I figured I'd update this post - so, I had not used my ATT M2 open comb razor since last winter because I had found that even with the switch to the M2 (mild) baseplate from the R2 (regular) the razor was still too aggressive for me. I've been shaving with safety razors for about 4 years now and I thought last winter that my technique was dialled in. In any case, I picked up the razor yesterday and loaded it with a Rapira Platinum Lux blade, which I find to be a very comfortable blade generally, and set off to give the ATT another chance. Well, I think that either through an improvement in technique, an ideal blade, alignment of the stars or a combination of all of those things, I found the razor to be a little less harrowing to use. Its still aggressive but I'm getting a BBS shave without any nicks or irritation whatsoever. Make no mistake, I know its a very close shave when I'm done but its still comfortable. I'm glad I held on to this razor and gave it another chance, we all deserve a second chance don't we?
