This sounds right to me. I don't really care for guessing angles etc. but the head in the Old Type bends the razor blade less than other razors (or maybe this is just how it makes sense in my head). So, you have to hold the handle at an angle that is more perpendicular to your face than compared to a newer TTO. If you are having trouble with it, you may have just taught yourself to shave with the handle at a different angle. Try using the Old Type for a while, the adjustment may come organically.

Razors don't shave people. People shave people!
There are three critical types of moments in life: Times when we should use opportunity to be enamoured with finer details, and times we should ignore the minutia.
