Ok, I took the first step towards shaving w/ a safety razor; the purchase. I sometimes use a straight razor with varying success but now want to get into safety razor shaving (I want to be rid of the mach 3 completly!). Having read all of the great advice I should have bought something like a Merkur HD or older Gillette with mild blades to begin my discovery. However, I never do things the easy way and stubbornly ordered a Futur . Sadly classic shaving was out of the futur and the lavender cream I wanted so I had to order elsewhere.
I bought some merkur and derby blades to be shipped with it. Being a foolish new safety razor shaver with this "aggressive" razor, help! I want to minimize the blood loss! I literally have no safety razor experience. Any advice from veteran users will be appreciated much!
