View Full Version : Shaving with a Str8 Wedge

Is there a difference in technique (angle, etc) for shaving with a Wedge blade vs hollow or extra hollow?
I am about two months into Straight Razor use and have one Wedge blade that I just can't seem to get a decent shave from. Razor is as sharp as others, so I assume it is technique???

No, not really. Usually there is some mod because the blade is bigger and heftier and more difficult to maneuver but it's all small potatoes. If you are not getting a good shave either it's not as sharp as you think or you are doing something radically different as you shave.

I found with mine that it was not so much that it needed a different angle as that it felt like a different angle because there was so much steel :lol:
I really had to pay attention at first to make sure that I was maintaining the angle with it.
