I must admit it is very difficult to use. I guess it takes several weeks until you can properly shave with one of them, but I have to say that the first experience was not really bad at all. Not a single cut or nick!!! Good for me!!!
Here are some pics I took:
* After taking a shower I applied the shaving soap. It is La Toja soap, made in Spain. It is a great shaving soap with a lovely scent. If you've never used it, you should give it a try.
* Actually shaving. I started with the sideburns. I was not afraid to cut myself in that area. Then I did the area under the nostrils, the neck and the lower lip. I wasn't brave enough to shave the chin though. I was really afraid to cut the skin in that area. I sure need more practice.
* In this last picture, you can see the results, but be warned that I'm lying here. The results were by far *not* that good. I shaved myself again with a regular DE razor. Why am I publishing the picture then? Just to prove that there are no cuts or nicks whatsoever and that I survived my first cut-throat razor experience.
I will practice until I master the art of classic shaving. There is plenty of things to learn but I'm willing to take the challenge. (Thanks again to my friend Mr. Frood for encouraging me to get the razor).
