Hi all, not new to SE razors just giving them all another go after discovering palm stropping. I was reading up on all the different GEM style blade on here and seen some post on palm/hand stropping. I'm using GEM SS coated(Ted Pellas)blades and for me initially they are extremely harsh/rough. Takes a couple shaves to be ok. This seems to be a consensus. I'm not willing to get two bad shave s just to get great ones after. So I specifically want to know the technique. One YouTube video from Hendrix showed very light to no pressure and another older video showed heavy pressure. Which is best? Hope this makes sense, and thanks in advance.
