Too much work/effort?
Straight shaving seems like too much work! I got the film and stuff, but 100 or so strokes on 5 different sizes, then more stropping- all done at a slow pace- you're talking an hour or so just to get shave ready! And, 20 minutes of stropping either before or after each shave. It takes me 15 or less minutes from start to finish three passes with my DE or SE and I doubt a straight could shave me any/much closer! And there are three main learning curves on lapping, stropping, and shaving with a straight- with a DE or SE there is only one main learning curve. I'd love to be told I'm wrong, but it sure seems like a lot of work for - why?
