I was at a female neighbor's house with my fiance and they started talking leg shaving. My fiance was explaining the wonder of DE wetshaving for her legs and armpits. Somehow it got around to how straight shaving couldn't be done on those areas. I of course disagreed and told them about the many women on here that still use a straight. They didn't believe that it could be done and dared me to shave my own self in that fashion. I didn't have a straight shave ready so I used a Shavette and managed a very nice smooth shave on both complete legs plus my arm pits using a personna med blue blade half and cremo cream. Now I have to deal with the itching until it all grows back. On the plus side I have yet another convert to traditional wetshaving. They bought a micro one from walmart and a brush and soap set from CVS. Worth it? Completely.
