Focus!I've enjoyed shaving with my Parker SRX barber straight. I do admit to a little trepidation before each shave because, after all, it's walking the high wire without a net. That pre-shave concern is a good thing, however. It keeps me focused -- at least at the start.

It must be the nature of my personality because I'm seeing the same tendencies that I used to have (still have??) with a double-edge razor (DE) when I now shave with the straight. That tendency is to become a bit careless as my shave enters its final phase.
It happened again this morning. I had a fresh half-Dorco-ST301 blade in the SRX and had completed a successful first pass. I was pretty much going to call it good, but I wasn't quite satisfied with the closeness on my entire neck, so I re-lathered and shaved that area again. With upward strokes, I got a bit complacent and created a minor cut near the curve of the skin where under jaw meets neck. @#$%@#%!!
Oops, I did it again....
