Your blades and shaves demonstrate very good techniques in your shave. I was not able to use Feathers in my shave for well over a year. I have been a face & head shaver since the mid 80’s. My shave now has morphed into an ATG Single Pass face and head shave. I morphed into a single use Feather, for each shave. Always practicing and using the same sharpness in the blade has elevated my shave.Thank you all for the kind welcomes and tips.
What I have found works so far is the Feather blade for the face (About 5 to 6 shaves) and Astra for the head shave(Have 4 head shaves on the latest, still going strong).
On the head, I was going against the grain for the first pass, since that is what I had to do with a cartridge razor. I changed that up to do a with the grain pass first. I can usually clean up by just rewetting my head in the areas that need it.
