SOTD 29/11/2013

Damn it! Damn! Damn! Damn! ... and damn a little more!

Recently, I tried my little haul of injector razors with a pack of Schick blades I got off Amazon. I could not get any razor to work for me - rough, didn't cut, uncomfortable ... and I finished off with my DE. Today, Connaught's blades arrived, felt sharper, injected well ... and ... in my Personna, very poor. I tried all manner of angles, worked with the razor to get it right ... it scraped some growth off, but left a patchy, rough and tough finish which no end of going over got any more growth off.

Damn it! I really wanted this to work out for me ...

Wanting "that" classic single edge shave, I grabbed my 1912 Brooklyn Made ER with a GEM blade and finished off. Noisy but smooth and finished the job to my satisfaction ... top lip and all.

Damn it! I really wanted the injector the play out ...
