    read som where that to get good skin stretch on wet and slippery skin you can take som alum on your fingers.then the friction would be as if the skin was dry.have tried this on my latest shaves an it works like a dream.much better grip and easy to get a good skin stretch.

    I pretty much learned how to use a straight by watching Dov's video. About the 3:23 mark he mentions the alum.

    That's the video where I heard about it. Couldn't for the life of me remember the guy's name as I wanted to link to that, as well. Good pull!

    I'm learning new things everyday since first starting. Sometimes when I think I've discovered some secret or tip, a little research shows that it's pretty common knowledge. I'm still determined I'll have an original idea eventually lol

    This was a game changer for me, in getting good with straights.

    Okay, I've watched this video twice and I mean this with no disrespect to my SR brothers, but in the immortal words of Swiftus, "You guys are nuts, NVTS, nuts."

    It is among seasoned wetshavers, but with new people all the time, it's worth repeating from time to time.
