Any idea why the 3 dot is so different on the OREN (v2)vs the Occam's (v1) razor? Do you notice a difference with the 2 dot between these razors?

The 2 dots seem identical. Not sure why the 3 dot was so harsh. What’s really weird is when I originally ordered it I ordered the 3 dot only and received all three.

Luke gave everyone who pledged support all three as a perk.  It would be interesting to try the Occam's razor 3 dot head on the OREN razor and see of the results are the same.

Unfortunately I sold my original Occam as the wide blade guard and unusual handle did not suit me

I would try it but I am more of a 1 dot man. I think the 3 dot would be too much for me. I haven't shaved with my gold OREN but the handle seems to be about the same to me as the Occam's razor, just skeletonized. I think I will still grip it much the same way as the Occam's handle. I may change my opinion when my brushed stainless OREN arrives, and I shave with it. I did not find the Occam's handle to be one of my favorites by any means, but it wasn't too objectionable to me.

Day 2 of the 3 dot blade guard. Still trying to get the angle down. This second shave lots better than the first left me with BSS. Will try for a few more shaves.

I had my first shave with the OREN razor yesterday. Shaving under the nose is much easier. And the handle is also better. Luke has been successful on the two items he wished to improve. I will reserve judgement on the shave until I get a few more shaves under my belt. On my first shave I used the 1 dot.

Two shaves now - also my first two shaves with a SE razor. Fairly impressed with handle and ergonomics. 2 dot head seemed milder than expected - could have easily been me being extra careful and poor technique. Overall, happy with the purchase and service.
