Hello to all. Just wanted to introduce myself. I've recently ditched the cartridges and have only been wetshaving for about 2 weeks.

I'm currently using an Edwin Jagger DE 89BL. Have been trying a few different blades out of a sampler pack. So far Astras seem to work best for me. Haven't tried a Feather yet.

The area under my jaw line closest to my ear lobes are the toughest spots for me to get a close shave. I'm hoping this will get better as my technique improves. My current method is first doing a WTG shave followed by a XTG and then finishing up with an ATG but I end up needing to do a 4th or even 5th pass of varying directions on my neck. Luckily there's been no nicks or razor burn so maybe I'm shaving too light on the neck since I need multiple passes?

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and that I'm looking forward to learning all that I can.

Welcome.... You are correct your technique will improve and you shouldn't need as many passes

As others have mentioned work on your technique. I used a e&j and found out I get a real close shave in two passes with my ATT R2 May want to think about a more aggressive razor.

Welcome to The Shave Nook and enjoy your stay. Smile

The area you describe ("The area under my jaw line closest to my ear lobes are the toughest spots for me to get a close shave.") can be troublesome even for experienced shavers so don't stress about it too much.

Thanks for the support.  It's getting better (or I'm getting better at it).
