    The filters I have been using were minimalist.
    Playing now with some bolder/edgier filters.

    IMG_1238.JPG Now that I possess something akin to competence with a DE, I reckon its time to up the ante. Hence my first attempt at wielding a Shavette; VERY cautiously! Two slow and careful passes, (WTG and then some XTG then WTG some more). Took me a while but I'm happy to report only a couple of very minor cuts and a little bit of irritation; nothing like the kind of carnage I'd been expecting. Finished off ATG with the Tech rather than push my luck any further for now. It's going to take a lot more practise to get competent, but all said, I'm pretty damned pleased.

    Nice, Matt. I am beginning to detect a theme in your recent pics. Do you have enough holiday sets to do the whole twelve days of Christmas thing?

  19. Yes. I actually have 5 divisions of my sets: Fall, Winter/Christmas, Spring/Summer, year-round, and Novelty.
