REmember that the key with a DE is a light touch. If you're used to the Mach 3,4,7..you are used to putting a lot of pressure down when you shave. A DE needs almost no pressure to do the job right. What takes a little fiddling is the angle you need to get the best shave..it takes no more than a week or two before you're a DE expert...
