Impression

First shave with a straight edge which I took to very happily, really enjoying the control I had. One nick. Lesson learned and a timely reminder that I had a very sharp blade in my hand. Gillette 7 o'Clock Super Stainless makes a capable and to go blade for SE and DE.

Two days of growth. Straightforward and very happy with the result. The PolSilver Super Iridium blade was very sharp and almost silent.
