Got my first straight
Today, I got my Gold Dollar 208 in the mail from Ruprazor(super free shipping!), wow does it look sharp and I'm actually a little bit intimidated. I have a filly strop on the way so I figure I'll shave once or twice before it gets here, but probably just once. Any advice on stropping? IE frequency, number of laps? I'll go re-read the interactive tutorials on straights again too. If you're wondering about my experience so far I've mastered DE's and creams/soaps(the ones I have) so all I need to learn is straight technique. Actually I did try a shavette once but it was one of the cheap ones from ebay that came with 300 blades for like 20 bucks total. Cut myself good I did. Later gents.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics are questionable.
