Reading this thread with interest. Got this far and had to chime in.Yes, I layed the razor flat on my face when I started. I started slow strokes and managed to go faster after a few passes. I could hear the razor cutting with each pass. Neck and chin area was the most difficult part. I can't tell you how many times I debated on moving back to De shaving to finish the neck and chin area.
I read it in another thread somewhere, that every 15 shaves you achieve some SR shaving milestone. I agree. I am at SR shave #58 and *approx* shaves 15, 30, and 45 were noteworthy.I get SAS's pretty much all the time. Today my cheeks are at DFS. Hoping that somewhere around 30 shaves I'll attain BBS.
Can confirm. I’ve completed 50 SR shaves and there were milestones about every 15 shaves.I read it in another thread somewhere, that every 15 shaves you achieve some SR shaving milestone. I agree. I am at SR shave #58 and *approx* shaves 15, 30, and 45 were noteworthy.
Agreed you will eventually draw blood if you SR shave exclusively. It may be nothing major. But it'll happen. I have a scar from SR shaving and I was 2 years in. Too comfortable with a super sharp razor. Still wouldn't dare stop SR shaving.People who nick/draw blood using a SR/DE/SE fall into two distinct groups: "those who have, and those who will." An old truth shared amongst B-52 Navigators who flew low-level (300-500' AGL) missions "back in the day." When it came to needing to use an airsickness bag during low-level there were those who had filled a bag, and those that would sometime in the future (some multiple times a flight, every flight) it was just something you accepted and went about your business.
