I got a nice close 3-pass shave with my first shave with this GEM "Featherweight". It is so light that I may have used a bit too much pressure. It bit me 3 times! After using the Hawk and such an easy shave, this little guy demands respect! It was all user error and me getting sloppy while trying to learn how this little razor behaves. Tomorrow will be better. Nicks were stopped with alum bar and I got plenty of feedback from the alum bar. Lesson learned and will adjust the shave tomorrow. I used GEM blade. Under the nose was more difficult with this razor.
