This is my first time using Wolfman WR1 .48dc so far I been getting amazing shaves from either side sb/oc both are super smooth, blade plays a key part too as well I had been using quite often my vintage Astra Superior Blue in it amazing blade and these were made in Czech Republic quality blades from the past!!

Overall I shaved with it few times and been testing it agianst my Wolfman WR1 .61 as their “standard” Gap and have to say they both shave smooth and if I had to choose in between .48 Dc or .61sb I’ll say .48dc for everyday Shaver…not saying .61 doesn’t shave good it’s amazing shaver reminds me of CG Gen1 Lvl1 plate nice and smooth..

If anyone thinking getting .48dc I would highly suggest it now YMMV but as daily shaver with sensitive skin prone to nicks and cuts this one is Winner to me in my view and opinion..

Wolfman over Karve?? Well this is my view and opinion they are both made exceptionally Well and high quality razors!!

Now since my Karve was first razor and my mother bought me and knowing how they made and machining Karve SS razors are not easy that’s for sure and Chris who makes them he does meticulous Job on them hands down..

If I can put both on #1 Place I would for that reason I’ll have my #1 Karve Followed by Wolfman and CG!


Hope that answers the Question!

Alan, what differences have you noticed between the OC and the SB side?

I just acquired the WR1 0.48 SB that was recently on BST (Thanks Justin).  I agree with Alan that this is a very smooth razor head.  What was surprising was just how efficient it was.  You can get just as good a three pass BBS with this head as with a WR1 0.95 OC, abet with a completely different on face experience. The 0.48 does not have a lot of blade feel but does have sufficient blade noise to let you know when the angel is right for cutting.  It is also much more comfortable to use buffing techniques on problem spots with the 0.48 gap than with any of the other, positive exposure, WR1 gaps.  This is a great everyday razor and if you get a chance to try one, you should.

Your dead on everything said, I get 3 passes with it and I’m done it’s so efficient and forgiving Happy2 I really really enjoy it quite a lot actually…didn’t make mistake on this so far lol…

I have very sensitive skin and prone to irration on my neck area quite a lot not with .48 at all and my .61 too as well while we are at it..

I highly suggest WR1 .48dc but YMMV…

The .48 is a very underated gap IMO
Frog1956 I'm the original owner of your new razor. I currently own .61, .67 and .74 gaps but none of them compete with the .48 for smoothness and you are right, for buffing it is unmatched. I'm going to be on the lookout for a brushed .48 in the future. I like both mild and efficient razors, I use Micromatics and Featherweights - I can't say I prefer one over the other.
