I've gotten two DE shaves under my belt with my Edwin Jagger DE89. The first shave was a little rough because I got a little cocky and forgot to go slow and use no pressure so I had a pretty good case of razor burn. This second shave wasn't perfect, but man it sure felt nice. I have a little bleeding but NO skin irritation. I'm very excited about the future. Thank you all for the helpful information shared on this site! I'm also looking to make a couple posts on the Dark Leaf board with me being a pipe and cigar enthusiast.
