    Thanks Jason I don't want to bother you trying to send a razor across the boarder between laws and shipping costs. That's very thoughtful :)

    I should have got Dave to fill it with some Kentucky spirits ;)

    Thanks Clint :)
    Very interesting Danny :)

    I usually do but sometimes the mind wanders ;)

    I think every animal in Canada had a turn carrying it here. I'm just happy it finally made it . This is sure going to be a conversation piece in my house :)

    Thanks Danny :)

    My best way to explain this is with the cart you are used to applying pressure and muscle memory dictates so you are still using the same amount of pressure when using the DE . The way you grip the cart is I'm guessing with all your fingers and thumb so you can apply pressure to make it cut the hair as per design.The DE is designed to be held lightly and thus being heavier than a plastic razor needs no pressure to make it cut . :)
    Since you did me a solid on the Red tip Danny, my lips will remain sealed ;)

    The bottle was empty but just the same they never opened the package to look . Probably just ran through the xray and set it back on the turtles back for the long journey home :)

    Awesome gear Matt:)

    Well, you have to find a way to offset your disability like Jeff did with his Parkinson's so you don't frequently cut yourself. I pray that God would give you the answer to help you on that end. As far as lathering, I would err on more "wet" than "dry". Some soaps like Stirling can take on a lot of water and others not quite as much. You have to find the right lather that works for you. There really isn't a one size fits all when lathering. Some people like Santa Claus beard lathers and others like thin lathers. Lathering is to provide a slick surface for a razor to slide down your face with the greatest of ease so that you aren't digging the razor into your skin. Lathering is part of a shaver's technique. Everyone here is trying to help you to succeed with different suggestions, but ultimately it is on you to right your ship so to speak. This group is about doing a 30 shave focus. I will agree with those members who said you need to put the disposables away and concentrate on solely using your RedTip. It really is the only way.

    Jim, I love it. You're not only a master photographer, but you're also a master chef. That looks absolutely delicious. Enjoy!
