I've been shaving with a str8t for around 6 to 8 weeks now, using a couple of full hollow vintage blades honed by Larry at Whipped Dog. These have been great to learn on, and I've become pretty comfortable using them. It was pretty frustrating at first.
This morning, however, I used a wedge blade that was restored and honed by Shave Smith in Ft Collins, CO, and it was amazing. The closest, most comfortable shave I ever felt.
If you're in your first few weeks of shaving with a str8t, keep at it! You'll get it!
