My Feather Artist Club SS razor(lime green) arrived in the mail at 11:00 AM today.Amazing since I'm in Florida and it was shipped from L.A. on Saturday. I studied the Wiki on how to hold the razor and practiced without the blade
I went thru the Wiki again from top to bottom focusing on the proper grips. I have been reading everyones journals on here for the last 2 weeks and following the progress of Drip and Grip and Noah.(thanks again Noah)--At 4 PM
I told myself I was ready and I did my death walk to the bathroom.
I alternate 2 brushes every other day a Semouge LE Bristle 2 2011 (#91) and a Duke 3--Today was the Dukes turn
I used 5 drops of glycerin as a pre-shave and latherd up with Razorock xxx. Nervously I loaded the blade in the razor and began.---my first pass was crazy , holding the razor felt almost backhanded but I didn't cut myself.The second pass I relaxed more and acutally cut some hairs.I got 2 weepers which weren't bad but than I gouged my chin and stopped.
The neck actually wasn't bad which suprised me. all in all not bad.I am excited and feel I just need to get comfotable holding the razor..Sure is fun--can't wait for tomorrow. The chin area is going to be a problem because it took a looong time to stop bleeding--Styptics can only do so much--I told SWMBO to stock up on bandaids
