Essentially, this is a modern version of the frameback.

In prior shaves I've been using Diane or Personna blades which are much akin to GEM single edge blades, just longer and squatter - similar thickness and a similar shave.

Tonight, I used a Feather Cut blade which is the same shape but thinner. The shave is very much like a faux frameback and really quite noisy, which is a great indicator as to angle - the louder it is, the steeper the angle. Learn the noise, the angle stays spot-on.
