The face shave was great. I don't use this razor often. It makes me nervous to use. I'm not so much a collector and I always buy a razor intending to use it. This New improved razor I got has zero flaws and the handle tube seems so fragile I don't want to split or crack it. It shaves great though and a bit more blade feel then the NEW and Brit Aristocrat I got recently. Those two are crazy smooth feeling that I wasn't expecting.
Ok, head shave... I tried the Maxwell June again. I love the engineering and design behind this razor. The handle length is great for me to get behind the head and back of the neck to shoulders.
The only negative is I do have to slow down and think. I definitely can't treat it like a cartridge razor like I can with the High Proof. I used very little if any pressure today and only got one nick this time. Huge improvement over last times scalping. Super efficient razor and so much less touch ups then with the High Proof. Now if Maxwell comes out with a pivoting head I would definitely try it too. The Maxwell Spring...
For speed and ease of shaving the High Proof wins for me. For closeness of shave and agility to get everywhere the Maxwell June wins. But for me the Mach 3 is still my overall favorite head shaver.
