I am not exactly sure what I have heard on this forum and Mantic's videos regarding the "blade angle". Is this the angle of the blade to the skin, or of the handle of the razor to the skin? It would seem from the name of it that the former would be the case. However, this can be rather confusing, because if you started out with the handle perpendicular to your skin, and you rocked the razor 30 degrees downward, this would give you an angle between the blade and the skin of 30 degrees, although the angle between the handle of your razor and the skin would be 60 degrees. I only ask this because it seems to me that when trying to find the perfect angle, it would make more sense to describe it as the angle between the razor handle and the skin (60 degrees), rather than the angle between the blade and an imaginary line perpendicular to your face (30 degrees). Tell me if I'm looking way too much into this.
