Five shaves in, the first three were OK, but not really close. The fourth and fifth shaves were somewhat "adventuresome".
No, isn't my razor!
Seriously, I'm using a Red Point from the Whipped Dog, and it seems to be just fine, but my technique is a little lacking. And having used a DE for so long, the straight is easy to lose track of -- tonight I actually stuck the point into my cheek at about a 90-degree angle! OUCH!
All that will come along in due time, I feel. The real question concerns an XTG shaving pass. How do I gain the confidence to shave XTG? Currently, I'm using little tiny strokes XTG, and it really isn't working out too well. I'm leaving little red lines on my face when I do so. Some suggestions would be appreciated.
BTW, that picture above is a spear point made by the original "Clovis Man"...
