Cockpit Errors in This Morning's Shave

This morning I ruined a good shave with some careless shaving errors. This doesn't happen that often, but when ever it does, I really hate it.

If I'm using the wrong equipment, errors are much more likely to happen. but with my favored razors, the worst I should see are some minor pin-point weepers.

Not today; I got a weeper the size of a small state park on my neck in my second (cross-grain) pass. Worse, on my third (against-grain) pass, I got a long gouge along my jawline from a careless beginning to a stroke.

I had such high hopes for this shave using one of my preferred blades, the Personna red label, in the Lord L.6 razor head.  This combination can give me a close, comfortable shave with little blood loss when I shave with appropriate care.

Hope your technique was better than mine this morning.

Happy shaving!
