Shaving sense

    For the longest time, especially during my learning stage, I relied heavily upon a mirror to track the progress of my shave. I now rely exclusively on the sense of touch and the sound (or lack of sound) of the razor cutting as my "shaving gps"; the mirror relegated to moustache and sideburn lining. What about you?

    I still watch in the mirror. I do listen too to see if the angle is right. I use WH for touch up pass and when putting it on I can feel where I need to take a bit extra time.

    For most of my life I have been shaving without mirror, while being under the shower. I also shave without mirror while sitting in the sauna. It really is not that difficult.

    Funny that...for most of my life I've shaved WITH a mirror and the results were less than spectacular. Didn't learn how to shave correctly until I stumbled upon traditional shaving.

    Didn't Mike Jackson do a song about a man in the mirror?

    Mirror when shaving face, no mirror when I shave my head.

    I always use a mirror.
    Not a necessity for DE (safety) razors, but I find them essential for SR shaving.

    I use a mirror, but I don't use it to make sure the angle is correct. I can tell by feel now.
