Well a virgin no longer. 1 weeper(slight) 1-coulda been worse cut. and a shave in one pass that a fusion cartridge works at in 4 or more passes, My soap --Mike's Natural Tallow, my messer--a DOVO122 w/ palisander scale sold by and sharpened by The Superior Shave, done on a coticule. Yes after the cut , my hands shook a little voice was screaming, but I finished with the blade. For those of you that are familiar with Martin Scorsese's student film of a shave, that's what I was seeing.
So after all Is said and done, onto getting better at it ! And of course, the next blade and brush. Also thanks to all the fine members here , you all helped me immensely !
Is it time to shave yet? Biggrin

here's the link to the film--be patient

Well that is Great!!!

However, the Razor is a Straight Razor or Straight or Cut-Throat.

An SE is a Single Edge Safety Razor like the Gem, Star or Ever-Ready. (Well SE could be a Straight Edge but usually it is for Single Edge.)

Practice Makes for a Perfect Shave.

Have Fun.

(I see that you have been a member as long as I have and I don't know if I said "Welcome to TSN." so I will do that now.)
