Hi everyone, I'm honoured to be part of your group.
I'm 21 years old and straight shaving is new to me. I've wanted to get into it for the past year or so. I received an electric razor (a really nice one too) for Christmas and exchanged it for my first straight blade: a basic model Henckle.
Are these good razors? or at least good enough to start?
I tried using the razor once on my sideburn but failed. I've ordered the DVD from Classic Shaving and hopefully this will get me on my way. What's the chances that my new razor is going to need a hone before it is really "SHAVE READY".
