I just heard about a bunch of people doing some crazy old fashioned style shaving a few weeks ago on another forum I visit and decided to try it out. They all referenced this site as "the site for wet shaving". So I have been doing some reading here.
I ordered the hardware and gave wet shaving a shot last weekend. There is definitely a learning curve. Yesterday I got that shave where things started to click. I think I got my angle pretty close and it went well. It wasn't perfect but it made me think 'I can really do this'.
I bought a blade sampler pack but I have read here that sometimes changing too many things up too fast can cause problems. I have been using the same blade all week but it is getting to be time to change it.
So here's my question(s): Do I switch to another brand to try to find MY blade or do I stick with the same brand and refine my technique?
I am not unhappy with what I have been using but I don't really have a frame of reference as to what a blade that feels great to me is. Should I start mixing it up? What is a reasonable time frame for trying different blades for a newbie?
