"I just used the sic isles that came with my kitchen knives. The blade is pretty thin, so they cut right through it. I had to sharpen them afterwards though, but no big deal."

"I am planning on getting into straight razors eventually, but at first I want to master the art of making good lather and becoming more focused during the shave. I also don't want to discard the safety razor that I just bought, but rather make…"

"What did you use to trim the razor? It seems like a solution that will work well for me as well, as I think the main problem is it not being aggressive enough. "

Using a three-piece safety razor

Greetings!I have recently acquired a three-piece safety DE razor with brush from Mühle (Mühle Rytmo Black Fibre), and so far I am loving the experience. I have been wet-shaving every since I started shaving, but using cartridge razors from Gillette and recently Wilkinson Sword, which annoyed my skin and was a tedious experience. After some training, I am close to getting a pretty clean shave, but I feel I am using the safety razor wrong.

"I'm heading to a new gun shop/range next week with some buddies and I will ask them about it. Long range/precision would be fun too! I do have some experience with that type of shooting but am looking for something a bit more intense (IMO)."
