Finish: Thayer's Rose Witch Hazel, Aqua Shave

This was my first shave with this razor. So far, it is my favorite SE. It's as effective as a Gem 1912, but seems easier on my face.

I wasn't really happy with this blade yesterday and even less so this morning, may try another blade in this razor tomorrow and then another of these blades with a different razor before I decide whether to use any more of the two tucks I have accumulated.

I skipped my face shave today (so didn't use the EJ89L) but did a head shave w/ my Lord Premium L6 with a Astra SP blade.

Merkur barber pole and a feather. Due to it being the first shave with said razor, coupled with the weight of it, trying to get a better angle on my first xtg pass, I sliced a piece of the tragus (little nub part of the ear). It was scary, and quite humbling....

It's not the blade, it's not the soap, it's not the Moon in Venus. It's pressure. Maybe angle, but mostly pressure.
