The Goodfellas’ Smile | Straight Razor INFERNO
Traditional straight razors or cutthroats are wonderful things to own, I have a few. However, there is nothing on this Earth sharper than a DE blade. Take a DE blade snap it in half and place it in the Abysso or any other razor designed to accept the half DE blade.
The result is by far a superior shave. A little practice and you will always have the cleanest, smoothest shave possible. It is a skill worth learning, shaving becomes an art not a requirement.
- Break the blade: remove a blade from the package and, without removing it from the wrapper, fold it in half on the long side. The pressure will break it into 2 equal parts.
- Insert the blade: remove the removable insert from the head of the shaver by pushing it outwards. Place the half blade on the appropriate pins of the coupling that act as a guide. Gently reinsert the blade into the razor head.
- Angle the blade as close to the skin as possible and away you go.
- Make sure the skin is pulled tight before the stroke.
