Well, lucky shave #3 for me this AM. May have been the electric kettle that now finds a permanent home in my bathroom,(Received two for Christmas)or the much better lather after re-watching Mantic`s vids, or the corking of my Merkur blades. Not a nick, no irritation on the neck ,and the shave, while not BBS, looks and feels great.
I also mapped my facial hair and switched direction on the neck. ;)
Thanks B&B and Mantic59!
