Welp, I received my razor back in perfect shave ready status from Paco (Thanks Man!) and oiled my face, applied a hot towel (I have one of those separate hot water faucets that gets the water super hot), lathered up (BTW first time using my Badger brush - is it supposed to smell like a dead opossum?).
Using my right hand all went fairly well although in retrospect I think my angle was too great. Things went south when I switched to my left hand. I dug the razor into my chin and also cut the left said over my lip. It looked like a Bull Shark attacked someone in the sink. It looked worse than it really was. Another area that gave me trouble was the berm of my chin. I think I need practice, practice, practice.... hopefully with less blood letting.
I have two days of growth since the first shave, so I'm about to head back in and just shave my neck and leave the rest for a few days.
Wish me luck....
