I posted this on another forum, thought you folks might be interested too. ("Kamisori" here means a traditional Japanese straight razor, not the beautician supply company...FYI). OK, so I finally worked up the nerve to do this...of course, the camera angle is crappy, and it cuts off at the ten minute mark (there's another minute and a half or so, if anyone wants to see it I can upload it separately) but I HOPE the grips and angles are clear enough to those wondering about using these razors. I'll make a better one sometime, I guess...if I can figure out what to do with my camera. In the video, I mention the WTG/ATG/XTG a lot, but I try not to think about it a lot when using a Kamisori, because the most important thing to me is finding the simplest angle with the Omote on the face. For really tough hair (around my "goatee area") I go WTG because I can , and because the hair cuts easier that way. Everywhere else, I just find what works at the time. You'll notice I'm still working on stretching/weird expressions. If anyone has any advice, PLEASE feel free. Also, my left hand sometimes has a mind of its own. Pay no attention. That's exactly what it wants... I shave this way because it works for me. If it doesn't work for you, don't shave this way--like I said, when it comes to Kamisori I'm a traditionalist because I was taught by a traditionalist. I trust him. But it's your face, and your razor, so do what you feel is best. That's a vintage size 2 (ni-chou-gake) Kamisori stamped 1968 (convenient that...) but the maker's name is very difficult to read--Chikushino, perhaps. ALSO, I have no idea why my face looks that red in the video. It certainly didn't in the mirror... Sooo....be kind!
