IMO, nothing cuts like a Feather.

I have steel cables growing out of my very sensitive skin. And if I use anything other than a Feather in my Merkur Slant, I get pulling and irritation galore.

So long as I keep the angle right (i.e. blade as parallel to my face as possible), the Feather+Slant combo is smooth smooth smooth.

I've gotten a few really, really good shaves - about 10 shaves in. Even got in some against the grain work last shave, bu am still experiencing irritation around collar. I'm taking the advised pre-shave steps and am using bay rhum aftershave - maybe I need a sharper blade? Been using astra, derby and shark thus far. Regardless, I have enjoyed the hell out of the process and sub-culture and am pleased with the results. Thanks for the pointers.

Any straight razor recs? Some of the videos on youtube I've seen people cruising through a shave with a 'cut throat' pretty quickly and producing what looks like a great shave at the end of it.

I was surprised yesterday, got a surprisingly good result by using cold water to shave. I'll definitely try that again - a word of caution though, it may be cut-inducing to try it if you don't yet have your technique nailed down well.

picked up a jack Black silver tip badger brush and Kiehls cream for use with brushes. Huge improvement over the canned crapola. I'm really impressed and it makes for a much more enjoyable shave. Far less irritation.

Next- moving onto the DE razor.

I'm using Kheils shaving cream, then herbal toner (astringent) then I'm using a normal face cream and I've noticed that my face seems dry.

Should I specifically use a facial moisturizer intended for use after shaving or is it the wrong shaving cream for my face?

Could be wrong cream. My skin can get somewhat oily, so I need a soap that dries it up a little, sounds like you need the opposite. Moisturizers are hardly unheard of though. Many use them, and many really should use them.

Figured out today thats its just my blade getting dull. Got a bottle of some fantastic aftershave balm though.
