I'm going to have to call it a day with this Schick ...

It's gone from passable to bad, sadly, with me having to pull two passes to get what I would call shaved; one with the grain and one against to get to where I would with a single pass with a Gillette Trac II by way of example.

Alas, that against the grain pass has left me with a rash of ingrowers up my neck and so tonight I made just a single with the grain pass (with a slide) and there are patches that simply will not shave no matter what angle or how many times I go over. Against the grain, I can shave them but it's a heavy price to pay.

I'm going to put it aside for a few days to recovery and have another go with one of a generous number of blade types sent to me by a forum pal. I like Gillette Platinum Plus, but experience is showing me that I can only get maybe three shaves from them; Personna I don't like. I have a good variety to try out, but it'll be in a short while.
