Once I learned how to shave, I never tried shaving without water on my skin, and soaked into my whiskers, but the mortgage payments had to be paid, whether anyone would hire me for things I had experience in or not, so that added up to two lousy jobs to keep the bills covered, and rushed shaves because there never was enough time. I could do a fast one-pass shave with a Sensor that didn't feel good enough to me, didn't satisfy my own standards, but got me in and out of the bathroom in a minimum time.
Once in that bad habit, the rush to finish and low quality shave that went with it, I just kept on, even if the deed was finally free and clear, but I never had another decent-paying job, that's a fact. I was using Edge Gel, skipping the aftershave, and my shaves were a necessary chore. Were they "Wet" shaves? Yes. When the situation dawned on me that a rushed shave hadn't been a necessary part of grooming for several years, THEN I was taking my time, getting some DFS results with leftover shave creams, and decided to look for a backup Sensor handle.
None was to be found on the local stores' shelves. Internet searches led here; more thorough searching at home led to a couple of backup Sensors, a couple of backup adjustable DEs, a veritable S***load of backup Atras, aftershaves, soaps, one shave mug puck (VDH), etc. etc.
