The day has finally arrived and I got the email from Wolfman Razors! I've spent all day (literally) reading the threads trying to educate myself and they have been of great help. I decided to go with the WR2 1.25, with the Darwin handle, but I'm undecided on the solid guard bar or open comb. A lot of the articles do not state if they are referring to an OC or SB. So I assume they are referring to the SB. I tend to prefer open combs, but I hold no bias towards the SB. I can handle the usual suspect when it comes to aggressive razors like the R41, Blackbird OC, Timeless .095 OC, GC .084 OC, Gillette 1934, etc. I know as usual YMMV, but I was hoping your input can help me make an informed decision. I have read there is no real difference between the SB or OC. I was wondering if that is true. Like most, I enjoy a smooth shaving razor. Thanks in advance for your input!
