I actually get really nice comfortable shaves but have 1 small area that is not up to the rest. This same area is a problem even with disposables and 6 passes so to get it where it is in 2 with touch up without irritation is great. I always try different things and I will get it in the end but shaving once a week it is probably going to take a while.
    yep, i had to battle to install a hook for stropping, and i reckon i will have to live with the woeful light in my bathroom for a while yet.

    I feel lucky. I set the shave den up at my office. So no conflicts, originally I really wanted to focus while wielding the big surgical tool. Now I see some other advantages . On light I have it made in the shade, my poor wife is blind in one eye (you really can't tell looking at her, but it is easy to sneak up on her from one side). So she really likes bright lightening. I renovated her kitchen and she kept asking for brighter. I thought I was being a bit snarky and I put in some very bright PAR38 high power lamps with a sunlight spectrum. I knew I could change them. Not a chance she loves them, you flip on the switch in the kitchen for the overhead lamps and no matter the time of day it becomes high noon!

    Yeah I managed to install a hook easy enough. It is inside the cupboard where it can't be seen. For some reason I think the kitchen is the brightest room in my house to. Could be the bright leds though
    My wife calls me......... Can you just use Ed

    Mine is going on the wall where it will be hidden by towels when not in use. Kitchens usually have large windows too.
