I started using a buffing stroke this morning and also paying careful attention to the angle I was using. I kept the head of the razor close to my face during the buffing as to not shave with an aggressive angle. This will take a lot of practice with this razor as well as with most razors. The shave went well with no nicks, cuts, weepers or irritation. A smooth and comfortable shave but it did take me a bit longer to shave since I am not used to this method of shaving. I will have to say my face is very smooth. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
