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?

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?

It's got a precision trimmer blade for sideburns and under the nose.

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!

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
