    Default Do you use right and left hand to hold DE razor

    Ok just have to ask a question. With my straight I use both hand to shave. My right hand for the right side of my face, and my left hand for the left side. The exception is ATG on the neck, I use the opposite hand.

    Do most people use 2 hand with their DE?

    Thanks

    I use both hands when I shave with a DE. Definitely. Right side, right hand; left side, left hand.

    Straight razor shaver and loving it!

    I use both hands as well......

    Didn't use to, but after learning both hands with the straight razor, it was a natural.

    Have fun,

    Right hand only. I fooled with both with a straight but have gotten so used to shaving with the right that I am just sticking with it one way or the other. No more DE for me in years but if I were to pick one up again it would be dominant hand.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Every now and then, when I am traveling, I really like my little Schick Injector with the bakelite handle. Not sure if that qualifies as a DE, but it is a fun razor that does a respectable shave.

    Have fun,

    Never tried using my left hand with a DE. When I was using cartridges I only used my right so when I transitioned ot DE's I never thought to use my left. Even now that I'm starting to use straigts as well, and I use both with that, when I pick up a DE it's right hand only. The reason being I think it's a lot easier to manipulate a DE with one hand to cover all areas then it is with a straight.

    I only use my right hand (my dominant hand) to shave with a DE. I've never tried my left hand.

    Back in the mid twentieth century when the DE was all there was, I used only my right hand. I haven't used one of those in a good 30 years. Since discovering straights, I haven't used anyhing else. It's unlikely I will.

    Default Right and Left Hand . . .

    Gentlemen:

    For the straight razor I use both hands and for the double edge mostly the right hand.

    Regards,
    Obie
