On Sat I had the best shave of my life and it was from a straight- a plastic Wapi in fact. Silky-smooth with no irritation and better than any of the 12 safety razors I've tried (all of which have had a Feather in them). I'd suspected that those members trumping the innate superiority of straights might just not have had their DE routine quite down. I now know this is not the case. It was quite an effort for me to get to this stage, but well worth it!
