1963 Gillette Adjustable DE Setting it to a "5" Took my time...S L O W Three passes WTG One pass ATG C&E Sienna soap C&E BB Personna Blade The faces feels a little tight, but a very close shave. I shave my head daily as well with a Mach III. I went one pass WTG on the head with the DE, then finished it off with the Mach III. I was nervous to to ATG on the head this time as it was the 1st DE shave. Tomorrow I need to use a hot towel in pre-shave, like I read on another thread. How long before I dial up from a "5" to a 3..2..1? How long are those Personna blades good for...maybe two shaves?
