First Straight Razor shave (and shave readiness questions...)
First straight razor shave directly after DE...
ROUGH. Really rough... Everyone at work could tell what I did that morning! I had some cuts, and definitely a few gouges.
I'm honestly not sure how it's supposed to go. It's an old razor, I got it as a gift from my Mom & Dad (who didn't really use it.) A J.A. Henckels Twinworks (of some, unidentified type) with a round edge. a small amount of rust on the tang/shank area, right over the pin.
The shave seems very rough as the blade scrapes across my face pretty loudly. I can't tell if it's too sharp, or not sharp enough. How can I be sure it's shave ready?
