    Fast Eddie- +1 on Mantics videos. Notice in some of his videos he holds the razor by the very end. That makes it harder to apply pressure inadvertently. What blades are you using??
    Sorry for highjacking this thread topic, but does anyone know of a New England meet. I may start a thread in meet ups so we can throw around the idea and see who is interested. SWMBO will not be happy to learn our place may host a meet up mwuhahaha.
    Razor rich, but money poor. I should have diversified into Eschers!

    Less pressure, shorter strokes.

    Hey guys thanks for all the advice I went through 2 feather blades in 6 shaves. I think in going to heal up and switch over to the chroma premium (?) next shave and see how they work I'll be watching mantis videos later today

    Feather blades are the sharpest but least forgiving blade out there. Good move trying a different blade at least for now.

    In fact: don't apply any pressure. Let the razor rest lightly against your face.
    Resist ALL desires to apply any pressure.

    Nearly all razors have sufficient weight to cut without you pressing on them. Let the razor set the pressure.

    Once you apply pressure: you're exposing yourself to all the other flaws in your technique (angle, lather, motion, etc...).

    Go to a 2 pass shave instead of a 3 pass shave. with and across the grain. And derby blades I have discovered are a bit gentler. Gives those a try.

    Jump back up to 3 passes when you get better and are comfortable with the 2 passes
