Parijat, straight razors terrify me. Not in the hands of a pro — I like when a barber uses one to shave the scruff at the back of my neck — but actually using one on my face, or near any large blood vessels, or skin… <shiver> So I give you high marks for trying (and succeeding!). 👏 But I will stick to my wimpy mini-blade Trac II clones to keep my neck clean (most of me is beard) [and you think, “He meant most of his face is beard,” but no, I stand by my original statement].

(Thanks for the nudge, Tre!)
