I thought that was what styptic and bits of TP were for... I've been doing it wrong? Seriously, though; Cartridge razors have dumbed down shaving. They have guards, bumpers, training wheels. They pivot for you so there's never a care for the angle of attack. I'm not knocking them to be mean. They have their place. We have members that prefer them, and some folks take them when traveling to keep the greedy fingers of Airport Security off their fine razors. The Technique OP asks about starts with forgetting the cart style of shaving; pressing the blade(s) against your face. That the "no pressure" technique the DE shaver learns. Along with Riding the Cap, Beard Mapping, Pre & Post shave, Lather Making... Wow! I've learned a few thing in the last 19 months.
