Well I will eat my previous words. Good old humble pie. Kinda funny when you find out your problem is something as simple as blade angle. Made it as shallow as possible and bang! Had a helluva shave this morning, and also my fastest to date.
My tools of attack this morning were as follows:
H. Boker Red Injun 101
MW Lily of the Valley
26mm 2 band Thater
WH, Floid Blue, and some Proraso cream to finish.
Damn nice smooth shave. I have a couple of small spots of irritation, but that is from trying too hard to get a spot clean. So smooth and pleasurable. 3 passes WTG, XTG , and ATG. I had all my gear cleaned in a little over 30 minuets. That is a great bump in time for me!
