I just shaved with a newly acquired V2 Occam's Razor.  I can easily see a comparison with the OneBlade, and particularly with the V2 OneBlade.
Both razors hold the blade loosely in their vice, both razors are practically foolproof, and both razors provide a very good shave for a mild razor.
The OneBlade has a pivot; Occam's Razor does not.  The OneBlade uses short-lived FHS-10 blades; Occam's Razor uses long-lived AC-SE blades.
The OneBlade weighs 90 grams; Occam's Razor weighs 49 grams.  The OneBlade costs $399 retail, the Occam's Razor costs $69 retail.
Both razors are weak at shaving the mustache area, but I wear a mustache so that weakness doesn't matter to me.  Both razors are made in China.
I use a Feather AC Pro in my Occam's Razor, and a de-spined Gem in my (V1) OneBlade.  FHS-10 blades are both too weak and too expensive.
So is the Occam's Razor a poor mans OneBlade?  In many ways yes.  To me they both shave very similarly, but YMMV.

From a cost perspective Occam is actually cheaper and I though have not used it I do have experience with SE blades. For my sensitive skin, OB is a killer, expensive though. FHS is a short lived blade but the shaves are amazingly smooth and comfortable.

De-spine a gem blade for my one blade razor. Probably the best razor out there for me.

The Oneblades blade looks to be curved ... or am I seeing things?

Did not know that OneBlade is manufactured in China!?

It does have a curve in the pic above... Is the blade loaded properly?

It's a de-spined Gem blade, and doesn't set as straight as a Feather.  It doesn't affect the shave.  
I still get more and better shaves from a de-spined Gem than from a Feather FHS-10.

Perhaps if I clipped the Gem blade as well as de-spined it it wouldn't smile, but I'm just too lazy.

Thanks for this thread draebeard.  Perhaps I should dig out my Occam V1 and give it serious shot, but I am not sure if I will.  Personally, I prefer the shorter FHS-10 or GEM blades to the AC format, other things being equal.  I also think GEM PTFE blades are as good as any blade ever, and I have often used them in my V2 Genesis (despined and clipped).  But the FHS-10 is also superb for me, although embarrassingly shorter lasting than a GEM.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our razors, but in our technique.
lose for the mustache area, that would be no for me... anyhow they both look quite good... 10/10 on design perspective!
Nice review. Thanks!
