Tales From The Dark Side :)

I'm not sure I would contemplate an ATG first pass on 7 days' growth. Ever thought of using a beard trimmer to trim down the growth, then going WTG and XTG - and maybe stopping there? And dropping down to 2 blade carts, not 3?
I did use to use a beard trimmer, it leaves a nasty mess in the basin. I much prefer the injector, it is designed to go ATG. There is a 1930's instruction booklet on this site. I am very happy using a Profile Fixed or Pivot, just as I am a Feather AC. If I did fewer passes, I would still feel stubble. I enjoy a BBS shave, I just can't have one every day.

Did you just say Pivot??? Are you saying you have a floating head pivot injector?

Thanks, but whilst I'm not exactly a tree hugger, I despise the thought of using a plastic disposable razor a couple of times then binning it.
When I used disposables I wanted to bin them after first use, and if they were cheap enough I did. It felt wrong and unhygenic to reuse a disposable plastic razor that always clogged with some amount of hair, soap and skin in its crevasses regardless how well I cleaned it. And the whole aesthetics of the aloe strip deteriorating... ugh.

Good riddance!

Anyone tried those Harry’s cartridge razors? Got ads for them all over my home page. The carts & fins / lube strips or whatever they are either side look colossal. How the hell do you shave under your nose with those beasts?
I used to have the very similar Cornerstone razor. First impressions were okayish and then I realised it was just plain crap in every sense.

Possibly the worse multi-blade I have come across. Far too large and far too flexible to be of any practical use and even Mrs Satanfriendly declared it useless

I can shave under my nose using a diagonal stroke, I haven't liked then as they are not smooth. It's not like they are tugging, but just feel uncomfortable. They with Bic are the worst cartridges. Dorco are better.
