I have changed my personal scoring system to judge a little harsher. I have not been in this style of shaving very long in the grand scheme of things. Every week or so I find that the shave was just a bit better. If I would score this shave a 9+ I wouldn't have anywhere to go with what could be a better shave.Just curious, what kept you from rating it higher?
If you ever watch a pizza review from barstool it is the same idea. He has over 400 reviews and I think 8 are 9+.
In let's say 2 years I hope I am just knocking them dead everyday. I do have two little spots in my neck line, one on each side. If I don't hit those with perfect angle and pressure I get irritation. I feel just a touch of it today. Great shave as far as smoothness goes but room for improvement.
This got really long. Sorry.
Hope that answers your question.
