    I think the hard part is for the new guy. Usually, no matter how well a razor can shave, the new person has difficulty until their technique improves. Typically, they find fault with the razor and after a razor is re-honed or they pick up another down the road, the shaves improve. A lot of times they remember the first razor as not a good one and move on. There is a lot of individual nuance here as we all have different feelings, different levels of skin sensitivity and and tactile abilities. Eventually though, it usually comes out in the wash. Some people like one type or grind of razor better than another, one type of soap better than another, strop and so on. Usually, with time and personal preference in consideration, most people settle on what works best for them on all fronts and come to enjoy this art form for all the fun and pleasure it provides.

    Have fun.
