I think you mean the Gillette 7 o’clock or Gillette Blue razors. Available in India indeed. And the Blue also in other places I believe. 3 piece razor so you can swap handles.Off the top of my head I don't remember exactly what the name of the razor is, but somebody will come along with the answer pretty soon.
Your enthusiasm is contagious! and Thank You!Maintain your blade angle at all times, and DO NOT use any pressure. Let the razor do the work. If you have course whiskers, I find shorter cutting strokes work better then long cutting strokes. Ooooooo, I am just so excited for you, I want you to have your items now, so you can shave, and let me know if you enjoyed the experience. HEHE
Thanks for this, I have a pretty bad razor burn and irration right on my left side underjaw area, your post and that video gave me an idea what I did wrong.Some great advice here, and I want to emphasis what @Guido75 said - give it a few months.
Experienced folks can take any razor and blade and have a great shave. Me? I've only been at this for 6 months and only now am I beginning to get a handle on all of the variables.
One thing that doesn't help me is my OCD tendencies - going for too close of a shave.
Before I found this place, I watched a lot of Geofatboy's videos (Shave Nation).
This video from Mühle has a lot of great technique tips:
Regarding the linked video, some areas are impossible to make "flat". My chin is one such problem area, and it's my most tender spot. In another thread, I was advised to take really small strokes (say, 5mm long) around my chin - to not try to follow the curves in one pass. This has really helped me.Thanks for this, I have a pretty bad razor burn and irration right on my left side underjaw area, your post and that video gave me an idea what I did wrong.
