Common problem with SE razors and blades when first starting is applying too much pressure on the razor when pressing it on the face. Besides the angle being different from DE razors you need a lighter touch with SE blades than when using DE blades. It is a common mistake most people make when transitioning from DE to SE same as going from carts to DE. The Clog Pruff is one of the milder SE razors out there so if you are having issues it most likely a technique, not being used to how SE blades feel on the skin sort of thing. Both of them improve with practice.GEM Clog Pruf / GEM PTFE (3)
This shave wasn't perfect, but smoother than the last. Focused on keeping the Clog Pruf's cap as close to my skin as possible.
Only had a few weepers on my neck. Still alum sting, but not as bad as last time.
@brandaves - haven't shaved with a 1912 yet as the only SE I have is the Clog Pruf. I am going to take yours and others advice and stick with the Clog Pruf to make slow, steady progress.
