    Will see how long this BBS lasts but feels like a world class head shave.

    Hoping it was someone here that sniped the Model 2 at a good price this morning.

    Blame the snipers who can't stand to be known prior to the last 5 seconds of auction.

    It was an injector blade i used with toms adapter. I didn't have a new one so I reused one I had. It was a harsh and aggressive shave .

    It is not a mild razor. On a scale of 1to10 I put it at 7-8. Try a new blade.

    Another shave, waaay different results. While I'm waiting for my order of blades to come in, I decided to experiment a little. I got a bbs shave today with no burn or sting from the aftershave. The blade felt tuggy and you can tell the edge wasn't new. But playing with the shave I was able to get a great shave!

    So what did I do? I modified a used se blade. I pulled off the spine and cut the blade in half and reinstalled the spine.

    I then used the adapter that tom provided and used it as a wedge.

    On the first pass, I had the wedge first then the blade. The last 2 passes I moved the blade and placed the wedge in front.

    I also messed with the shake sharp feature. It did seem to work and knock off the rough edge I felt during the first 2 passes. I ordered some new gem blades and some injector blades. I'll continue to mess with it.

    So I received 100 gem ptfe blades. The first thing I did was adapt a blade for the DeHaven. I did the first pass as I did in the previous post ( blade inserted first then the wedge), but the shave felt rough, so I switched the position of the wedge to the rear and moved the blade forward and that smoothed out the shave. It was so smooth, I got bbs with some weird irritation. Where I initially shaved on both sides my face began to swell and burn, now I don't know if it was the blade, or how I was shaving or maybe when I modified the blade I dirtied it? But it burned and itched bad. But tell you what.. my face is still smoooooth as I write this.
