Shaves this morning with a Gillette Red Tip that I picked up somewhere that had been re-plated. I’m not sure if it’s better prep and dialing in the soaps I’ve been using or using no pressure this morning, but geez with a great shave. Only one small nick down on my neck, but it was very minor. A two pass BBS with a couple touch ups, but after using he OneBlade exclusively for the past two months I have to admit I need to start using this more often and maybe look into other DEs. Paired It with a GSB and ready to start my work day.

I almost wished you welcome back in the fold... but honestly, as long as you're getting great shaves it don't really matter if you use SE, DE or even carts Tongue

The one major lesson I learned after taking up traditional wetshaving is that good prep-work is alpha and omega - a great shave is built on a good prep, and to me prep-work includes everything you do up until the blade touches the skin - as you seem to have noticed as well.

I keep a fairly large rotation of DE and SE razors, in part to keep my technique sharp... to me at least focusing on a single razor would hone my skill on that single razor, and I'm not sure I could switch to a different one as easily as you seem to have done Smile
