God yes. Won't be so bad once I get a tactile memory of holding the razor at the right angle with no pressure. But for now, given how long it takes to get a decent shave without skinning myself, it makes my fingers hurt/tired before I have finished.

I'm azscoob over there too, tons of good info there for the shaving noob and vetran shaver.

Do you have a brick and mortar shop too or just online? I will be driving right past Janesville on my way up to Eagle River this August for a little R+R, and a few of Yoop's beers. I could swing by on my way home and pick up a few pounds of hops to take back with me.

Let me know, I always try to accommodated a fellow HBT'er. You driving from AZ?

I just signed up on B&B like a month ago, I've been reading up and learning. As my wife puts it "not another damn hobby!" I told her it's not a hobby it's shaving, she's not buying it.

Flying into O'hare and driving up after visiting family.

i bought 3 old SE razors,2 of which i had professionally sharpened,i've been using it for a little over a week,i've had a few nicks but nothing to cause alarm,its easier on the shaving strokes than i imagined,the nicks came from carelessness moving the razor from one spot on my face to another!my speed is definitely increasing but the whole chin/mouth area takes me forever.
i rub an alum block around my face afterwards,that lets you know of any small nicks,after my second shave loud words were nearly expelled!

Yeah same handle, like I said I have not posted yet.

Stop at the Ale Asylum, right off of I-90 in Madison, good beers!

I had the same response the first time I used a styptic on something that wouldn't stop bleeding. I was expecting a little sting but what I got really caught me off gaurd.

So wait a minute.....

I am only 9 hours late to the party? You are telling me I could have saved myself a world of looking stupid if I just started my thread yesterday?

Here is mine -

http://www.amazon.com/Parker-82R-Hea...3765083&sr=8-2

Parker 82R Super Heavyweight. I think it was the bestseller on Amazon at my time of purchase.

I kind of regret not going with a slant bar. I understand the slantbar would have been a bear to learn on, but once I got it down, does a better job.

As for blades, I have not seen this mentioned yet, but it is really popular to get a sampler pack and find out what blade is best for you. They all look the same, but really are different. The Japanese feather blades are really popular, and I agree - they are freakishly sharp.

Another little shave geek think is the concept of Uberlather. It is a combination of a cream, a soap, and a few drops of glycerine. I started with Colonel Conk's soap only, but really liked the combination of all three products better.

I got the styptic, but still looked for the Witch Hazel with a lot of hope.

I dunno nothing from nothing, but are you sure 9 hours would have been enough?
