    Default Shaving Tutorial V3.0 now with closeups

    these were filmed at the DFW 2009 Summer get-together. Fritz was kind enough to help me by filming, and Spazola was there for color commentary. Hope this helps any newbies that are interested.

    Techniques covered:
    coup d/maitre
    with the grain
    across the grain
    against the grain
    diagonal passes

    I'm fully clean shaven, started off with 3 days off stubble so it would be more obvious. feedback is always welcome!

    nice one. this should be stickied somewhere for newbies, and is mandatory watching. some nice technique there that i hadnt seen done in that specific way before (i.e. cross pattern under the neck using that type of hold on the razor).

    The diagonal passes on the neck really helped me after seeing them in one of the earlier videos.

    Have a big enough brush???
    Kidding.
    You do some passes the opposite of what I do. I'll have to try your variation.
    I just don't know if I can do the soul patch ATG right out of the box. I've never tried, so perhaps.
    How you talk while shaving without cutting yourself is amazing, I would be bleeding like a stuck pig.
    Well done.

    haha, i did kinda nick myself a little on the chin from talking and shaving. i have a very light soul patch, so atg is all i need, if you have thicker hair there, wtg should be done first.

    After watching these, I think I've been laying by razor down too much. I'm going to have to try standing it up a little more.

    Thanks for the vids.
