Kyle said:1. I prefer to hold the razor with either index finger and thumb or those two with the addition of the middle finger. I will typically hold the very tip of the handle.
2. I get my best results by letting the weight of the razor provide the pressure.
3. Razor skipping is not a desirable trait. It should smoothly glide. If it does not, then you either don't have any shave cream on your face or the cream isn't properly lubricating your face.
