A specific part of my jaw actually. The right side only, from just beyond my chin, for a little over an inch toward the ear, and from just below my jawline, about three fourths of an inch up. I have serious problems with this area, and I cannot figure out what to do about it.
Here are the problems. First, on a very gentle, no against pass, this area remains more stubbly than anywhere else. I cannot seem to get it smooth without going against. Actually, I cannot get it smooth at all, even going against the grain.
I might be able to, more or less, except I can't ever get a smooth pass against the grain. No matter how hard I work at reduction first, when I try to go against, or anywhere close to against, the blade catches, vibrates, stutters, and digs in. I always end up with blood. Just little weepers, not actual cuts, but still. I do dread to think what the digging in part I feel with the blade would mean if I ever try a straight. And as a result of the poor pass, I do not get rid of all the stubble either.
An injector or Gem helps, since the blade is stiffer, but even these suffer from the same problems to a lesser degree.
Any ideas? I have tried stretching in all different directions. I have a lot to work on here, but no matter what I do, this only seems to help a little. A really slippery lather helps some, but only some. I have tried and tried again so many times with slight variations on angle and pressure that I am beginning to give up on getting anywhere there. Attempts at blade buffing = fast irritation.
