Decided to take the Plunge, and to date have had 3 shaves with a Shavette type open razor. On the first shave I had 2 nicks, and there has been no blood loss since then. The shaves have been acceptable....not brilliant.
My question.....is the quality of shave achieved with a "proper" straight better than that obtained using a Shavette? I understand that I am still learning....but I don't want to spend too much on accessories and a good razor unless I can achieve a standard close to my Futur or HD.
