I have been shaving with a Gillette FB for a few weeks and have been itching to try something new. I picked the Old Style since it was the only other DE razor I currently have. For preshave, I used a hot towl, some ProrsaiaI used an Astra blade. I got a good lather on my face and started shaving. I did my normal 3 pass shave (WTG, XTG, ATG).
I'd heard a lot about OC razors. I know lots of guys swear by them. I did not get the greatest shave ever. The first pass (WTG) was pretty good and smooth. However, I did not get a very smooth ATG shave. I could still feel stubble when I was done. HOWEVER, I am not sure it was the razors fault. The blade was on its last legs (shave #4 or 5). I feel like after the first pass it may just not have been cutting as well. I DID notice that I got no razorburn at all on my normal spots on my neck. This could just be me gaining more experience, or the change in razor.
I will try this again tomorrow with a fresh blade and see how my shave is. Any comments and suggestions appreciated!
