Howdy... 1. yesterday i used that basic dovo razor for the first time following some of lynn abrams' advice. i wrote earlier that i didn't find his dvd too useful, not for the utter beginner, but there is some brief written material on his site that i found very helpful. such as, spend time getting used to the feel of the razor in your hand, which i did, and then for the first couple of days limit yourself to shaving a sideburn to jaw strip only on the side of your face of the dominant hand. 2. okay, the awesome naked blade didn't break the skin in any way. did that for maybe a minute or less and then completed the shave with DE. 3. did the same thing this a.m. 4. here's where i need your help. i find it hard to see what i'm doing, my razor-holding hand is between the blade and my eye, thus making it hard to judge where the blade is in relation to my skin when starting a stroke. advice?
