third shave was by far, my best. Not quite bbs, but pretty darn close. I'm heeding as much of the advice I've been given and read. Not chasing the bbs, just concentrating on technique and proper lather. I read a review about the WCS soap i bought that said it was a thirsty soap, so I've been playing with how much water. Today the soap wasnt performing as i wanted. Mid shave, i twirled my brush into the soap again with almost only the water that was in the brush. Whoop there it was. The exact texture and slickness I've been looking for. No razor burn on my neck, no nicks, one touch up spot after 3 passes. A nice cold water rinse, a splash of dunshire, wow, I'm really enjoying shaving like this. The AS felt great. Nice short burn, then a warm tingly feeling. Shave on!!!! P.S. The razor is feeling more comfortable in my hand as I maneuver around the tougher angles.
