Well, I'm a few weeks into this DE shaving thing, and I've been having trouble getting the area around my jawline and under my chin. Yesterday I looked at the pictures in this thread on blade angle, and today I pictured that angle and went slowly - and got the best shave I've had so far! Hurray! I was starting to think of going back to the fusion because the DE didn't seem to be cutting it ( ). But improving my technique and going slow are getting me towards that shaving nirvana of comfortable and closeness.
I recommend looking at that thread for all the new guys and thinking about it while you're working on your technique.
