Well this week, was an interesting one, and I learned some valuable lessons.
Monday, I managed to cut my index finger, reaching into my travel shaving kit for my Merkur Slant. Ouch... first lesson, I need to get a case for that thing.
Tuesday, in my injured state, I attempted an experiment I'd wanted to try for awhile. Digging out my Gilette Fusion I had only used once before my switch to DE about 3 yrs ago and giving it a go for comparison. It was not enjoyable... I was surprised at how much I'd forgotten about how I used to shave.
Thursday, I managed to cut my pinky on my Slant again in the shaving kit. I've never had a problem in 3 years, but evidently when it rains it pours.
And today, I pulled out my old Gillette Fat Boy for a change of pace, randomly set to 6, and I got the nicest shave of the week. Go figure.
I come away from the week wearing bandaids, and glad I have discovered DE shaving, and falling in love with my old Gillettes again.
