    I've had a rough time using an artisan single edge razor (Colonial General) mainly around my chin area. I almost gave up to go back to DEs when I came up with an idea of 1st pass DE, second pass SE. It seemed to work, is this crazy or no?

    It’s crazy yes. But your technique will improve in time. Until then keep being crazy and enjoy the shaves.

    You're fitting right in here, just fine.
    A beard has no chance against a crazy man with a sharp blade.

    I often switch razors while shaving. The ideal razor for my cheeks may not be ideal for my chin. That can even change depending on my skin or soap each day. Do what works for you. To answer you question, yes. Embrace your insanity so that no one can hold it against you.

    None of us here suffer from insanity..We enjoy every minute of it! as for your shave, there’s nothing crazy about trying something, finding that it didn’t work out for you & then going back to something you did before.

    You could try a Feather Proguard or Kai Protouch guarded blades that will help with your technique. Great blades and a easy DFS++.
