2nd shave this morning with the combination Kai Pro-Touch + General: though I am very happy with this combination, I could use a bit more aggressiveness... what blades should I try next? Feather Pro? Kai Captain?

I've just tried Feather Soft Guard, and I find It a little more aggressive. IMHO Kai Protouch is best injectorpro, as balance as duration. If you like feeling the blade, for sure Feather Super is the answer. That is 1/6 longer, and It feels.

I agree with spidey9 concerning the Asylum Rx. It is an aggressive, but smooth and efficient razor. Ever wanted to try a straight but just couldn't pull the trigger on trying one? The Rx is your answer. Shaves like a straight, but with the convenience of a handle. I've only used Kai AC style blades with mine, and nothing but excellent shaves. It's my daily driver. Has great weight and balance in the hands. Did I mention it's all S/S? Not cheap, and not for the timid shaver because it will bite if your careless. Once mastered, SHAVE NIRVANA!!!!!
Like one of the other posters I was away from the world of "wet shaving" for several years. When I left there was only one SE taking the Artist Club Blades. As a fan of SE shaving I was very interested in it but alas the price of entry was just too high.
Now serveral years later I find a wealth of choices at a vareity of price points. So I put my foot in the water, starting offf with one of the RR Hawk models. Added a heavier handle from WestCoadt Shaving and am in shaving bliss. So much so that I have brass General on the way and hope to snag a Stainless Steel Hawk, if and when they become available again.
I really think that the Artist Club Blade format is the wave of the furture for wet shaving saftey razors.
