First time using the X3 and a slat period, and unfortunately I was not able to get a great lather with the Fat. Instead of starting over, I went ahead with what I had, and though the shave was uncomfortable and left some irritation, it still resulted in a no nick, DFS. Will try again tomorrow with some of my go to cream/equipment and see if the shave is any better.
Great pictures everyone! Half way through the week...
