I was around on the FB groups for a while before joining this forum . Guys preach don't try feather until your more experienced . I don't quite understand this theory. I went from a Derby extra to Feather . I didn't cut my face off or anything . I just found it to be a 2 pass instead of 3 pass shave . Did anyone else experience the don't use sharp blades to shave with as a newbie ? I used a feather within my first 10 DE shaves against the advice of several .
