You can tell a good and a bad shave straight away but it takes 12-18 hours before you know if it was a great shave.
In situations where I am having difficulty see, I will open the blade up to 180°. Don't be afraid to try it.I can vary my reach by mixing up my grip. I normally put two fingers and my thumb on the tang. If I only put one finger and my thumb on the tang, I can reach further and in the case of shaving next to my ears the increased reach improves my ability to see what I am doing. A small win.

Hand resting on the paper while writing? Austin Palmer would be rolling in his grave if he heard that!I find it extremely helpful to brace part of my hand/fingers against my face when doing fine detail work around and under my beard. It's hard to explain, but an analogy would be to handwriting. When handwriting, one braces the heel of their hand against the desk, allowing for fine finger work. Think of how hard it would be to write well if you did not brace. Depending on my grip, I may have the back of my thumb near the web of my hand, or the web itself, against part of my face. It depends on my grip and if I am stroking up or down. But I can generally find a way to brace, allowing for much greater control. Took me a while to figure this out.
