First shave with a NEW...the good and the bad...
I bought a nice, cased gold-plated NEW this past summer from an antique store, and it has been sitting around ever since, while I shaved with a Slim.
Well, last night I took it out of its case and stuck a blade in it, and I shaved with this morning. This was my first time ever shaving with an open-comb razor.
First, a question: How do you make sure the blade is straight when you put it into the razor?
Now, the good: Wow. This thing just glides over the face. No tugging at all. It's kind of the anti-Fusion. Felt really smooth and gentle.
The bad: It didn't cut off anywhere near as much stubble as my Slim. After 2 passes I still had quite a bit of stubble left. Ultimately I had to finish the rough spots on the neck/chin with my Atra, because I feel like I could've done 4-5 passes and still had some left. Is this an angle issue, or is the razor really that mild?
Anyway, thanks for reading. Any help/thoughts are appreciated.
