YMMV. Much smoother and much more efficient than my DE89 (for me).I just had a shave with mine today for the first time. Good price with that bulldog handle that’s for sure. Interesting concept, but it’s not better to me than my Muhle R89 one shave in. I will give it a few more go’s before I make a final assessment.
I have had a SLOC for some time and got PAA DOC Stainless Steel when they recently became available again.I use the PAA DOC with Feather blades and find that the combination provides a smooth and close shave without irritation.
Have a SLOC on the way and am looking forward to comparing the two.
They are both quite good.I have had a SLOC for some time and got PAA DOC Stainless Steel when they recently became available again.
Many shaves with the SLOC and 3 with the PAA DOC SS using Feather and Astra SP blades.
Both give very close excellent shaves. I have not used the "adjustable" feature of loosening a 1/4 turn on the PAA DOC SS as I have not found a need to make it more aggressive with my particular face.
The PAA DOC SS has a large and heavy handle and its fit and finish is excellent.
The only drawback, if that term can be used, is that I find the PAA DOC SS is too scratchy. For me the comb fins provide too sharp a feel on the passes.
I have tried to smooth out the edges ever so slightly by rubbing toothpaste across the edges but that doesn't seem to make a difference.
Both razors are great and the PAA is stainless but my personal preference between the two is the less expensive Razorock SLOC.
I don't have both but at one time I was interested in a Futur. I've read on this site the Futur is an aggressive adjustable razor even at it's mildest setting. Also the size of the head is large. Which makes maneuvering the razor is tight spot tricky, like under your nose.Would anyone be able to comment on how the SLOC compares to the Merkur Futur? I'm in the market for a razor that is milder than my Futur but about as efficient as the Futur at setting 1. I was planning on buying either the GC Jaws or OC but they're at least $40 more expensive than the SLOC.

Yes, now I see that. The PAA DOC does have a much greater curve than the SLOC.If you compare the heads side by side, they appear to hold the blade at different angles.
