Herein I submit, according to my own observation and not based on any scientific method, my personal opinion on the most common shaving myths. YMMV, so if you read this and don't agree - that's your option. You don't have to agree with me, and I don't have to agree with you! 1. The Tech is a beginner razor. False. The Tech has gotten a reputation as a good razor for beginners, and while this is certainly true, it is not true that this razor is outgrown once you develop some skills at this endeavor we all share. The Tech is often referred to as a "mild" razor, as if mild is something to be disdained. As if a real pro uses a razor that, with a moment of inattention, will result in removing a section of skin suitable for grafting purposes. I submit that a real pro is capable of getting an outstanding shave with a Tech, and that people who frequent the "looking for a more aggressive razor" bandwagon are doing so because their technique sucks, and an aggressive razor can make up for that lack of technique. There are of course reasons for using an aggressive razor. You like the styling of said razor. You like the characteristics of said razor. You like the challenge of said razor. You have RAD and said razor is next on the list. But buying an aggressive razor because you can't get a decent shave from a Tech is indicative of a problem with the operator, not with the razor.
