    Well try a manual shaver and decide for yourself.

    In ideal conditions, the cutting edge of a manual shaver glides along the surface of the skin and cuts the hair at that level.

    I don't know everything about all electrics, but in the olden days of Remington, Norelco, and Braun, whiskers had to poke through a non moving guard to get to the blade.

    BTW, what shave gear do you like?

    There was a HUGE argument about Foil Shavers being used after a SR for the best shave ever on the SRP fb Page a week ago

    Now IMHO if the foil razor touches a hair after the SR shave it wasn't done properly but that is just me

    There's better ways to remove hair than holding a rabid squirrel up to one's face.

    ...which is how an electric razor feels to me.

    I've tried some of the electric razors and never got a decent shave, always went back to my trusty Slim.

    Yes, you are right. I have a Straight Razor bought from Amazon. But I don't use it very often, except for the weekend, because it will take much time to shave my face. I also bought an electric shaver, the shaving experience of my straight razor is better than my electric shaver, but the electric one is OK for me, clean and comfortable enough, and save time.
