Sometimes one makes rather out of character purchases. I am not a fan of the looks of the One Blade Razor, yet I purchased the Occams V2 - perhaps because it takes AC blades which I like. Blade loading is very easy, and the blade is lightly held on two lugs, not locked down like other Razors, some say it floats !! I do not notice.
It comes with 3 interchangeable plates, which are secured by screws [Phillips No1 head]. The One fitted is a No2 - medium aggressive. I have used it with Feather Pro/Schick Proline blades, and find it to be extremely smooth and comfortable and delivers ultra close Shaves with no problems. Shave Time to get this finish is quite long as Plate 2 is really quite mild. Despite its odd looks,the Spud Peeler type handle offers a range of grips, and is really good for working ATG and around the neck.
I have recently changed the plate to a No3 [ Aggressive], done very easily too. The supplier recommends use of a guarded blade, but I have used a Kai CTM-Pink. There is lots of blade feel on this setting, and my quite strong beard disappears very quickly, leaving me with a Top Class finish.
Despite its looks, I am finding that this razor actually Shaves as well if not better than most of the AC/SE Razors that I have used. For those who do not like the heft of some S/S AC/SE this is a good alternative, and IMHO much better than the aluminium models.
I've used this and Hawk V2. Occam shaves much smoother and closer. Of all 4 AC razors I've shaved with, Occam shaves smoothest. (the other razors are Hawk v2, Above the Tie SE1, Colonial general Aluminum.)

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
