Good for you take it slow and focus on your technique. Nothing like a sloppy shave or a sink full of blood to turn someone off of shaving the old fashioned way, lol. A single blade with few passes is tons better for sensitive skin and ingrowns than pretty much all of the commercial stuff. I'm betting you will like the results.

I'm definitely in. I enjoyed the brush and warm lather so much that I'm looking forward to the next shave. I also really want to see how my skin responds to shaving again tomorrow.

I find the first shave with a new blade is sorta rough, then the next ones are much smoother.

It's like the first shave knocks the burrs off the blade, so the second shave starts with a broken in blade maybe??

Any one else notice that here?

I said you would enjoy it! Smoothe shave huh??

After getting used to a DE you will realize that the fancy new razors are nothing but marketing crap that people buy into.

I follow up my shaves with a splash of witch hazel, to soothe any nicks and to keep my skin in good shape.

I meant to do that, but forgot. I'm at a campground for the weekend seeing a couple of my sister's field hockey games and the witch hazel was in my bag rather than on the sink.
