NOTES: A real nice DFS+ shave. The 5th shave on the silver blue and it's done. I've not used a blade more than 4 times but figured this round I'm going to push each blade to 5 and for some, maybe beyond. The way I see it being a head shaver, it's like 10 shaves since I'm shaving more than double the area. Out of the 6 razors in rotation, the tech is my favorite. I'm glad it came up in the randomizer today. I did have some neck irritation but not sure why, otherwise no feedback or irritation.
