    (Originally posted in the straight razor thread)

    My first shave with a shavette.
    For my first shavette, I chose the Feather SS Japanese (Kamisori style) razor, thinking it would be easier to handle and maneuver. I've had some experience with traditional -- western style -- straights, but it was a few years ago.

    Razor: Feather SS Japanese
    Blade: Feather ProGuard -- My goto blade for my AC razors is Schick Proline, but I figured, what the heck, training wheels
    Soap: Saponificio Veresino 70th Anniversary Special Edition
    Brush: Plisson Synthetic
    AS: Saponificio Veresino Dolomiti
    Skin: Stirling Witch Hazel with Aloe
    Sutures: 4/0 Nylon with surgical needle
    Extras: Life-Flight on speed dial

    The razor was, indeed, much easier to maneuver, especially with my off-hand. Size, weight and balance are perfect with this razor. The shave went much better than expected with only a couple of small weeper around my chin -- a cleft is problematic. I took my time and got an amazingly close one-pass shave in most areas. The area along my jawline is my most difficult area with any razor and, as it's a difficult angle, I did not attempt too close a shave there.

    Overall, it was a fun shave with a very nice new tool. I'll keep using the Guard blades as I refine my skill and eventually, try the Schicks.

    SOTD 01232019.gif This was my ninth shavette use since December 30, 2019. Been using Personna Lab Blue blades in the Luxor with increasingly better results. I became aware of another model made by this manufacturer - The Luxor Pro. It has safety tabs that help cover the heel & toe of the DE blade. I've relied on a tip by Jared @PickledNorthern - muting the tips of the blade by a gentle rub on a sharpening stone.
