wow...the videos make it look so easy! I stopped after doing one cheek and under the bottom lip, living again to fight another day. I didn't want to rush it. No cuts - but not very close shave either.
It is harder to learn than DE shaving, thats for sure. A couple of observations:
1. The main problem i found was the size of the blade (the length) - it feels like I'm trying to shave with a sword! It's hard to have any more than an inch actually in contact with skin.
2. It felt like there was no weight in the razor, i couldn't get a really effective stroke which mean the razor pulled a fair bit - when i finished up with the DE, that felt really heavy and just cut through the whiskers. Do i need to apply some pressure with the straight?
thanks for reading!
