Picked up a shave ready Korn 5/8ths hollow ground on the shave mall and followed the tutorial as close as possible for my first shave. Still trying to get the angle right. I did not attempt to go against the grain, and I probably won't for quite a bit.
Suffered from a very very light bit of razor burn (went away in less than an hour). Picked up some after shave for next time as my post shave with the DE was a bit of astringent.
I know I am going to have to hone this thing eventually. How often does a straight need a hone and if I am planning to shave 3 time a week, should I get more than one straight?
I nicked myself once early, and it must have been just barely as it stopped bleeding before I finished even finished shaving. I think I am still a little "razor" shy, but I like it so far, just don't want to make a mistake and end up with a grisly scar
