Impression

First full face shave with my Edwin Jagger straight. It's not the smoothest thing I've scraped across my face, but a definite cut well above the Dorco blades in my CJB Kamisori. I've scraped down my cheeks with this before as well as a clean-up on my neck, but as I introduced, this was my first full face shave.

It went well ...

Two nicks - well, one nick and a slice. Nick on my top lip right in the complicated bit beneath one nostril and a dig in on my chin being ... well, stupid.

Nothing bled beyond a second pass, the alum proved it was a new shaving experience and the Witch Hazel was very welcome. Something sweet, spicy and relieving for afters: Old Spice. Love it!

In all, a good shave. I'll have something to shave off on Christmas Day.
