Been DE shaving for about 3 months now...GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!! NO CUTS!!!! I wouldnt mind using a "DE blade-straight" on weekends but I'm curious...is shaving with a Shavette-type straight razor (the type where you crack a DE blade in half) as safe as shaving with a DE? How much of the edge of the blade is exposed in one of these things? I'm worried about making a deep gash on my face if I use one of these and screw up. I figure that if the edge of the blade is barely exposed, I should be good...right?
