    So I have been shaving with my new (to me) Merkur 23c. Also, my wife bought me a brand new EJ DE86. So today, I decided to step it up a notch.

    Hot shower with a good scrub.
    Shave Secret pre oil
    TGH soap with a dab of Real Shave Co. cream
    EJ DE86 razor
    Derby blade
    second shave with Merkur 23c
    personna blade
    witch hazel splash
    AquaVelva aftershave

    Wow what a close shave. Damn my face feels good! This makes my 5th DE shave and I haven't lost a single drop of blood.

    I am pretty sure that the whole EJ line uses the same head. I started off with a EJ89L, while I can't say I never lost any blood to it. I can say it was a heck of a razor and I that I miss it, I gave it away to a friend that was starting out with DE shaving. I have been eying up the EJ89 barley chrome. I am going to have to order some more blades soon so I may break down and get the razor too just to make it to the free shipping mark.

    Good to hear! Has the wife noticed how smooth your face is yet?!

    Just remember, faceturbating in public gets some weird looks! :D
