Impression

First pass with the razor wide open and I was starting to feel like I'd shaved. With the wide blade gap, I found I could enjoy a light touch and so shave without irritation, something which has been quite the contrary so far with my experience of injectors. Second pass, I closed the gap up and this pretty much finished off the shave. I could have stopped here and enjoyed a good shave, but let's just drop the gap right down and make a very gentle final pass against the grain with a little polishing to get a really smooth shave.

Finally! I got a fine shave out of an injector. I am sure this will stand me in good stead for returning to my other injectors in due course. It also confirms to me that I much prefer a more aggressive shave from an injector.
