Should have gone back to basics
So I let my beard grow for a few days, did all my prep, had all my premium gear out for a relaxing, luxury Sunday shave. I decided, since I was going to take my time, I'd use one of my straights. Mind you, I have been so into my DE razors that I haven't used my straights for a year. Well, if you don't use it, you loose it. Along with your face. I felt like a first time wet shaver. I figured, I'm a pro, I can do this. I should have done a simple practice run just on my cheeks like Lynn says to do when you start out, but no, I did two passes. Cuts, burn, you name it. :-(
I'm going to have to practice more.
