OK, I am about to try my next shaving experiment, but this one has me a bit worried. I had all my razors in the scrubbing bubbles soak today, and I noticed a small patch of whiskers I missed on my chin. I had a Feather ready to load in one of my razors once it was clean. Well... I took a dab of cream and picked up the blade by the edges, and easily cleaned the errant whiskers off my chin. I noticed that I got A LOT of tactile feedback by holding the blade directly, and had no problems maintaining blade angle. I think tomorrow, I am gioing to try shaving with a DE blade sans razor. I am going to do it in the evening when I have plenty of time, and have styptic and possibly a bag of O+ on hand. Have any of you heard of shaving with just a DE blade?
