Well this morning I went along with my normal way and had the worst shave I have done yet. I did add a step of washing my face in the shower before shaving and I used a new USA persona blade. I have been using the us persona blades for about a week and have yet to cut myself like I did today. I was unable to finish shaving because I had a lot of scraps all over my face. Ohh well guess I will wait a couple days and check out this blade. Not sure exactly what to look for but if I see anything out of the norm I will throw the blade away.
