Congrats, Luc. I'm half a year into the straights, had to start over with the prep and technique when it became evident that I had some bad habits that needed to be replaced with the proper way of doing it. I posted here and on the other forums and received a wide variety of EXCELLENT advice from some guys who know what they are talking about, and have already "been there and done that". Straight shaving requires some thought processes that aren't particularly needed when shaving with a DE (which I still do as often as not, and love it, too).

He ate cold beans out of a can and drank some water, and then he saw the small mirror Parker had bought with the razor and the can of lather. He looked at himself and knew he had to take a chance on staying long enough to shave. He shaved, and that made him feel better. . .
