I posted my first shave in a different thread, but I find it would be a lot easier to keep my questions and your responses together. I guess you could say it would be sort of a journal............. Just to recap, my first shave was "ok", I had a pretty nasty cut on the base of my neck from not pulling my skin tight enough. Since then I have had a few good nicks. Certainly not getting close as my DE. Still using it to finish up. My main question right now is razor burn. I never really experienced razor burn with a cart or DE. My skin is pretty tolerate. Since using a straight, I am getting razor burn bad enough to hurt several hours into the day. Am I pressing too hard? Is my angle off? Am I trying to shave too quickly? Maybe all the above but any advise would be helpful. Looks like I be watching some more videos tonight. Thanks Guys.
