Welcome to the B.
I can't give you hands on help from Michigan, BUT there are a lot of straight vids and advice around. Read the forums here, and google Straight Razor Shaving for images and You Tube. I don't know where you are in straight razor use. Do you use wet lather now? If so, you have a good start. Do you have a straight razor now? Is it honed and ready for use? Let us know more, and we can help you out!

Welcome to B & B. Keep checking back, I'm sure some of the straight razor guys will be willing to help you out. Did you post in the straight razor forum? You might want to.
Welcome to B&B!
I will move your thread to the straight shaver clinic. You will get more answers.

Yeah, I've been DE wet shaving for about 6 years and I've been looking forward to str8 shaving for 3. The razor was pro sharpened & shave ready. Although, the shave wasn't so great. I had high expectations since I kept hearing people describe str8 shaving like its a hot knife through butter. It was really kind of uncomfortable and pulled. I've been reading forums & vids for a good while b4 I had a str8 trying to prepare for when I got one.
There's also a local guy around where I live who buys up all the str8 razors from the antique shops in town (a member maybe?). So it made me think that maybe I could meet up with a local shaver for some real life guidance.
I've learned tons of things from B&B forum and recently also SRP. These forums really improved my shaving.
Shaving used to be a chore, but now it's something I look forward to.
Now I just gotta get str8's figured out.
