I received my DE razor from Westcoast Shaving and am ready to make my first DE shave and have a question on beard grain.
I took a extra long weekend and haven't shaved since Wednesday. On my face it appears that grain is predominantly N-S. I am having difficulty analyzing the grain on my neck as there is no color in 90% of my neck hairs so I have to go by feel. It seems that under the chin and around the Adam's apple it goes N-S and for the rest of the neck it goes S-N. Does that seem possible? Could the years of cartridge shaving have altered the grain as the grain appears to be in the exact manner that I shaved with a cartridge razor? I would shave the face and under the chin N-S and the rest of the neck S-N.
