Up until I was about 25 I could skip a day without looking too unshaven. Now I'm 42, I definitely need to shave every day to look presentable for work, and I have some serious thick coarse growth under my jaw line. I shave every day. When I was using the electric I didn't like to skip a day because ...

Nobody taught me to shave. I was pretty fuzz free as an adolescent, but I do remember one time trying to tidy up the ends of where sideburns would have been, and drawing blood. I did it completely dry, probably with a borrowed razor from my dad. And I think I was mostly hacking at actual head hair r...

Ichabod, Well, well, don't tell me that there's another poor wetshaver stuck here in Tampa. All these years, I've struggled with this place alone, gloomily haunting the dept. stores and strip malls in a never ending, and generally fruitless search for quality shaving products, or another traditiona...

Pressure

I think the pressure question may be the problem when I'm going uphill under my chin - I guess I use too much pressure as soon as I can't work with gravity. Trial and error is the key. Thanks for the tips guys, and this is a great resource. I'm eagerly anticipating the adjustable as a way to dial in...

The more I do this, the more questions I have...

So, I decided to try shaving with a "real" razor recently, after a couple of years with a Braun, self cleaning thing (the name of which suddenly escapes me). The shaves with that were quick, and predictable. Predictably mediocre - I'd often end up hunting down odd hairs the razor missed with a Senso...
