For the last couple of weeks I've been using nothing but a straight razor to shave. I'm getting more comfortable with it, but I have gotten a bit of irritaion on my throat. So this morning I decided, take a break, use the DE.
I loaded up my 34C with a new Blue Bird and used some Mama Bear Good Morning Honey soap. What a shave! I had almost forgotten how good a DE shave could be. It was pretty much an effortless BBS. One or two little weepers on the throat, but not very much irritation at all. I definitely think shaving with the straight has made me really aware of the growth pattern on my neck and this helped when I shaved today.
I think I am going to use the DE for a few days until my throat heals up. It was nice to go back to some of my old tools and remember how great they can be.
Anybody else take a break and then come back and have a similar experience?
