I used the adjustable DESR again today. It still performed no better than any other razor with the grain, but it definitely cut and burned as well as any of the others after shaving against the grain.
Here’s a note about my new razor. It’s adjustable. You already knew that if you paid attention to the first paragraph. In fact, it even has little number settings from 1 through 5. The system is definitely adjustable, but the numbers must surely be there for mere decoration. They must be; the start position is actually somewhere around 3. Though it can be adjusted past 5 back to 1.
This and future shaving posts about the DESR will henceforth be also tagged with “hatred.”
