Left my normal gear at work. Sat: OK, I started off a with brand new str8 I just got. Dovo INOX SS 4/8. I have to tell you it scared the crap out of me to try one of these things. I did a crummy job and finished up with the Sensor but you know what? I didn't slice or nick myself. Thank God! Now, I need to watch the videos about 20 times. I won't be using these day after day but, I DID IT! Sensor with C&E BB Brush and C&E Nomad Cream C&E brush abd creams never seems to stop impressing me. Sun: Sensor with C&E BB Brush and Shave My Face unscented. The SMF was a first for me. Even though it said brushless, I used a brush and I was glad I did. Did a nice job. Results: Sat. needed a new pair of underwear. :rofl 3.5/5.0. Using the str8 and the Sensor roughed up my neck a lot. A little Thayers aftershave and Proraso cleared it up quick. Sun. BBS with a little leftover sting on the neck from Sat. 4.6/5.0. because I got the BBS. Points deducted for the neck still getting a little roughed up. The problem is the razor is a little light. It makes me feel I need to press down a little too much. Same with the Parker 22R. I prefer a heavier razor and let the razor weight fo the job. The new Merkur coming out looks like it will fit the bill perfectly.
