As much as I love the Black Hawk SE razor, I did find 2 things wrong with it that I did not like and that is now fixed or at least it will be when they arrive. The Feather Artist Club blades are too harsh in this specific razor due to the amount of blade exposure it has. Other people who have other SE razors such as the Mongoose and General have informed me that the Feather Artist Club blades are great in those razors. So I went to Maggard Razors and I ordered some Kai Captain Titan Mild SE blades for my Black Hawk razor:
Another problem I had with the Hawk was the weight. Even though I tend to like light weight razors, this one here can use some extra weight which is now taken care of. My Hawk will be gaining a whopping 7.5 ounces and the color will match thanks to West Coast Shaving Supplies and their Midnight Collection Series stainless steel handle. Which is only $18.95.

It's across the entire website:
Now that I've finally accomplished having not only an SE razor that's been years in the making, I've also finally got to trick a razor out which I've also been wanting to do for years. And for those wondering, the Feather Artist Club lights do NOT work in ANY of the SE razors due to the lack of blade exposure that those blades have. And yes, I did try the Feather Artist Club Proguards which gave me the exact same results in the Hawk SE razor as the Feather Professional blades did. Which was a blood bath and harsh uncomfortable post shave feel. The guard on those blades is totally useless in my humble opinion.
