Thanks, Charlie! It certainly shaves better than it did.
Terrific shave, Clint! Sounds like you have the Ambassador dialed in!
Alabama awesome, Perry! Hopefully your meeting goes well and quickly.
Thanks, Clint! I’m planning on sticking with it until I master it! I’m not getting the closeness I like at 3, but I’ll stick there for the next shave or two until I get a better feel for the razor. I think most of my issue with the razor, other than the faulty cap which didn’t seat the blade properly, is the balance. It’s a heavy razor, but most of the weight seems in the handle and not the head, very different from those razors that I enjoy shaving with.
Thanks, Joe, you too! Enjoy your week off!

Excellent shave to start the day! Three passes for near BBS. Just the faintest tickle from the alum.
Have a great day!
Thanks, and I certainly, hope so, Jim! The 3 level is just not cutting it for me!
Great pic, staging and kit, Jim, as usual! That brush looks killer! Is the backbone as good as it looks?
Great AC shave, Perry! Nothing cuts like a Proline!
You are the Rex Master! Great shave, Clint! I hope to get there myself someday!
Great shave, Jim! That Rocnel seems to be treating you well!
Wonderful pic and shave, Jim! The synthetic brush looks fantastic! I have never seen a synthetic brush have a top-tier look.
Great shave with a top flight kit, Tom! The Red Wing is one of my favorites! It’s a highly efficient razor. I love the shave it delivers!
Opening Day of my All-Clubman week went well. The shave cream still oozes out like a snake(course it FEELS better than a snake when it's administered to my skin). I found that I wasn't as successful on my neck as I usually am, mainly going south-north. The angling went fine. Following the aftershave, I added some talc powder on the back of my nexk, just below my ears, and on my feet. I'll see if I can do better on the center of my neck tomorrow. Comment-Partially Excellent.
Nothing like a Krona shave, Danny! I shaved with one for over half a century! It’s a highly under rated razor! Enjoy your day!
Sounds like you're letting the angle get too steep. Maintain a shallow angle and where you move the baseplate to won't matter at all.
Great backbone. Highly recommended.
Today is a non-shave day. It has been 2 days since my last shave! I usually don't go beyond 2 days, but I am off this week. I will shave tomorrow and will be using my largest straight razor. It will be my Wolstenholm 15/16 near wedge. I have only used it a few times since I got it maybe 4 or 5 months ago. It is a good shaver, but I want to use it on a heavier growth to really see how she really shaves. Conventional wisdom is that wedges or near wedges are used for coarse beards or stubble beyond 2 to 3 days growth. Besides, it has been awhile since I have used a straight and will continue to do so for the rest of the week.
Wow. Love the B&W photo Perry.

Very nice, Paul! I notice that you don't include your razor, etc. in your posts. I would find your posts more fascinating if you include your shaving tool in your posts.
Thank you Perry.
