    As I peer over my stacks of razors and misc wet shaving paraphernalia. Nah, you'll be fine just one more razor and your set for life

    Today I discovered at new approach. I recently bought a couple of Single Edge GEM Micromatics (Clog Pruf & Open Comb). I usually do one pass with a straight and then 1-2 more with a DE to get a clean head shave. The straight knocked it down and the DE cleaned it up.
    Well, no more straight switching to a DE for me. The Clog pruf took me from a weeks growth to BBS in 2 passes.

    When I shave my head I use a Merkur Slant and Feather blade = BBS every time with no irritation
    Straight razor is used for beard duty and occasional head shaving

    I have used a straight on head and face for a while, but after twice catching the back of my head (once quite tastily) i went back to safety razors for my head. I have just acquired a new toy for this purpose, a Headblade ATX scalp blade, only used it once, but it makes short work of my head and was really swift.

    I did my head with a straight once, just to see what it was like. My head was definitely not as sensitive as my face, but I think I would swap razors or at least give the blade a good stropping before going from my face to my head.

    When I started I'd use one razor on my face and another on my head. Now I just give my razor a good stropping after my face and use it for my head too.

    My head is very easy to do with a Mach3 in the shower. I take a Williams mug bar and rub in on and make some lather with my hand. The skin is tight and its easy to just feel my way around.

    My face, however, is only touched by my straights and a variety of higher end soaps that I enjoy. That is my slow zen-like relaxation time to pamper myself.
