I think I'll have my first straight razor shave tomorrow. I've read a bunch about minimizing the blade's contact with water. Am I supposed to rinse the blade under water as I'm shaving -- between passes -- or wipe off the lather/whiskers on something like a rag, towel, sponge?
Also is there a short video that would demonstrate good straight shaving technique? My Internet connection is not terribly fast and it's not unlimited so I can really only watch a video or two without accruing new charges on my monthly account. I'm also looking for a short stropping video.
