Blackland SE Razor AKA Vector

#4
Second shave with the Blackland Vector this morning paired with a Schick Proline , a superb shave was the outcome.
The Vector provides a mild shave but is very efficient and with it's slimmed down head it's great for maneuvering around the face,perfect for shaving wtg under the nose.
No weepers or any irritation.
It's only my second shave with the Vector and it's looking like this will be my favourite SE razor. ....Yes it's that good !!!!.

Thanks for sharing your experience with the Blackland Vector. Sounds very good indeed.

Do you happen to know how it compares to the Colonial General? That's my preferred SE to date and curious how it stacks up vs. the Vector.

Thanks for that. Have you any experience of the Razorock Hawk? If so, how would you compare them.

Thanks.

The SS General is a very good shaver for me too ,along with the ATT SE1 both have provided me with great shaves.The General and the Hawk (V2 ) have more blade exposure. The Vector feels milder than the General and provides me with a very comfortable shave but it's super efficient .I also prefer the design of the Vectors slimmed down head,it's well balanced and feels nice in the hand.
I haven't used the Hawk for quite some time although I enjoy the shave when I do,it's mostly used as a travel razor.

Here are some side by side pics

As to the Hawk and the General I actually covered a head to head in one of my past SOTD's. If you can read between my usual waffle I think you can get the gist.

I need to try more SE's but I must say the General is a very class act. The Hawk I find too light and the handle is absolute junk but not to be damning it does turn in a sterling performance at its price. The General though just eludes authority and confidence and sits on a different cloud.

I do see me trying the ATT offering at some point and curiosity may get the better of me in the form of the Oneblade Genesis
