My second head shave using a DE razor. Again not a perfect result, have too many lumps and bumps up there to smooth over. I tried my EJ razor over the milder Wahl razor, got a little closer I think, but could still get closer again with a less mild blade.

I’m still having trouble keeping a consistent angle to make sure I cut hair all the time. I guess that part of head shaving comes with practice.

The face shave at the same time was a simple two pass shave. Smooth results, no nicks or cuts. The alum block noted a few locations which were ultra close as normal. But otherwise a great shave all up before the weekend.
