Took my El Jefe for a spin today.

I hadn't shave since Sunday so thats 6 days of growth that it mowed down.
Two pass for a BBS.
I could have stopped at one pass for a DFS.
I will have to think about getting Schick P-30 Proline blades.
Still not satisfied with it.
I used a handle that was custom made with it and I felt it was too heavy.
Nice handle but makes the EL Jefe too heavy for me.
The El Jefe head is a lot heavier then the RR aluminum Hawk V1 that I have that I was using the handle with.
I will switch to a wooden one for the next shave.
The blade I used was from Try A Blade and was a Kai-Captain ProTouch MG.
I'm cold water shaving now so everything is done with cold water.
Put my ShaveMac in to soak.
Wet my face and added 4 drops of shave oil.
While everything is soaking I start my shaving soap routine.
I shake out the brush and pour the water off of The Freedberg tin on to the brush like pouring it into a filter.
I then twirl it a few times in the tin to load the brush.
I transfer it to my shave bowl where it becomes the most awesome lather I have ever made.
I brushed the lather on and then take it off with the El Jefe.
I could have stopped with the first pass but it left a few places that needed to be cleaned up.
Second pass did that.
Nice shave but still not happy with it.
No sting with the homemade witch hazel combo I made.
No sting with the Nivea post shave Balm.
A little bit with The Freedberg after shave but quickly goes away.
I'm going to use a wooden handle that I bought previously for it and the same blade for the next shave.
I will flip the blade... I know some do and some don't and this will be the first time for me to flip it.
This has been the best shave yet out of the El Jefe.
Ties with a couple of others for best to date.
I can't imagine how it would be with P-30s in it.
I'm thinking about revisiting my Schick G with the chick blades from japan.
I will have to find the thread that tells you where to get them and how to order them.
I have a custom wood handle on a G that the handle felled apart.
I'm thinking that it would give better results as I don't care for the long AC blades.
