I had a second DE Shave today, in order to keep my hand in. I used the Futur which was my first DE purchase, when I gave up shaving with carts.I think my use of a Futur influenced my liking for heavier Vintage SE Razors when I switched my allegiance to them [ The "Streamline being my favourite ]
The Shave was very smooth , and apart from my inattention causing a slight weeper the overall quality of the finished Shave is high. I doubt that in the near future I will be reverting to DE, as I enjoy the use of Vintage/ Modern SE Razors too much.
