I'm pretty new to all this, I just recently received my first razor, a dovo 5/8 hollow ground with tortoise shell scales and I'm about 3 complete shaves into straight shaving.
My technique needs a lot of work, but I have no complaints about the razor at all. When everything works as it should, it feels great and is awesomely close to boot.
Anyway, the beard under my chin is pretty thick, so I was thinking about trying a heavier straight, perhaps a wedge. Something different in the rotation to compare and contrast.
Can anyone suggest a wedge or similar that would suit a newb like myself?
Also, is a 3" leather strop suited to wedges, or do I need to buy a paddle strop for it.
Many thanks to everyone who's helped me along the way, it's great to see such support.
