Well let's see, I just started wet shaving about a week ago now by purchasing a Lord Tech Razor and Derby Extra blades. I also brought a soap and brush but have yet to use those as I am still transitioning. Currently, I'm adapting to the razor using Gillette's foamy shaving cream.
Now onto the actual problems. I shaved today (after not shaving for two days as my hair does not grow back to a state that is not presentable until this point) and found the shave to be like that of a shave on my old cartridge razor (Gillette Sensor) after about a week of not shaving. The resulting sensation was a heavy pulling near the jawline close to the chin, as well as directly on the chin. The problem also persisted on the neck area directly below my ears on my chin. However, the second pass was far easier than the first, with virtually no feelings of tugging at all.
Now, I have heard that the first pass is supposed to be the easiest, and that the shave should not be tugging in the least bit. The blades are brand new so I don't feel like a Derby should be at all dull by this point (only a week!).The next variable could be if I am actually going with the grain on the first pass. Unfortunately, I've looked and felt around and it definitely feels like N to S on my chin / jaw line is with the grain. Any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this problem?
