So I have gotten into wet shaving, then purchased a straight razor from Whippeddog.com great prodeucts for a first timer. So I finally took the time and began my learning curve of using a straight razor. The results are:
1) Cheek-check to easy a little irritation from well first time user
2) Chin a little nick but nothing bad
3) didn't attempt the neck but hit my head, top and side-check to easy
Love straight razor!! my non-dominant hand (left) felt more comfortable when shaving then my dominant hand (right), kind of funny. I tried to be very careful with my technique as from what I have read most mistakes from us newbies are made with technique. I kept the spine as close to my face as I could and used short wtg strokes, the 2nd pass was not as bad. Still love using a straight razor, I am sure my technique just needs some adjusting. Any advice?? I can be e-mailed at [email protected] please do not send spam to my e-mail, since I am training a lot I don't always have access to B&B so that is a good method of contact for advise if anyone could.
