First shave with a fresh Wilkinson Sword DE blade, this time pushed across the surface of the Razorpit membrane immediately post shave. You rub a little shave cream on the Razorpit surface and push the razor upwards against the membrane, making sure that the blade itself runs across the surface. It’s hard to tell if it’s actually doing so since its difficult to know if you have the right angle. Easier I guess with a cartridge razor. I did it three times just to be sure.

Today’s shave with the fresh blade was once again terrific. It’s one of the strange quirks of shaving that shaves still feel good even when the blade gets old and tired, but you know right away when you have a fresh blade in play. There was a time when I used to change blades for each shave, but I gave it up for environmental concerns.
