I've had my Coticule for a few months now. I had some initial frustration, then I magically got a decent edge on one of my razors. I've used that razor for a couple of months now, and it's starting to lose it's ability, so I figured I'd get my other razor ready while the original one was still half decent. No success. Everything I try is a failure.
I've read a lot of articles that tell you what to do, but I see very little discussion on what not to do. I also don't see much discussion on where we newbies may be misunderstanding/misinterpreting what seem to be good results, only to find out we read the signs wrong (Is that called a false positive?). So, I'd like to eliminate all the bad things that I may be doing. To that end, in your experience, what are some common mistakes that you have seen newbies make when we're learning on a Coticule? What are some areas where we think we've done something correctly, but usually we end up misreading the results?
