Razorock Hawk V3 in stainless steel

Have any gents ever compared RR Hawk v2 with ATT SE1?
ATT SE1 is quite smooth, but it is a bit too heavy for me.
My ATT SE1 has a Kronos handle.
(Hope my memory works.)
I had 2 of ATT SE1. One regular and the other Windsor line. My pick is Hawk V2.
ATT SE1 feels a bit efficient but less smooth. Hawk V2 feels smoother and way more maneuverable thanks to its light weight.

If the se 1 is too heavy, att makes an aluminum se1 that shaves great.

My hawk v2 seems a tad more aggressive than my att aluminum se1.
 
Would you folks recommend a V2 Hawk for a first SE? I am no stranger to DE and Straight shaving but I am looking into trying out an SE for the first time.
 
The Hawk V2 is priced as a good first SE. Depending on your hand-eye coordination, it’s either an awesome razor (for most who try it) or an awesome razor that gives you 12-20 hours BBS plus razor burn because of lack of hand-eye coordination (that’s me!).

You could also scan the auction and knick knack sites for a GEM Micromatic Open Comb and spend less money on the razor and less money on the blades only it may be haunted by a former owner.
 
Haha well I don't need anyone materializing while I'm mid shave haha. I did go ahead and ordered a Hawk V2 and some Feather Pro Guards to try out first so we will see how this goes after it arrives.
