On Using a Straight Razor

I’ve tried various razors and trimmers to either shave or shape my beard. Trimmers are fast but they leave behind stubble. My electric shaver doesn’t quite offer the precision or closeness I desire. I’ve used Gillette’s Fusion, and while it delivers a close shave, it’s challenging to maneuver when shaping my beard. However, my recent purchase of a straight razor has been a game changer. While I had a few nicks and cuts initially, mastering the right angles and pressure gave me the perfect shave. When I am shaping up my beard, it offers both control and exceptional precision. I wish I had made this switch earlier. Putting razor sharp steel next to my throat every morning makes me feel alive.
