Tips For Successful Shaving - Another "Do" And "Don't"
DO rinse your razor frequently.
A razors edge with lather and cut hairs on it does not cut as well as a nice clean one. Razors with a smaller height (such as a 4/8 or 5/8) require more frequent rinsing than a 7/8 or 8/8 cleaver. But at the beginning, just trust me and do it often.
DON’T catch a dropped razor – EVER!
The razors that I hone will easily cut your flesh to the bone under the influence of gravity. It might even cut into the bone itself. I don’t care how much you spent on your razor. The $75-$400 you will spend on a new one is nothing compared to the surgeons bill, recovery time and nerve damage you will get from a deep cut.
You aren’t Harry Potter; this isn’t Hogwarts and Madame Pomfrey isn’t there to give you a bad tasting, but effective dose of Flesh-O-Mend potion. So trust me and DON'T DO IT!
