Shaved with a single edge tonight, my newly acquire GEM push button.. which btw looks awesome after I cleaned it up! Just a few barely-can-see them scratches on the head, other than that, mint! Loaded with a Treet SE blade.
A little over 2 months now shaving with a DE and not having gotten the first cut, nick weeper, burn or bump, I was so disgusted with this SE shave. My face hurt and sustained not 1, not 2 but 3 cuts... and I had several bumps on the neck appear, some of them looking like the tops were sliced right off, to go along with the razor burn. Needless to say, my neck is looking a fright and my face is covered in white styptic pencil residue! Not a happy camper at all! I finally had to finish with my DE and even that was painful due to the aforementioned butchering.
Now. I'm willing to chalk it up to being inexperienced with SEs. But to my credit, I did put the head flat against my face and neck as you're supposed to do. I'm also willing to chalk it up to maybe Treet blades suck. And hence I'll be trying it once more with a Pella blade as soon as my sampler arrives thanks to a very generous B&B member, DunEdinRanger. But after this fiasco, I'm going to have to talk myself into this second try. Somehow I think I'll be offering up a very nice GEM Pushbutton for sale soon.
