Try a more blade forward razor (not a Henson, I know you tried the medium) with no pressure and ride the cap. Sharp blade is also a must for me. I can easily pull this off with a Carbon .68 Ti razor, BB Ti, Yates 921 M or H. I know better than to go for it all with my Henson, too mild. If you can do it with a 34C, you can do it more razors with better, longer lasting results.Thanks, I have two Henson Milds, the Winning razor and the Merica razor, and I think all of those are pretty rigid in design. I will pay attention to the points you mentioned.
