Hey Bogeyman... Sorry, I missed your review. I'd high five you if I could! Fellow beard reducer here! I've been tempted to buy this razor as you may already know.OK, 2nd shave with the "Chick" blade and I used Cyril L. Salter tallow (puck) soap. Fellas, I received a perfect DFS after the first WTG pass and just for giggles I did an XTG quasi pass. Sure, if I take a credit card, cotton ball or a small Pekingese dog and rub ATG I can feel the slightest of nubs. But for many, yours truly included, to go after these with fervent ATG passes and/or multiple touch ups = ingrown hair Hell. I have done as such before with other razors and it's impossible to tell the difference by looking at even kissing distance in the mirror. I hate to employ an old maxim, but shaving is beard reduction and not elimination. For people who aren't "chasing the dragon" of BBS this is a superb modern injector razor.
