This morning was a special for me. I made my first straight shaving and the step to the new world has been taken. I really enjoyed it with full heart. I have not hurry to go anywhere just to spend all day at home and nothing serious to do. So I spent a long time in bathroom and having fun and de-stressing.
The shave wasn't bad at all but like all know it wasn't the best either. Cheeks and under chin areas are larger and flat and they are easier to get quite well done. I used wtg + atg passes but have to say that in a harder spots the passes were something between wtg/xtg/atg. I change the grip many times especially in harder spots and it changes the passes too.
One question pop up during shaving.
Do you move your straight by sliding it with a long movements? Cheeks and under jaws are easier to slide in wtg passes but what about atg (or xtg)? I noticed that some points was easier for me to do with blade buffing just like with DE (mantic videos are great too).
I think the sliding itself improving all the time for just practicing it every day.
I have wished many times during last weeks that God, let my beard grow faster....
