Then wanting a little better shave, I took a second pass, all cross grain, to finish the shave.
Tomorrow it's the same gear and with-grain first pass. I may stop there with a standard shave, or I may again take a second pass, cross grain like today with the same razor.
I capped today's shave with a bit of alum on my lower neck, where irritated from the cross-grain start. Then a bit of Aqua Velva musk after shave, topped with some moisturizer.
Not a bad shave despite the weak start.
