Hello everyone, 
I am pleased to find the group. Shave Nook was recommended to me by a friend and I took the time to browse before signing up. 

I am excited to be able to have this Shaving Forum available. I've returned to wet shaving after years of cartridge use. I have only been back at it for 4 months and I am going through what seems to be the normal learning curve of the wet shaver. I am currently using a Razor Rock Razor called the "deep Knurled" which probably has the head of their mild razor the "Mission" which Micheal Freedburg compares to the Jagger D89 or, a beginner's razor. 
I am not getting the performance that I expected from my current razor. I am loving the shave experience but I am not getting the closeness that I desire. I am looking into purchasing a 2nd razor that will be a little more "efficient" but not aggressive. I am considering a mild Open Comb razor. I have read up on the Parker 26C, the razor Rock Jaws, The Pheonix DOC and an R41. 
I would enjoy hearing opinions on my 2nd razor from more experienced shavers.

Welcome to TSN Shave Balmy. I would recommend starting a new thread in the DEs section. You will get plenty of help on a second razor. I would recommend a slant or a Jaws/Parker/DOC.

See you in the threads!

Welcome to the forum. I wouldn't put the 89 down as some kind of contraption with training wheels and water wings to be discarded. It's a mild razor but a good one. I haven't heard of anyone staying indoors for 3 months until they can shave with a more aggressive unit.

Welcome Balmy! Are you making multiple passes? I wouldn't worry though, just keep at it. It's a learned skill and I doubt anyone gets close shaves at first. I know I didn't but now almost every shave is smooth, close and bloodless.

Welcome! I started on mild razors, too. Angle could be the issue. Too much in one direction, and the shave is rough. Too much in the other, and you're barely cutting.

Something else that helped me starting out was you understanding the grain of my beard.
