Heh. I looked like I had been sorting wildcats after my first straight shave.
Banned for Life from "Over There"... TWICE!
I have only been shaving with a straight for a couple of months and I feel much better. The first month was like a medieval blood letting without leeches. For a short time I felt like I was getting worse. Keep at it and you will achieve that baby butt face you are looking for.
There's something wrong with me... I want pictures!
Some wonder when I mention I'm 2/3 straight and 1/3 DE!
(Not that there's anything WRONG with that!)
As Theodoric of York (Medieval Barber) would say, "You'll feel much better after a good bloodletting".
Seriously, it's all part of the learning curve. Keep at it. There is nothing quite like the satisfaction of a great straight razor shave without any nicks, cuts, irritation, etc. It really makes my day. Everyone says that it takes 50-100 shaves to get it down pat. Once you do, you'll wish you could shave two or three times a day!
"Strangers have the best candy...."
"Beware the man who doesn't make time for oo-mox. "
i dunno... maybe there is something wrong with my but i am WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY past 100 shaves and i still nick myself all the time.... *(and by nick i mean unscheduled pimple removal or slight weeper along jawline...)
a nice walk in the woods helps me relax and relieves tension....
the fact i'm dragging a shovel and a body should be irrelevant...
