My Manly Shave

Yesterday I shaved with a straight razor for the first time. I got it for my birthday this Thursday. First impressions: It’s kind of like a trade-off between “Wow this feels great, I’m getting a really close shave” and “Steady hands. Steady hands. Come on steady hands. Please let me keep my hands steady.”

Obviously I’ll get better at it over time and it won’t take as long as it took the first time, but at least I had no cuts on my first try! Wish me luck!
