See for yourself, 15 minute challenge
I enjoy a nice leisurely shave as much as the next guy. I also appreciate the beard reduction philosophy/techniques shared by many if not most in the wet shaving community. However, sometimes life throws you a curveball. What if you had only fifteen minutes for prep, shave and...www.badgerandblade.com
I typically take around 5 minutes for a two pass shave. Not sure if it's fast or not. About the same time as it used to take with a DE. Lather is on the wetter side in that it won't win any lather of the day photo competition, but works well for me.
I don't chase a fast shave, that's asking for trouble in my opinion. Experience is the key I guess. I personally don't understand the reason for half hour or longer shave routines, but as it's none of my business, to each their own.
Yes, it is done with the wrist and is quite easy around the cheeks and chin bones. It is a sweeping motion. It is a very natural feel and quite effective. Give it a try.This 'arching' technique, imagining the heel of the blade is pivoting the blade in an arch on the face, I find is a very useful stroke.
Everyone's face, hair, growth patterns differ. What works for me, might not work for you and vice versa. The only thing I recommend is practice and find what works for you. Sorry I can't offer more insight. The chin area can be difficult as often hair will sprout in strange patterns. I find it is easier (for me, others may and probably will differ) to use the part of the blade nearer the heel for the chin. Obviously take care with the toe.If you've got any tips on how to tackle the lower lip and chin area, please let me know.
