A more exiting way to shave.
on 12 September 2014
I can just about do a passable shave with this now, after about 5 or 6 attempts. It has helped that I went from Cartridge to D.E. and then to this, but I'm still a little afraid to do more than 1 pass, since the technique is still a little scary, but just to have it out on the bathroom ledge and to know that you can do it is fantastic enough and it looks cool too when you are doing it. I used YouTube and the wealth of videos of people teaching you, and to also see that it's not as dangerous as you'd think it was. Obviously if you do go Sweeny Todd style with it, it's only going to end up with lots of tomato sauce everywhere, but it is cheaper by having D.E. blades that you break in half for it and not having to learn how to hone and strop is also nice, as that's something else I've not learnt yet. But this is not the sort of razor you'd use in your morning rush. Time must be taken, particularly in the early stages of use and learning.
