I think you basically answered your own question. For most people, against the grain with long whiskers is sure to produce irritation.xcubbies said:After a drink, I started to think, why shave first with the grain if it is so unproductive. On my cheek, where one against stroke will do the job, what's the point of potential irritation if I can just begin with against the grain, then, across the grain. What's the wisdom?
How good is your shave with the M3? From your point of view, is it close enough- does it stay clean long enough for you? Is it irritation free? What are you looking for?grj said:i have been shaving with a mach 3 for years using a brush and the trumper or taylor products... how much "better" of a shave would i get with a DE razor and which one should i get ..thanks
Joe Lerch said:Realize that the DE requires a commitment. You will have to learn technique. It won't be a no-brainer like the M3. And while you're learning the shaves may be worse. When you do learn the technique it will even make your M3 shave better.
