeth. Apparently comes from India too, which is where Parkers are produced.
The Maggard head will run you $16 while Parker razors are generally around $30.
I have one and completely agree. But if you want one, act quickly: ATT has discontinued production, and sales are limited to existing inventory. Perhaps Maggard's still has some in stock.ATT M2 is mild, yet very efficient, close comfortable shaves , 2 passes Plus touch up.
This may just be the most bang for buck suggestion so far. Eager to know what OP ends up getting.Another vote for the Razorock Old Type. However, I would buy the SLOC for $15 and then just add the old type head for another $7. Get to try both. But I personally like the old type better.
The Fatip Lo Storto Originale slant, especially when paired with Bolzano and Silver Star blades, is definitely suitable as a daily driver.I enjoy OC razors. I only have 1 OC razor that I consider a daily driver, though. It’s a vintage Hoffritz OC.
I also am a huge fan of Fatip and Schone razors, but can shave with them about two consecutive days before needing to give my skin a break. I tried a Timeless .68 OC a while back and wasn’t crazy about using a razor that still fell like a safety bar razor. I also used the Bronze OC which I liked more, but still wasn’t worthy of being a daily driver.
Curious, what are some nice and mild OC razors that can provide great shaves every day? Preferably new school razor suggestions.
