Continuation with the experiment.
Well after all this research and reading on straight razors and strops, I decided to finally (6pm) hop in the shower and have a shave. Hoping for 3 perfect shaves in a row. Lather up and start with the first pass, whoa! I can feel the blade, it is getting dull. For optimum results, Gillette blades must be limited to 2 uses. I did 2 quick passes, and walked away with a fine shave. Todays shave is at LEAST as good as any I ever got from the Mock3, if not better. Yup I think I have this wet shaving thing down. I am starting to see a wear spot on the back of my Proraso tube, I sill have more than enough to last a while, but I think I will have to look into ordering a few of the big tubes online pretty soon.
