    It may be helpful, but like anything else in this "sport" there are variances. You need to find what will work for you personally, and other factors will come into play such as style of razor and the weight of the handle, head, etc. Good luck

    Depending on the razor there can be radical differences in the way you hold the razor as you shave so their description only applies to the razor they show in the article.

    I thought the article was well written. The article cautions about pressing hard with the razor head. It emphasizes allowing the weight of the head to do the cutting. To me it accomplishes its purpose.
