What Did You Learn From Your Shave Today?

    I've learned that I get the best results by shaving every 36 hours. So if I shave Monday evening, I wait until Wednesday morning to shave again, then Friday evening, etc. If I instead shave every 24 hours, my skin doesn't have enough time to completely rejuvenate after each one, and irritation accumulates.

    And after experimenting for a year and a half with different razor blades, I've concluded that German Wilkinson Sword blades are perfect for me. I'll now look for others that perform as well, just to satisfy my curiosity.

    Through a lot of experimentation, I've realized that the best angle for me to hold any razor is obtained by bridging the gap between cap and blade, "riding the cap." That angle always shaves efficiently, but with minimal irritation.
