    when i do my final shaving i get down to the white leather with ease.but when i want to shave the neck thinner i get uneven cut`s , the blade seems jut as sharp,i have a pro fleshier,any advise on what`s going on.
  2. if the rest of the skin is shaving fine, it's just a matter of practice, your neck might look un even because you are removing more skin from that thicker area, just work with your guard setting and play with it to figure out how to make it more consistant.

    Your not overlapping your cuts enough.

    The knife cuts the deepest, in the center of the cut, and more shallow towards the top and bottom edge of the cut. You need around 2"s of overlap, to make the second cut blend with the first. That's what makes the skin a uniform depth all over. Its kinda hard to explain, without showing you on the machine.
